Kyle Noke Says TUF: Nations Is About Fighters, Not Coach Rivalry
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.07.2014



Kyle Noke recently spoke with MMAjunkie about the end of TUF Nations, which wraps up in a couple of weeks. Check out the highlights:

On not getting into it too much with rival coach Patrick Cote: "I think me and Patrick both had the same idea going into the show that we're going to make it about the fighters and not about us. We never had any beef between us the whole time, and I think we did a good job of making it about the fighters."

On the competitive streak between the two: "There's no rivalry at all, really, but if you're going to put two countries against each other, they're going to compete, so whether they like each other or hate each other, it's country vs. country."

On the Australian vs. Canadian theme: "It definitely motivated me more, just the country versus country aspect of this Ultimate Fighter. It puts a little more pressure on me, but I think the pressure is a privilege. It makes me work harder and train harder, so I'm excited to get in there and fight Patrick. Watching all these guys fight was motivating for me."

On fighting at welterweight: "I feel just as big as I was at middleweight, so now, I'm stronger and faster."

On Cote: "I think he's probably he's in the best shape he's been. He was bad at 205 (pounds). That wasn't his weight class, 185 is a little bit closer, and I think now at 170, he's now at his weight class. I think he's ready to make the best run he can."
