I saw the topic about the most annoying coach on TUF so far. So I thought I'd see who the favourite has been. Mine is Pulver. Everyone else comes across as annoying except Rich. But I didn't really like him as a coach either. Least favourite overall was BJ.

I love watching Serra rag in Hughes with his great impressions.
But he's not the greatest coach. I would have to agree that Jens was the best coach, he had a good feel for his guys.

I agree that Tito made the best coach, the way he seemed to actually care about and tried to help his team, unlike some others, who seemed to be in it for themselves.

Was surprised as that wasn't what I was expecting from him at all beforehand.

I also think Tito and Jens were the best coaches. I'd have to say Shamrock was one of the worst (on the show)

Shamrock did come off pretty bad, but then again he picked a team of quitters and editing also plays a major role. I would say Jens looked like he did the best, but then again who really knows anyways...

A toss up between Serra and Tito. I guess i like Serra cause I'm a native Brooklyn guy and can understand his perspective and his occasional New York impatience with some of his guys. Tito because of his work ethic and his genuine desire to see his guys succeed.

Serra is a pleasant surprise to me as I'm sure everyone. I mean nobody thought he was gonna be where he is today and I would not at all be surprised if he's so in Matt Hughes head that he just lays Matt out in December. After all, Matt said it himself. "This game is @ least 50% mental". IMO it's 90/10 with Serra 90% in Hughes head to 10% of Hughes current ability to defeat Matt physically.

Tito - I didn't like him before that season, but he impressed me as a person and coach.

By no means is Tito my favorite fighter, but he did seem like the best coach. He really got into his guys and tried to develop them. He also tried to bring in a wide variety in talent in his assistant coaches.

Worst coach so far was definitely Ken Shamrock (IMO)

Tito did a real good job and so did Jens.

Right, I agree. Of course this doesn't mean Shamrock's a bad coach in real life, just how he came off on the show (editing / fighters / etc factored in heavily of course).

I have to say Tito, just because i didn't like him until I saw him coach on the TUF. I thought he did a great job. Hughes sucks, I like Serra, St. Pierre, and Franklin.

I think Tito did the best job, Jens and Serra are tied for 2nd and Shamrock by far did the worst job. I think BJ just picked the wrong people because some of his fighters wouldn't listen too anything he would say.
