    Sounds like Urijah likes to be the only boss.

    "former UFC welterweight contender Martin Kampmann will be brought in to fill Ludwig's role in the interim"

    Not a bad choice at all.

    Sounds to me that Ludwig wasn't a yes man and was actually trying to do his job and help win fights! Nothing wrong with passion, atleast you know he cared to win.

    I agree Urijah shouldve just kept that private as ot seems like hes trying to make duane look bad considering he said it was an amicable parting.

    Didn't sound negative to me. Vouched for his coaching ability. Said he wanted someone permanent. Duan was talking about starting his own gym soon after he got the gig.

    its called bipolar. Used to be manic depressant. If you've ever watched a 2 minute video on bang you realize this fairly quick.

    If Kampmann becomes the head coach we are not likely going to see him again fight soon.

    Seemed fine to me. Didn't reveal anything personal, just said that Duane is a passionate guy and there was friction sometimes. Put a positive spin on something that people were largely viewing as a negative for the team (Bang leaving). He praised Bang's skills too. Pretty diplomatic answer if you ask me.

    If you've ever heard Bang speak then it shouldn't be a surprise that hes a high strung, emotional guy.
