It's only a rumor at this point, but The Telegraph in England is reporting that UFC is considering offering the coaching spots for season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter to UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre and the man he'll next defend against, England's Dan Hardy.

Not sure if this is a good idea but if GSP needs some more recovery time he could ease back into training with TUF.
I just can't imagine Dan Hardy as a TUF coach

Makes sense. It's the next title fight and these days TUF tends to pair up fighters about to face off for a title or a big grudge match, and we're 4-6 months from the fight anyway...if they stick to the usual TUF schedule this would likely put the fight in July assuming season 11 starts in April. Plenty of time to build it up and help introduce Hardy more to the fans outside England.

I was going to say please no, before seeing this post and remembering the groin injury, so this would be the best way to bridge the fight we just had and to a time when GSP could actually fight, and we should all know by know that Dan Hardy would be the face of the coaching for his team but like Rashad he brought Jackson and Nurse to also coach his team so Hardy is a perfect fit because we can see another person try and rattle GSP like Hughes did back in the "TUF Comeback " season

From what I remember hearing, Georges' groin is 100% right now.

mee to but with GSP's groin I do not think it would but hopefully GSP does not leave to be in the next "Professional" Movie then TUF would be really jinxed and should be taken off the air forever.

But GSP does know french

Ordinarily I would hate this idea (Dan Hardy shouldn't be fighting for a title much less coaching TUF IMO). However, because Georges needs time to heal and because this could give some good hype to an other wise lack luster fight, I am for it.

Dan Hardy likes to play mind games and he is a good character, so maybe it'll be a popular season. Not only that but it could hype a fight that would other wise be hard to market outside of the UK.
