Rampage Jackson: TUF 10 is called The Ultimate Fighter -- not The Ultimate Coach



"The only reason I’m blogging this is that I want everyone to know what's really up ... The show is for entertainment and it could be edited in many different ways, which doesn't always tell the true story ... My team and I had great chemistry and we got along great. Rashad and his team didn't even like each other ... Rashad acts so fake and cocky and he wants to act like he cares more about my fighter than I do and brag about how he’s a better coach than I am. But I tried to explain to him that I’m not a coach and I won’t be coaching after my fighting career, like he might ... Rashad thought the show was about him, about how good of a coach he could be and how fake he could be … But I knew what it was all about. The show is called the Ultimate Fighter, not the Ultimate Coach."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 10 Coach-turned-actor Quinton Jackson asks fans to take everything thing they see on the Spike TV reality show with a grain of salt. While Team Rampage is 0-5 heading into Episode 6, the former light heavyweight champion says unfavorable editing is as much to blame for his poor showing as actual coaching skills. Does opposing Coach Rashad Evans dwarf the former PRIDE star in the mentor department? Or is the editing room exacting revenge on Jackson for jumping ship in favor of the upcoming A-Team movie?
