Is TUF 19 the season of guys who don’t want it?

Thursday, June 12, 2014

UFC president Dana White sat down with TUF 19 coaches BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar, and asked a question he knew the answer to.

“Is it just me, or is this the season of guys who just don’t want it?”

Penn was the first to reply.

“F—ing exactly,” he explained, after a season where to date just one fight went to a finish.

White started in again.

“This season, the first f—ing question I want to ask is, do you want to be here? Do you give a s—?”

Then it was back to Penn.

“It's been a long six weeks of people just laying on each other,” said Penn. “When I lose a fight, there's a good chance I'm headed to the hospital. So I'm not going to be in the locker room telling everybody 'sorry' I'll tell you that.”

Then back to White, who challenged the remaining fighters to fight hard with the possibility of winning $50,000 in bonuses.

We'll see what happens.
