Brock Lesnar will coach on the new season of The Ultimate Fighter.
UFC President Dana White announced moments ago that Brock Lesnar will be one of the coaches on the upcoming season of "The Ultimate Fighter" on Spike TV.

Lesnar, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion and University of Minnesota wrestling standout, is famously reclusive, which makes his decision to do a reality TV show somewhat of a surprise.

Even White is unsure what to expect from Lesnar when he's cooped up and on camera.

Brock Lesnar: Not the guy you want to have as a coach if you don't like pain.
"It was tough getting Lesnar to commit," White said. "I'm preparing for a tough season. It's going to be an interesting six weeks of filming."

Lesnar's rival coach in season 13 will be Junior dos Santos, one of the top heavyweight contenders. Current UFC Heavyweight Champ Cain Valasquez beat Brock for the belt, but has been sidelined with a shoulder injury.

That means a fight between Lesnar and dos Santos at the end of the season will crown the No. 1 contender for the strap.

Here's the audio of the press phone call. It starts with the announcement of the coaches.

So let me get this straight..... Dos Santos has a shot for the title and all of a sudden he has to earn that right again. Think UFC should be treating there contenders with abit more respect. Lesnar is Dos santos's perfect matchup. He'll stuff his takedowns and pummle lesnar to a TKO. Way to quick for Lesnar. It will be punishment. Get rid of the beard this time Lesnar. Its your Omen!!!!!

It's going to be a good one. Everyone will have an opinion on who will win or lose, but to say Brock will get K.Oed is sort of....dumb. Anything can and will happen in MMA. Good luck to both Brock and Junior! Thank you for entertaining the fans, no matter how fickle they are.

Silly "fickle" fans.Why do all MMA fans think they know so much? Are you fighting in the cage?Can you take a shot?Stop being so ...goonie. Just enjoy the fights and quit acting like you are the be-all and know-all of the MMA world. It's embarassing!.
