    Looks like Myles Jury, Michael Chandler, Jonny Case and some others are leaving for Power MMA. I thought Eric Del Fiero is considered by many to on of the best coaches around, and has helped guys like Dominic Cruz and Gustafson. And who does Power MMA have besides Bader and Dolloway? Also a side note, why would anyone leave San Diego for Arizona?

    Gus lost to rumble. Jury loses to Cerrone. Chandler loses to WIll brooks. I think they wanted a change to their game plan so they change camps.

    There fighters haven't had much success between 2014/2015 they want to switch things up and see new faces to train with. Also different coaches may teach things differently not just technique wise but mentally as well.

    Never hurts to switch it up, but yeah Del Fiero seems like an excellent all around coach so it is a bit of a head-scratcher.

    Like other posters have said, they may just want to switch things up a bit. Some fighters work well with certain coaches.

    Truth is recently the work coming out of Alliance MMA hasn't been that good and a lot of the fighters have plateaued as strikers.
