James Krause knows how to get even.
Krause caught up with Fightful ahead of his short-notice fight at UFC Fight Island 6. The ultra-active competitor reflected on his time as part of Stipe Miocic's coaching team on The Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated" in 2018.
"Have you ever met Gian Villante?" Krause asked. "Anytime I interact with him, he's one of the fattest, sloppiest people I've ever met in my life. He's hilarious though. Really good dude. Hilarious human being. He's an absolute shit show and it's fun to watch."
"I was a part of Stipe's team coaching The Ultimate Fighter and Villante was a part of that too. He would go get trashed every night," Krause continued. "In Vegas, they rent this big ass Airbnb for us. It's like a mansion. It's huge. There's a movie theatre in the basement. Villante decided he was going to grab a mattress all the way from the top and move it to the basement. He did something that pissed me off. I kept getting shotgun because I always got up earlier than him, so one day he put water in my seat. I went out back and grabbed a bucket full of rocks and threw it in his bed and I covered it up. He came home from a hard night's practice. He was super tired. He went over to his bed and he was going to lay down in his bed and there was just a whole bed full of rocks in there. It was one of my better pranks."
