A few weeks back Cage Potato claimed that Frank Mir and Big Nog were going to be the coaches for the 8th painful season of TUF. Everyone had a good laugh and we moved on with our lives. But now the show is mere weeks away from filming, and Frank Mir is being very mum on the subject which makes me think there might be more truth to this than we once thought. I have a feeling these two guys could actually be the backup coaches in a case where the UFC can’t find anyone else.
There’s two ways to look at this news:
- BOO! Those are the worst choices for coaches ever! Shoot me in the fucking head!
- YAY! My favorite fighters aren’t tied up for the next 7 months on a reality show that’s going to suck regardless of who’s coaching.
Surprisingly enough, I’m taking the glass half full option here, because the last thing I want to see is GSP or Fitch or god knows who else stuck in limbo forever.
