Kavanagh says he is a 'training partner'
or three, I might add
Don't worry, I sorted it out.
They weren't arguing
John was correcting Luke.
Using Luke's logic:
Artem Lobov is Conor's boxing coach.
Leave Luke alone.
He's a jacked white boy.
Nate Diaz is bigger than Luke, bro. He isn't that big... just a small welterweight.
Kavanagh is spot on, he was brought in to roll with and help Conor prepare for a specific style of BJJ, but he gelled so he's stayed a part of the team.
It's no different from when Conor brought in a bunch of tall boxers to replicate Nate... They didn't suddenly become his striking coaches.
John is a confirmed KKK dragon
More interested in Rumble's post tbh
Kavanagh feels like his position is being threatened!
Settle this in the octagon, nerds.
UFC 208 Vengeance: Kavanagh vs Thomas
Give Thomas a USADA exemption and we can make this happen
Did Puke Thomas call Kavanagh a racist?
John seems like a turd.
Dillon is clearly a training partner. Dillon was right beside Conor during drills, sparring and even doing cardio beside him during camp. The whole "coach" thing started with Alvarez blurting it out at the conference.
Now, whether Dillon should be Conor's BJJ coach is a more pertinent issue. I think John is very good for Conor and still teaches him, but I'd also guess that Dillon can make Conor a better grappler than John can. I think John is more there to counter-balance Conor and keep him in line.
Warning: #REDPILL alert incoming...
I'm faaaaar from a Luke Thomas supporter, BUT he's right on this one.
Artem Lobov merely serves as a sparring body, i.e. A nice term for "punching bag".
Whereas Dilon Danis was hired to TEACH Connie BJJ, particularly his mediocre submission defense.
It's clear as day. Kavanaughs ego just won't let him come to terms with the fact that his BJJ creds/coaching just aren't up to par at that level of the game.
Lol Kavanagh was clearly gotten to by Eddie asking why Conor has 2 jitz coaches.
No consolation for Eddie but clearly still affecting Kav
Like I told Luke on Twitter,
A sparring partner can help clean up your technique but that still doesn't make him your coach.
Luke agreed with me too.
Luke is mma's official pseudo intellectual troll. The guy probably wishes he had more of a hand in mma than a "journalist" or "analyst". I've seen Sherdoggers analyze and characterize fighters and fights better than this asshole, it's amazing he has a little following on the internet. He ruins the mma beat, over talks, over shouts, and gives snide looks to the guys who disagree with him. It's Luke is right and everyone else is wrong. He brags too much, brings up politics when it isn't needed, and always says people who don't like Jon Jones are racists. There is no way I could sit through an hour and forty five minutes of his ramblings, his constant sneezing and coughing, or watching him suck down a diet soda. I do my own research and draw my own conclusions, I don't need this asshole breaking everything down into pieces for me like I'm a petulant child that he believes all his listeners are.
Dillon is good enough to be considered a coach.
Separate names with a comma.
