You sympathize with a complete idiot, but call a guy who can actually string two coherent sentences together a douche?
I just thought his experience (40 some odd fights) and the fact that he is a "UFC vet" would count for something. I guess he really has been living under a bridge...

They are making Rampage look terrible, but I take it with a grain of salt. However, the 0-4 does add some credibility to the notion that either Rampage's team is doing something seriously wrong, or Rashad's team is doing something seriously right. I'd say it's a little of column A and a little of column B.
But yeah before you throw that howling hit and run A team superstar to the wolves, just remember it's a reality show.
I can't believe no one has commented on Kimbo's apparent glee at the thought that one of his teamates might be injured and unable to continue. Being "ready" to step back in is one thing. Actively (and obviously) hoping someone is unable to continue is another. You had your chance, Kimbo, and lost. Bad. Now the other fighters get theirs.

But Kimbo is the one that will draw the most viewers...

If Rashad loses a fighter before Rampage does, I wouldn't be shocked if they pressured him to take Kimbo on.
It's 0-5, actually. The only guys I could see making it through on Rampage's side now are Scott Junk and maybe Marcus Jones. Zak Jensen only has a chance if he fires a load of cock juice into his opponent's eyes at the start of the match, thus rendering him blind.
However, the 0-4 does add some credibility to the notion that either Rampage's team is doing something seriously wrong, or Rashad's team is doing something seriously right.
Yeah after seeing that clip on page 3 of this thread, I'd say they had video of both coaches looking bad and good. They just probably edited this way because Rashad's team is winning. But Rampage did some pretty blatant bad things as a coach too. Probably would have been difficult to make him look good.
