UFC bantamweight Urijah Faber spoke with Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com about why former head coach of Team Alpha Male Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig will not be cornering him, but will still corner Chad Mendes.
“He is still a part of the team. He is still working out with some of the guys. I think it is going to be a couple of months before he gets his own building. Until then, he is at the gym hanging out.
“I’ve seen the guy for the last year and a half everyday. He never left. We interact all the time”
Faber then narrowed in on the question burning in everyone’s mind. Why isn’t he having Bang corner him?
“People wondered a bunch about that. It really comes down to the way I was treated by him. It had a lot to do with money and the idea of things that in my mind weren’t true but he kinda conjured up in his mind. I don’t really like to be be in contact with people that rub me the wrong way and that is kind if what happened.”
