    How come this guy talked so much shit about Duane (said shit like Duane would be nothing without TAM and TAM made him who he is and etc...) and then move to Colorado to train with him?

    Could Master Thong really be that bad?

    Because he realizes Duane is legit and when he gets back, it is going to be in his own best interest to have Duane in his corner.

    Snakes shed their skins so easily. He learnt from TJ.

    lol wtf, do people actually believe that?
     
  8. No surprise. Chad reinvented himself after the first aldo fight and he said Duane played a massive part in improving his stand up game.

    Plus Chad likes to Hunt. Makes sense to move there.

    idk dog, i just feel like it would be extremely awkward for someone to try to befriend someone that they talked so much shit about

  10. I must admit I haven't really heard much from mendes. I thought he kept pretty quiet during the whole thing.

    Only cody stuck out to me as being 100% behind faber (the other duds don't count).

    Good for him. I hope he returns. He just needs to lay off the hand cream.

    Yeah, he did. Duane helped him a lot. He really didn't have anything to do with Faber and Bang's feud any way. No one did.


    <{hughesimpress}>TS, you are a complete slob for saying all of that having obviously not paid any attention to any of that situation. Chad always remained neutral for the most part, and remained loyal to Faber as he should. He never went out trashing Ludwig left and right. Why wouldn't he want to train with Ludwig still if he had great chemistry with him?

    I haven't seen him with Duane since Duane left Alpha male. Did I miss some news?

    Maybe two adults spoke to each other and worked things out.

    Chad stayed neutral, and he's still repping TAM as far as I know.
