I guess it makes sense.

Weren't both of them rumored to be coaches for 14?

Not surprised here.

Bleh.............

Want to see Faber as coach, but don't care about the rest. Meaning Cruz as a coach and a 3rd fight between the two.

Should be good as they have a bit of heated rivalry, could get interesting. Hopefully this season can be as entertaining as the last one!

Well we already know whose gonna have the best chin of the season

Not quite sure why--could be entertaining, but I just have a lack of interest in these two as coaches...let alone the matchup which I think most fans have zero desire to see again.

Can't say I'm excited about these two.

What's the deal with Bantamweights coaching Lightweight and Welterweight's? Cruz/Faber needed to coach season 14.

Agreed on the first part, I've seen them fight twice and I don't have any interest in seeing it again.

I think the reason they always coach different weight classes is because the contestants probably feel awkward being trained by the guy who is ultimately the guy they most want to beat.

It could also create situations where coaches might hold back from teaching someone something because they are good enough to be a potential title challenge at some point.

With the BW and FW's it would be even more pronounced with their divisions being newer and generally requiring fewer fights to get into title contention.

Torres vs Faber imo is a far better choice for coaches and the fight

I think they need to revamp the entire tuf series, I feel like the guys coming out of the series just arent panning out as they use too and becoming contenders. but then again i could just be tired of the smaller weight classes,

Mackavelli » Posted 1/25/07 5:04:00PM

It's a good move by the UFC. For being a champion, not enough people know who Cruz is. This will give him publicity, especially now that this season will be on FX. Im excited to see how they change the format now that Spike doesnt have a say. Hopefully it will be less reality TV and more mma.

I was wondering when they were going to cash in on Uriah before he loses his star power...if ever
