UFC Quick Quote: Does a 5-2 Brock Lesnar have the credentials to coach TUF 13?

"In dealing with Brock, one minute, he can be into something, and the next minute, he can completely be not into something. I’m already prepared for this, mentally, and it’s gonna be a tough season. I know it is. Obviously, I was in communication with Brock and his team, and talking to them the whole time... There was no wheeling and dealing about the WWE. I think everybody knows how I feel about that. He’s under contract with me. The guy’s a former world champion, has beat guys and held the title. No matter what his record is, what the guy has accomplished in the short amount of time that he’s been in MMA is incredible. To say the guy doesn’t have the credentials to coach ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ is probably one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard."

UFC President Dana White fires back at critics (via Sherdog.com) who don't believe that Brock Lesnar, with a 5-2 record and sporadic fight schedule, has the credentials to effectively lead a team of up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighters. Lesnar was named as coach of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 opposite heavyweight contender Junior dos Santos (12-1) for a March 30 debut on Spike TV. Can Lesnar prove his doubters wrong? Or will his disdain for the cameras and contempt for rigorous schedules turn this upcoming season into one long episode of The Real Housewives of Las Vegas?
