    Rampage is a total douche. All he has is excuses and complaints, he makes horrible decisions (going to get something to eat when his fighter is about to fight) and I dont even think he really says anything when he talks. He just cracks jokes and seems clueless.

    On the flip side Rashad is coming off great. Forget the wins/losses, just coaching ability and caring for his fighters. He seems like a nice guy, which is good because a lot of people used to think he was cocky or just didnt relate to him. Im definetly impressed with his decisions,coaching and attitude.

    Rampage is the worst coach in the history of TUF.

    He is actually worse than Ken Shamrock.

    Yeah I feel the same. When the season started I was a fan of Rampage and didn't really like Rashad that much (although I was rooting for him when he was in the last heavyweight TUF season). But much like the Tito and Ken season, Tito really impressed me with how he treated his guys and trained his team. It was cool to see that his attitude was (mostly) for the cameras. Rashad's coaching and the way he stepped up after tonight's fight when Jackson's guy lost, really won me over.

    I still like Rampage, though. I just think he should stick to fighting and throwing rednecks over a flea's eye view camera man in slo-mo (I hope the keep that classic BA move in the A-Team movie).

    More commonly see it parallel. You can increase the force of the choke and add in a crank by moving in toward their body. Didn't pay attention to it enough to recall if that were an option.

    Take that with the caveat that I've probably never done an anaconda on anyone over blue.

    Possibly, though I would suggest that Rampage's assisstant's are overall better choices. Close though.

    Agreed. Rampage is a horrible coach and I suspect that he's a horrible teammate.

    Rashad comforting Rampage's fighter seemed, to me, to be done in all honesty. He seems like a good guy. He also seems to possess more than enough introspection to allow empathy (Jardine:Junk). Rampage is just an idiot. On top of that he seems like a good coach.



    I do also think that Damico has potential; he didn't look too bad.

    we've learned that variation of the anacaonda choke. basically the key to it is 3 things. the first is squeezing the rnc grip, kinda like a darce. the second is arching your back and the third is walking up. the walking up part is the part that really tightens it up. Walking into the opponent starts to crumple the opponents posture and the choke gets much tighter.

    He walked towards the head, the tap didn't come till he was near perpendicular. It was a textbook setup and finish.

    As for Rampage, seriously he is terrible. First, he doesn't even care enough to warm up his fighter. Second, he just ditches his fighter after the loss. And Third, his guy lost to Jiu-Jitsu so his new strategy is to "forget this passing the guard Jiu-Jitsu ****." Anyone that wins on Team Rampage will be due to pure talent and not their coaching.

    Shamrock bringing a nutritionist was dumb but at least he was a competent nutritionist. Rampage's ground coach is a guy that got outgrappled by James Irvin.

    Shamrock brought in a boxing coach and his old bodybuilder training partner from the 90's, right? And all the guys on his team wanted a jiu-jitsu coach.

    I just want Rampage to leave and never ever come back. His interview segments are moronic, he looks like an imbecile when he's coaching, and his post-fight behavior was so selfish I could not believe it. He even said "I'm dissapointed in my boy" or something similar. Within earshot of the fighter who just lost! What the ****?! You don't do that. Not one single person on the whole fucking team came over though.

    Evans' coaches did come over and console / prop up Damico. That's the biggest sign to me of the class and caliber of the coaching on both sides.

    I used to think Rampage was a goofball. Now I think he's a selfish stupid prick.

    They spent a fair amount of time telling us how well Kimbo did, how his boxing was controlling Nelson" and how "if he hadn't fired that knee, it might have been a different story" during this episode.

    Not sure if they were trying to convince the viewers or themselves, or both.
