Former Team Alpha Male coach Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig has apologized for his comments regarding the team. Ludwig did an interview, prior to TJ Dillashaw’s win at UFC on FOX 16, and said that no one else on the team wants to be champion except TJ.
On The MMA Hour Ludwig wanted to say sorry and clarify his thoughts a little bit.
“I love you guys. Sorry for being stupid.”
“I say some stupid stuff sometimes. And they’re training at their full potential. T.J. just really wants it. If you look at it in comparison, there’s a difference. If someone is training a certain way — and not just coming out to Colorado — it’s the focus and the intensity and the desire in the room. You can just see it, you can feel it. And it’s just different with T.J.
“They train their butts off and for me to say they don’t want to be champ, that’s not fair. That’s not actually true. T.J. just puts in a little extra effort, a bit more focus and a bit more desire. That’s what I see and that’s what I was truly meaning, not to discredit anybody.”
