Sunday, January 05, 2014

On the first season of TUF China though, one competitor might be the least experienced in the show’s history. Coach Cung Le recently revealed the fighter in a Q&A, but believes the UFC is not to blame:

“I’m not sure how many of you have seen the show, but some yoga instructor got through,” Le said. “That was not the UFC’s doing. I believe that was part of the TV show – he was from the hometown – and somehow that guy snuck under the radar.

“That was a decision I had to make. If you haven’t watched it, I won’t ruin it, but one of the coaches had to go and put a little hurt on him and let him feel what punches with four-ounce gloves feel like it.”
