It should come as no surprise that I wouldn't watch the Ultimate Fighter if it wasn't somehow tangently related to what I do here at Bloody Elbow. There's only so many times I can watch a couple of meatheads get drunk and yell at each other while 12 other dudes awkwardly watch.
This season has a shining bright spot: Team GSP coach John Danaher.
Danaher is an enigma. Google reveals that he's a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor at Renzo Gracie's academy at New York. He hails from New Zealand - if the subtle accent doesn't give it away - and owns a Masters Degree in philosophy from Columbia University.
And that's about it.
Who is this man? Is there anyway we can scrap the whole TUF format and give Danaher 45 minutes to talk about whatever he wants? Can he read stories to me when I go to sleep?
