(Courtesy of UFC)

It didn’t take long for tensions to reach a boiling point on the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption. Following a few terse words, UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt, one of the coaches on the show, latched onto fellow coach and former teammate TJ Dillashaw‘s throat, forcing their fighters and assistant coaches to jump in and break things up.

    The more I see of Garbrandt the less I like him.

    • Lee-Ho-Fong

      This is the first time I will be pulling for Dillashaw.

      • George Sperry

        Same

  • Sebastien Dubois

    Cosy Gaybrandt has is closing in on McGregor’s title of Biggest Self-Entitled Bellend in the UFC. What an absolute tool. T.J. should sue him for assault and THEN whup him in the octagon

  • Lance

    Cheap shot by Cody. Good thing he had all those red team members surrounding/protecting him. Wish they would have stepped in the octagon right then.

  • TheHendryx

    Cody may be a good fighter, but he’s one of the most mentally weak people I’ve seen in the UFC.

    KINDA OF A DOUCHE BAG..HEY GROW THE FUCKUP…MR,BADASS

  • Sir_Roy

    Exciting fighter, but the more I see of this guy, the more I understand his need for the neck tats, and the less I care for him. Wears his heart on his sleeve to the extent he’s turning out to be a real class A douchebag.

    In the real world, that right there is called assault. He doesn’t get his act together and stop being so thin skinned, he’s going to end up with charges he won’t be able to shake. Courts are none too lenient on professional fighters who resolve their issues with their fists.

    • MikeMcK

      They’re just acting their size. This kind of thing happens on elementary school playgrounds all the time. No biggie.

      • Sir_Roy

        I don’t know … an obviously insecure man with an inflated ego acting like an emotional child like that, and with those level of skills, is like letting an adolescent run around with a loaded gun.

        Just trouble waiting to happen.

    • Leonard Harris

      dont you mean triple A Douchebag… seriously guy barely got the belt and he is allready talking about chasing the belt in other weight classes…there is a line between Confidence and Arrogance and he pissed all over it

  • Paul Benvin

    The entire red team is comprised of nothing but classless, chest-bumping, dude-bro douche bags. The asinine neck and head tattoos exemplify that. And they’re being lead by someone who very clearly suffers from a severe case of penis envy. Jesus, this show never ceases to amaze me. If the new owners are interested in improving the overall image of MMA and moving it even further into the mainstream then they might want to sit down and come to some sort of a decision regarding the future of TUF. Like, you know, killing it altogether and utilizing one of the lower UFC-owned promotions as a farm team of sorts with an eye toward developing up-and-coming talent.

    And for f— sake, tell the more high-profile fighters to behave like professionals as opposed to petulant little kids.

    • George Sperry

      You know by watching it you give the UFC reason not to cancel the show right?

      • Paul Benvin

        Haven’t watched a season since the first one. My observations were made after seeing the above clip.

        Head tats? Ferchrissakes.

  • TheCerealKiller

    This is why I don’t like getting to know fighters. I just want to see him fight without caring if he’s a total douchebag.

  • Stan

    Young man hasnt been famous long. He’s not even a Millionaire yet. He’s on a hair trigger and its just a matter of time before a fan flips his switch and his short career is over. By 2020 he’ll be forgotten and be nothing more than a wikepedia page….

    “I don’t know … an obviously insecure man with an inflated ego acting like an emotional child like that, and with those level of skills, is like letting an adolescent run around with a loaded gun.

    Just trouble waiting to happen.”

    Sounds like a certain orange conman/fake politician whose name rhymes with dump.

    • Sir_Roy

      Minus any level of skill whatsoever then yeah … it does.

  • John Youwer

    This show has been a joke for years, pretty much like the UFC has been a joke for years. Guess I miss the good old days of the UFC. Can barely stand to watch it anymore.

  • George A Pappas

    More proof mma has no class and is a disgrace to the martial art spirit.
