How legit is Javier Mendez ? Is he really responsible for his fighters success or is it more of a case of iron sharpens iron at AKA? Reason I ask is because it seems like khabib, DC, and Cain mostly rely on their wrestling pressure to win and khabibs striking particularly doesn’t look like it improved THAT much over the years.. Also Luke sufferered 2 ko losses in his last few fights his hands and defence looked like shit and he switched to hooft he is supposed to be great striking coach ( questionable ) Other guys who trained there like Koscheck also had terrible striking, and if you bring up BJ- here is a guy who is learns unusually fast hence his 3 year path to Bjj black belt. Also his corner advice seems pretty generic. Him telling khabib “ Cain Valesques style” and khabib barely paying attention. It was his brother or cousin who told him to stop boxing in Russian after the 3rd.
