Due to the second fighter in one season missing wt, one from each coach I pose the question. Their have been other issues from supposed favoritism to bringing in junk food and alcohol. Who would you rather not been picked by?

I haven't watched tonight's episode yet but up to this point both seem like decent coaches. Tate seems more well-rounded of the two, though. They've shown a lot of her striking and grappling with her fighters but Rousey seems to mostly grapple as expected.

I give Tate a pass on her fighter missing weight. They tried everything they could but if a guy doesn't want to do it then you can't physically make him. (And like I said I can't comment on Rousey's fighter until I watch the episode)

Similar situation, only Rousey's fighter eats whatever he wants and talks shit while doing it...its pretty ridiculous!

I'd rather be coached by Team Tate. She's not perfect by any means but overall she has done very well. A better job than Rousey, no doubt.

I'd still rather have Ronda as my coach unless I was Julianna Pena. I think Ronda has shown that she cares about the people on her team quite a bit, and Tate has at least one fighter that thought she played favorites the majority of the time they were there. Both had people miss weight, so that's a push, and honestly it's not like they can coach heart or post guards at the fridge 24/7. So for as much of a childish dummy as Ronda has made herself look, she still has been the better coach IMO.

Tate when back to the house and everything for that kid. I hated Rondas kid with a passion. All he did was talk shit, eat whatever he wanted, took a free pass and then took a shit on the whole competition when he was only one fight away. F that dude. Atleast Cody wasnt that much of a dbag.

Tough question. I thought Tito was a dick but he came across as a fantastic coach (IMHO). Neither of these coaches makes that impression on me. I say it's a draw.

I think both coaches had such a big lack of experience that they don't know what they're doing. Chael, Hughes, Randy, Nog, Ortiz etc...all those guys teach and assist in preparing fighters as well as being fighters so they had something to draw from. The Ladies seem to have none, they act like training partners who can teach a technique here and there but that is really it.

Really you couldn't come up with a better way to get your point across. You must be a real lady's man .

What? I have a GF so I dont have to be. And thats the best way of describing her atttitude. Every other coach has been bareable in TUF history but Tate comes across friendly and genuine where you can tell Ronda is just being ridiculous. Especially when she got in Hallmans face. Hallmans there to help where Rouseys own main coach is staring team tate down trying to start problems.

I respect heras a fighter but she comes off as a shitty person.

Shocked you don't get the point. So when your GF has a attitude you don't agree with do you call her a cunt? Also if that's really the best way you can describe her attitude you really need to read more.

Here is a link to dictionary.com you should try it sometime.

I do but thats the relationship we have she knows I dont mean it in the worst way. If you dont want me to say that word just say it you dont have to be so dramatic about it. Were grown ass men no for the dramatics.
