    I know we all love to hate Edmond, but I do believe he is a pretty legit coach. He keeps bringing in very solid fighters. I was impressed by Baghdasaryan. We know Shahbazyan is pretty good too.

    Seems like Glendale Fighting Club isn’t such a shitty gym after all.

    Tarverdyan bless.

    I think he keeps getting lucky w fighters who are already really talented. He doesn't add much to them. It starts showing when they start fighting higher competition. That's why Shabazian (Sp) has been training at AKA and even going to Dagestan to train w Khabib and the boys iirc. Edmundo can only take them so far.

    to be fair though, I reckon every single fighter on the roster would greatly benefit from training with the Dagestani and Chechen crew.

    Edmond provides opportunity to already talented and skilled Armenian fighters

    well, he is primarily a striking coach, so his gym must have limitations on good wrestlers & grapplers. he is mostly coaching armenian kids, but he is not as bad as people make him out here just because he knows kung fu.

    Edmond is very thankful that Josh Fabian came along.

    I'm not sure anyone under Edmond really ever beats any ranked opponents... Aside from Ronda of course

    He hit the jackpot when Ronda walked through the door.

    There was always bound to be some number of talented fighters who gravitated towards his gym based on that alone.

    Maybe he should focus on finding the talent and not train them.
    Get a kick back from a real gym. Win win

    I feel like guys like you who defend him just don't know enough about him

    I have done a day at his gym before and he is very knowledgeable regarding striking. He is not the POS that Ronda’s mom paints him to be. Edmen, his bro, Melsik spent most of their time training under him but also cross train at other gyms in the area.

    They all start looking great with Ed. Travis Browne moved like a heavyweight Dominick Cruz, Ronda judo flipping bitches left and right, Shahbazyan a promising prospect.




    Then without fail Ed fucks it up and they either stagnate or degenerate.

    He gets gifted all the Armenians in California from a young age. The talent in the gym develops them, Edmond ruins them till they have to leave to continue their growth
