You MIGHHHHT be able to make that argument if you could prove that he's ever collected such a fee. I doubt that's possible and arguable about him exploiting MMA if he did. I don't see anyone saying that about Bas Rutten or Randy Couture and if you take a look at thier new site you'll see some outrageous "deals". These guys are hot for only a moment and they are responsible for feeding their families and financing their kid's educations. Who's to say what is exploitive? you could say some numbnut coming out of the woodwork to waste an hour of thieir time(when they were trying to figger out where they were gonna eat or how they were gonna put their kids thru school), exploitive. if you had a choice you'd tell em to fuck off ... OR charge the hell outta them and kill two birds with one stone!

The guy probably has too many requests for private lessons, so he has to bump up the price so people stop hounding him left and right to teach them. Its all supply and demand. When you don't have enough supply and too much demand you jack up the price ala PS3. It's what any sensible business guy would do. So don't call it a rip off because if you dont like it, then don't pay up.

In Holland we pay for kickboxing in the top gyms around 50 euro/dollar a month. That's why we have so many top guys in kickboxing. In Brazil they do the same with BJJ. When they would make the top MMA gyms cheaper in the USA, you improve the number of great MMA fighters.

The real moron here is someone who pays 25k to this Irvin guy who has never fought professionally in any MMA event and fall for his unproven MMA system....

rip offs exist every part of business sector. you just need to be a well educated consumer.
this aint no different here.

You have people like Bas Rutten, Pat militich, etc but decides to pay 25k hr to Irvin dude is a f***king imbecile...

Irvin is laughing all the way to the bank...
