    From the day it was announced that he was coaching, I thought Sonnen was going to come off as the greatest mentor in TUF history.

    And the 35 year old guy who's known for his personality, has faced a great deal of adversity, has a tonne of experience and got a gift of a first fighter pick and let's face it, the equivalent of first fight pick as well, seems like he's pretty personable and experienced at coaching.

    I. Am. Shocked.

    How could this possibly happen?

    Conversely, could Sonnen be coming off as more likable due to Jones' tepid personality? I've never heard as many generic, empty motivational phrases as I've heard from Jones. Jones may be a good fighter, but his personality is amazingly dull. He's down there with Dan Henderson and Shane Carwin as the least interesting coaches in TUF history. And at least those guys said the occasional funny thing!

    Josh seems like a douche, but he's 24, an MMA fighter, and on TV, so maybe he gets a bit of a pass. I'd probably act like a douche too if I was that age in in those circumstances.

    Uriah seems like a good guy and a talent fighter, but he clearly needs some therapy. He's socially awkward and over sensitive. He can't seem to navigate social interaction well and misunderstands what's happening around him.

    I'm shock that Tor didn't put up a better fight. He seemed asleep. Not sure why he wasn't able to throw that switch.

    You're none of those things, and still a douche.

    Josh is 24? Yikes... I thought he was probably 10 years older than that.

    Yea I thought Josh was older as well. Was surprised to see he was only 24.

    At this point based on the show and how they use clips Chael looks like one of the Top 3 best Coaches on the show.
