    “I would probably be in jail right now," says Andre Fili, "if it wasn’t for Team Alpha Male. I was on house arrest when I got to Team Alpha Male. It’s not hard to draw a conclusion where I would be without this team.”

    “I’d be in jail for sure. I have no question,” Fili said. “I’d either be in jail or I’d be getting out of a jail working some deadbeat job. If you talk to Faber, he’ll tell the opposite. I’ve said that to Faber before, 'You basically saved my life.'

    “He’s just like, ‘F*ck off! You would have figured it out without me.’ It’s true. He won’t admit it but that motherf*cker saved my life. Him and the rest of the team.”


    “Fili is a unique kid,” Faber said when speaking to MMA Fighting. “When you look at a kid like that, he’s always thought big, which is the most important thing. He believes he can and he has a lot of self-confidence, and isn’t afraid to think big, and train big.

    “We actually have an award, which he won for our team banquet, the ‘think big’ award. Because he’s not afraid to put the work in. He’s not afraid to verbalize it. He’s not worried about what people think. I always appreciate that. He’s a real asset to this team. It’s been cool to see him grow as an individual.

    “It’s easy for him to say that [I saved him] because he has a lot of friends who are dead. Friends who are in jail,” Faber said. “He’s seen just little decisions take guys with so much potential and put them down the wrong road. When he always says he couldn’t have done it without me or without the team, I really do believe that he would have done some good stuff.

    “I think being around an environment that is inspiring and like-minded and getting in the right direction is a big part of people’s success. There is probably some truth to him being in a little more trouble or a little less far along as an athlete, or maybe not even figuring out he was doing the right things because he didn’t have an example. I think he’s got a driven spirit, which always finds some sort of success.”

    Good for Fili that he was able to find a positive outlet in his life. Props to him and Faber, I’ve heard really good things about the guy outside the cage.

    However I myself have always really disliked Fili and his over the top hipster bro attitude and actively root against him.
