Chris Cope was sometimes considered a “double-agent” on “The Ultimate Fighter.” On Saturday night at the TUF 13 Finale, he had to fight a guy that he considers a friend. None of it was easy, but it’s all part of the job, according to Cope.

“It’s hard fighting a friend, but at the same time, it’s part of the show,” Cope told reporters after the fight on Saturday night, talking at length about how people saw him on the show and how things went down between him and Chuck O’Neil when they found out they had to fight each other.
