    LOL @ how bias you are with this assessment, a major part of a coach's job is to instill discipline. Granted the team May have already had good discipline and punctuality but he has to make sure standards don't start slipping.

    The reason Bang gets so much credit is because of Rogan's commentary.

    TAM were great before and they are improving also because they are doing it longer and getting more experience with striking.

    They just happened to finally get a UFC champ which was probably bound to happen at some point because of how many title shots they are getting.

    You sure it's not cause TAM went on that crazy win streak, and after every win they all praised Ludwig. They only lost two fights since Ludwigs arrival & both of those were title fights.

    They have always been winners except in UFC title fights and they used to say the same things about that sleeve-less Asian guy with the gambling problem.

    Fair enough.

    But I just can't grasp for the life of me how an average at best career MMA fighter with rudimentary looking Muay Thai/Kickboxing can translate well as an apt coach. Go figure.

    why is that 'master toddy' not wearing a t-shirt while he's holding pads?

    he comes across as a big show off......during ufc events he has this ridiculous sun glasses on........he just comes across as a total douche

    This. Was Alpha Male a shit hole before Bang came?

    It was, after all, kind of a contingency thing when Master T went M.I.A.

    Urijah seems to show weaknesses in his game from adrenaline, he over commits - TJ does too, against Barao he stumbled several times, because he was dominating it didn't matter so much but if someone can time that, its lights out.

    Urijah is a hard worker in the gym but also laid back. Ludwig has his own personality for sure. Watch one of his interviews, I can see why someone working with him could have an issue.

    In a recent interview Faber said he didn't know Duane was planning on leaving and opening his own gym until he heard it from other people. He said he wanted Duane to be there for the newer guys too and implied that he mainly just trains the top guys and doesn't work too much with the newer (amateur fighters and guys just starting out?). guys.

    I think people are looking too much into it with the whole "Faber is just jealous because he didn't win the belt," thing. Team Alpha Male is his product, if a coach is not committing long term then it's not in his best interest to keep him as a head coach.

    Did Faber really get into the back of that SUV without a car seat?

    I don't know how anyone could think Urijah Faber is anything other than a self-absorbed toolbag who has had it too easy. The stuff he says about always being popular and being fed "the best stuff on Earth" since he was a kid... gah! Makes we wanna puke.

    But then again, society tends to worship people like that. So maybe it's not that surprising.

    OT but is it just me or was anybody else thinking of the Dennis Green NFL meltdown when reading this thread?

    LMFAO!!
