Who you will be rooting for on TUF 16, Roy Nelson or Shane Carwin?
Less than two months ago, Ultimate Fighting Championship announced Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin as coaches for the 16th installment of The Ultimate Fighter. Since then, the pair exchanged some heated words, with Roy Nelson’s “average guy” gimmick being the center of attention.
Carwin accused Roy Nelson of not taking his job seriously, while Nelson used sarcasm as his weapon of choice on Twitter. Today, Shane Carwin once again criticized Roy Nelson (mmaweekly.com), claiming that he’s the one who should be considered as “the average guy”. According to Carwin, Roy Nelson has never had a normal job in his life:
“I think the other tension is that I am this average guy and I’ve worked my ass off to get to where I’m at, and I started working when I was 15, my mom raised three boys on her own and we were very poor and I grew up working construction and concrete work, and threw boxes at the beef plant, I did everything just to try to survive.
He plays this like he’s this average guy and honestly I don’t think the guy’s ever had a normal job.”
TUF 16 debuts on September 14th at 9PM, and will be aired on Fridays. Both coaches will have a strong secondary coaching staff to help their ambitions. Shane Carwin will use the services of Nate Marquardt for BJJ, Pat Barry and Duane Ludwig for kickboxing, and Trevor Wittman for pure boxing. Roy Nelson will have Nick and Nate Diaz accompanied by Strikeforce 155 champ Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez.
