"It’s been interesting. I’m actually impressed and happy with how competitive they both are and how into it they both are. One of the cool things that happens every season is, guys come on and they totally buy into it and get into it, and end up creating relationships for a lifetime. Brock’s been just like that. In the whole history of the show, I think we’ve only ever had Ken Shamrock come on and not give a sh*t. I think he’s the only coach that ever came on and didn’t care. Brock’s been good so far."
Once the shock wore off after the announcement of Brock Lesnar as a coach on the upcoming season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), talk turned to the big man's ability to actually do what was being asked of him. After all, the former heavyweight champion is better known for deer hunting than he is for people pleasing. However, if we're to believe UFC head honcho Dana White (cough), the pasty recluse has actually taken quite well to his team of TUF guys. I guess the skepticism that met Lesnar's comments that he "just wants these guys to win and do well" were unfounded. Are you more or less interested in this season after hearing "DW" praise his heavyweight stars?
