Coaching went as I expected. Dos Santos doesn't speak enough English to really get through to his guys, and Lesnar is relatively new to the sport as well. During the fight I only heard him shout a few sentences to his fighters, such as "You have to make something happen!"
I actually disagree about Lesnar. I wasn't sure how vocal he'd be during the fights, but he actually did a pretty decent job, considering it was a mismatch. He was talking rather than yelling, which might account for it not being super noticeable. I've already forgot his first fighter's name, but I noticed it from the beginning that he was actually doing just about everything that Lesnar told him to do...or trying at the very least. Brock was coaching him on which over and underhooks to secure. He was telling him to roll towards his opponent from his back, to get the escape, because he kept trying to roll away, which was giving up his back. He was asking for an uppercut when they were back up on the feet, since we all knew the TD was coming again. When he was up against the cage, he was giving him specifics in regards to the placement of his head against the cage, as well as what was needed to try and escape. He did use a couple of very generic statements like you quoted above, but at that point, he was basically expressing to him that the fight is nearly over and unless he pulled something out of his ass, he was about to lose...I didn't count that against him, personally.
