    Looks like this season will debut on Sept 16th.

    I know it was posted already but it did not include all of the fighters nor the confrontation that led to Rampage and Rashad coaching against each other:

    Season 10 of the popular Ultimate Fighter reality series is already making tremendous waves throughout the fight community. Before the announcement that Internet Streetboxing Sensation Kimbo Slice was going to take part as a contestant on the show there was already a buzz surrounding this season due to the announcement that former UFC Light Heavyweight Champions "Sugar" Rashad Evans and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson were signed on as the Coaches.

    The war of words between these two came to a head when (then) UFC Light Heavyweight Champion "Sugar" Rashad Evans watched Rampage put away his best friend and longtime training partner Keith Jardine. Rashad entered the cage to confront Rampage not seconds after his hand was raised in victory, and a war of words ensued:

    [​IMG]

    (from the moment the mic gets put between them)

    Rampage: I’m getting that belt back. Rashad, I’m getting that belt back.
    Rashad: You’re getting knocked the **** out. You’re getting knocked the **** out.
    Rampage: I’m not getting knocked out baby. I’m getting that belt back.
    Rashad: You’re getting knocked the **** out.
    Rampage: Think about it, know it, see it.
    Rashad: Knocked out. Okay let’s do it. Let’s do it.
    Rampage: Rampage getting his belt back.
    Rashad: You ain’t getting ****.
    Rampage: See it, Rashad. See it.
    Rashad: You ain’t getting ****. You’re about to walk off crying.
    Rampage: It’s gonna happen. It’s gonna happen.
    Rashad: Crying like a little bitch.
    Rampage: I’ma be a hundred times better than what I was today.
    Rashad: Crying like a bitch.
    Rampage: Watch! Watch! Watch!
    Rashad: You can’t be better. You can’t be better. You can’t be better.
    Rampage: You just saw me fight overtrained because I kept training after my last fight.
    Rashad: (something unclear)
    Rampage: I’m gonna be well rested for your ass.
    Rashad: Ok, we’ll see. We’ll see.
    Rampage: I’ma knock you clean out.
    Rashad: Yea, yea, yea
    Rampage: That’s my belt!
    Rashad: I’ll give you the first punch, motherfucker. I’ll give you the first punch.
    Rampage: Okay!
    Rashad: I’ll give you the first punch.
    Rampage: Don’t say that, Rashad.
    Rashad: I’ll put my ******* hands down!
    Rampage: Don’t say that, Rashad.
    Rashad: I’ll put my hands down.
    Rampage: I don’t want it.
    Rashad: You don’t got ****.
    Rampage: I don’t want it. I want it fair and square.
    Rashad: Okay.
    Rampage: Come yo best baby
    Rashad: I’ma be my best.
    Rampage: Much love
    Rashad: I’ma be my best.
    Rampage grabs the mic:
    Rampage: Get ready, for some Black on Black Crime!!

    With these two personalities as the Coaches there was already a lot of hype surrounding this potentially colorful season of the Ultimate Fighter. The, just a week ago the news hit the internet that UFC President Dana White had secured free agent Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson as a contestant on the show. In fact, what was supposed to be a show featuring 8 Middleweights and 8 Light Heavyweights was instantly changed to a 16 man Heavyweight Season, marking the first time TUF had featured heavyweights since Season 2 in 2005.

    There was a lot of trash talk from White, who has called Kimbo a "joke," a "bum" and "not a real fighter," among other less than kind descriptions. He said that Slice would "get murdered if he fought in the UFC". White also stated that the only way he'd ever let Kimbo into the UFC was by way of the Reality Show "The Ultimate Fighter." It looks like Kimbo took Dana up on that challenge passing up much more lucrative contracts and signed to fight as an amateur for pay amounting to next to nothing. White has suggested that if Kimbo were to win the show that his contract would then be substantial to match Slice's drawing power. "It should be interesting, given some of the things I've said about him," White said.

    There has been a lot of hype surrounding Kimbo foraging into MMA, much of which was derailed with a 14 second TKO loss to journeyman Light Heavyweight Seth Petruzelli. Many folks feel Petruzelli exposed Kimbo's lack of any real MMA skill, but the loss did little to quell the public interest in Slice.
    What is most remarkable is the message Kimbo is sending out to everyone by accepting the challenge to appear on The Ultimate Fighter for little compensation compared to the lucrative offers he'd received from Gary Shaw, Strikeforce, and Japanese Fight Organizations. If anything, this move shows Kimbo's determination to make a real impact on the sport as he has so much to lose and so little to gain with such a move. It will be interesting to see how it pans out. Most "experts" are already predicting an early exit from the Ultimate Fighter show for Slice, we'll just have to wait until September to find out.

    * Kimbo Slice (3-1): The YouTube phenomenon and former Elite XC headliner
    * Roy Nelson (13-4): Former IFL champion
    * Wes Sims (22-12-1): Former UFC fighter
    * Marcus Jones (4-1): Former NFL player
    * Matt Mitrione (0-0): Former NFL player
    * Wes Shivers (N/A): NFL veteran
    * Jim York (10-2): MMA fighter
    * Justin Wren (6-1): NFL player/MMA fighter
    * Mike Wessel (6-1): Former UFC fighter
    * Scott Junk (6-2-1): Former UFC fighter
    * Zak Jensen (7-3): MMA fighter

    * Brendan Schaub (4-0): MMA fighter
    * Jon Madsen (1-0): MMA fighter

    Holy fuck!

    Finally some SERIOUS fucking talent on TUF... There are some awesome fucking names in there..

    Wessel and Schaub are both really good... Christ.. I'm really looking forward to this..

    Too bad Rashad and Rampage will both suck dick as coaches and bring little to the table.. This would be a great season to have AWESOME coaches on. Bring in a Couture and a Renzo or something..

    So over having fighters coach. At least have some serious veterans of the sport come in. BJ and Jens I thought was a great coaching matchup.


    Seems like they finally got athletic heavyweights, not bloated light heavyweights.

    First guess would be that Schaub will take it, but you never know.


    and

    Looks like a decent mix and I'm guessing the guys are all more mature which will mean less bullshit drama.

    Roy Nelson counts as bloated and athetic. :bigthumb:

    Unlike some others, I am absolutely STOKED to see Rampage and Rashad as coaches. Rampage's ability to coach seemed very limited in Season 7, but the TV Entertainment quality with him is going to be nuts. Rashad will probably bring more to the Coaching position, but time will tell. I am hoping that Kimbo gets on Rampage's team, I'd love to see their interaction together as former street fighters going pro to "make bread".

    All in all, this is going to be an entertaining season.

    so basically everyone on rampages team will learn how to pick people up and slam them on the mat.

    and rashad will be teaching everyone how good of a dancer he is

    all of this while kimbo beats up on some people until he fights nelson

    You didn't know? Page never video-taped his fights for the internet, but he was a street fighter. He was always brawling in the streets with others. Wrestling and MMA gave him a way to focus that aggression and get paid doing it.

    Definitely looking forward to this season more than others. Rampage is always entertaining and they look to have a pretty solid crop of Heavyweights.

    I think Roy Nelson wins it all.

    i see this season having much less drama. None of them have little guy complexes, and the NFL players are used to hanging around in tight quarters with other guys as part of a team. Im very interested to see how far kimbo will go.

    it seemed forever like a TUF HW season was doomed to fail, just like TUF season 2 did, I think this should be entertaining though

    having guys like Roy and Wes means it will be fun to watch

    I heard that Sims was just pulling people's chains. He said several statements about how Kimbo went nuts and left.
