Forget the critics, Dana White says Brock Lesnar has been a good coach so far.
Some people have criticized Brock Lesnar's capabilities as a coach of the Ultimate Fighter, may it be for his lack of experience, or his desire to stay away from all the lights and cameras. For what it's worth though, Dana White has been impressed with what he's been seeing since taping started almost two weeks ago. He talked to MMA Fighting about it:
"It's been interesting. I'm actually impressed and happy with how competitive they both are and how into it they both are. One of the cool things that happens every season is, guys come on and they totally buy into it and get into it, and end up creating relationships for a lifetime. Brock's been just like that."
"In the whole history of the show, I think we've only ever had Ken Shamrock come on and not give a s---. I think he's the only coach that ever came on and didn't care. Brock's been good so far."
As you might remember a little over a week ago, Roy Nelson told our own Duane Finley about his TUF conspiracy theory, which entailed Lesnar walking out on TUF and Shane Carwin filling in for him to "save the day". Now, the UFC president has responded to this:
"There's no conspiracy. We just don't have anything for Shane right now. We don't have someone for him yet. It's funny that people think Brock is going to drop out. Brock's never dropped out of a fight in his life."
