If you were listening closely during last night’s episode of "The Ultimate Fighter," you might have heard Team Rampage assistant coach Tiki Ghosn commiserating in the locker room with a frustrated "Rampage" Jackson after yet another loss. Tiki doesn’t exactly seem like he’s in the kind of friendship with Jackson that would allow him to question the coaching strategies that led them to this point, so instead he joined in on the bitch session by throwing his hands up and saying, "We can’t fight for them."
That’s true. The only problem is, Tiki has never won a fight in the UFC. Not once in his eleven-year, 11-7 career. He’s had four fights in the Octagon and lost them all. He’s never even made it into the third round of a UFC fight, if we want to get technical. That’s not to say that he necessarily sucks. He did beat pop sensation Genki Sudo in his pro debut, and he’s currently riding a two-fight win streak. But lest Tiki be allowed to go around disparaging the abilities of the Team Rampage UFC hopefuls as if he’s some kind of future hall of famer, we thought a little Tiki Ghosn career primer was in order. Enjoy.
