Lesnar - Dos Santos Announced as TUF 13 Coaches

Well Dana White finally came out with it after months and months of guessing (and eliminating). Junior Dos Santos and Brock Lesnar will be the next coaches on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter; although no Interim Title will be on the line, despite Cain being sidelined until the summer with a shoulder injury. My thoughts? I find this amusing.

Firstly, I'm not sure how much JDS's English has improved. Will he be able to accurately convey what he's trying to convey? Things like ground fighting require a certain level of detail, and I'm skeptical as to whether or not JDS can coach effectively.

Secondly....Lesnar? A coach? Seriously? I don't give a shit about his record (even though it's a thoroughly mediocre 5-2). The guy has NO skills whatsoever. People raved about his wrestling. "Oh, he's a D-1 wrestler, he can take anyone down and GnP the shit out of them!!!". Uh, no. Any moron can see that the guy doesn't actually do anything but steamroll into his opponents. No TD set-ups with strikes, and no actual thought process at all. Just the same "Hulk Smash" mentality. Who would want to be coached by him? He offers nothing. And it sickens me to think how much money Zuffa gave this guy to coach.

I don't see how this could go well for Lesnar, no matter what. His weak coaching will come through when his team gets owned as badly as Koscheck's team did, and JDS will open his face with his technical striking and lean, agile body-type.
