Urijah Faber: ‘Duane Ludwig Leaving Is A Breath Of Fresh Air’

By BJPENN.COM News - May 20, 2014

“Duane did a great job running his practice and he’s passionate about his stuff. We implemented a lot of his drills during our set practices and it turned out great. But he was a little difficult to deal with here and there,” Faber said. “And so actually it’s kind of a breath of fresh air to have parted ways.

“And actually, since we made this announcement of him leaving, it’s been the smoothest between he and I, in the business side of things, since he’s been here.”

“You know what, Duane’s a real emotional guy. So sometimes he’s really, really happy, like excited, screaming around. Sometimes he’s real serious. Sometimes he’s emotional; he’s been to tears in practice talking about things he’s passionate about and talking to guys.

“So there was some friction here and there, but it was just very short-lived and kind of confusing, to be honest. Kind of friction, but then, like, not friction, so kind of up and down.”

In a recent interview with ‘The MMA Hour’, Team Alpha Male founder Urijah Faber discusses the upcoming departure of Duane Ludwig from the training regime at the team’s gym.

Ludwig will be officially removed from the team as of TJ Dillashaw’s title fight this weekend on pay-per-view.
