After this, I would like to actually see the top coaches from the top training camps actually do the coaching and training and putting the fighters through the paces.

The problem is that they may not have the big name appeal for wide audience appreciation.

Didn't Jackson coach against Forrest Griffin? He didn't impress me as a very effective coach that season, but that could have been the editing.

This is Quintons way of committing himself to something and avoiding a title match against Machida long enough for him to work on a few things.
He actually turned down the title shot with Machida and chose to do this instead. Trust me this is not that lucrative, he simply knew he had to learn more and change his game up to stand a chance with Machida... Smart on his part.

Either way this season should be interesting, hopefully they'll attract some new talent.

It still could work. It'd give the fighters who train under them a visibility boost.

They have some beasts for this next season, some NFL prospects and other athletic monsters were around for the tryouts, at least if they are in fact going to be working the heavyweights that the tryouts were for.... /shrug

I'd like to see this also. Mark Dellagrote, for example, may not be as big a name draw as the pro fighters, but that guy seems to turn out good strikers.
