No love lost between “TUF 10” coaches Mike van Arsdale and Tiki Ghosn

In a recent appearance on MMAjunkie.com Radio, Mike van Arsdale revealed his feelings on fellow TUF 10 assistant coach Tiki Ghosn:

“He’s one of two people in this earth that I would beat up just for the fun of it,” van Arsdale said. “Hopefully, he’ll come around and make the mistake of signing up.”

“When you call a guy out like that, you don’t ask him to cut 30 pounds,” van Arsdale said. “He’s the one asking me to fight and I’m like, ‘OK,’ … but then he asked me to cut a lot of weight, to come down to like 180 (pounds), and I’m like 210 (pounds).”

“I’m like, ‘No way. I might meet you at 195, but that’s it.'”
“First of all, the whole story is (that) van Arsdale got mad because I kept picking on him because we found out he’s a cross-dresser,” Ghosn told MMAjunkie.com. “So he got so booty-hurt that he called me out to fight.

“So I said, ‘Alright, let’s fight.’ He said, ‘Let’s box after the show.’ I said, ‘[Expletive] sparring; why do you want to spar me? I’m a Thai boxer; you’re going to get your ass kicked. Why don’t we just fight MMA so you have a chance?’ So van Arsdale says, ‘OK, let’s do that.'”

“I weigh 183 pounds,” Ghosn said. “I said, ‘Can you get down [to 185 pounds]?’ He was already going down to 185. He said he can’t do 185 after I’ve heard from his whole camp that he’s trying to lean out and do 185.

“He decided to get cold feet when I called him out.”

“I’d fight him on the drop of a dime, but he won’t do it,” van Arsdale said. “I don’t know what’s wrong with that guy, man.”.

“He was talking shit about me on the other blog saying I was fat,” Ghosn said. “Yeah, I’m fat. I’m trying to come up in weight to fight you because you’re too big of a pussy to cut the weight.

“The ball’s in his court. If he gets enough time and actually trains, maybe he can cut the weight. Maybe he needs to quit dressing like a chick and putting on makeup and we can get something going.”
