    Didn't see anyone mention this but Dillashaw losing marked the first Team Alpha Male loss since Duane Ludwig took over as coach..

    Does anyone have the official winning streak number?

    I bet Team alpha male would still have their streak without Ludwig. He's not the reason for the streak.

    But people need reasons.

    Yup. And since this is Sherdog, I wouldn't be surprise if there are guys who will somehow find a way to contribute all 17 wins to Ludwig retroactively to be honest.

    It was a close fight so I won't cry robbery, but I thought Dillashaw won.

    Almost everyone thought that TJ won it though.

    This controversial loss will probably help the team not worry about being first guy to snap the streak even though it probably didn't matter. I see more of them losing in the future anyways especially Joe B to MM.

    I don't know, each of them have really improved striking. I don't know if it is because of Ludwig, but once he arrived, all of their next fights ended in slick striking that concluded in KO's.

    That's a pretty good coincidence that a world class kickboxer takes over as their head coach and then all of a sudden they are using great angles and movement and knocking guys the fuck out.

    Especially Mendes, he didn't ever have as crisp a striking as he does now. I don't even remember him knocking anyone out before that.

    I'm assuming this only counts Alpha Males in the UFC, right?
