Frankie Edgar Reveals His Coaching Team for The Ultimate Fighter

Frankie Edgar is fresh off of the recording of the next season of The Ultimate Fighter where both him and BJ Penn will be coaches before they clash in a Feathwerweight contest, building upon their already-storied history. After this last season of The Ultimate Fighter, which focused heavily on trying to manufacture drama between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate there are a lot of questions as to the direction that the UFC and Fox Sports producers will move towards for The Ultimate Fighter 19, but with a personality like Frankie Edgar, it’ll probably be difficult to get much more than mumbles out of him.

What we can expect is for Frankie Edgar to bring in a lot of his friends and training partners, many of which you’ll be familiar with, into the show. BloodyElbow spoke with him after a wrestling competition this weekend and he discussed who he brought onto the show. [link]

“I brought the guys I work with every day and believe in. I brought in Mark Henry, Ricardo Almeida, Renzo Gracie, Anderson Franca, and some of my teammates, Marlon Moraes, Edson Barboza, and Akira Corassani, so I just brought the guys I work with on a daily basis.”
