Ludwig named new head coach of Faber's Team Alpha Male

by Mike Whitman | source:

UFC welterweight Duane Ludwig has been named the new head coach of Team Alpha Male.

“It’s flattering to have the request and good timing, as I’ll be out for at least a year,” Ludwig recently told “With that said, chances lead toward me stepping away from the actual fighting and starting to train the next generation. To be given a team like Alpha Male is a coach’s dream. The work ethic of great wrestlers with a more Dutch style of kickboxing, such as mine, is going to be fun to watch. Everyone at Alpha Male is already a great and successful mixed martial artist, so this can only get better.”

Founded in 2004 by ex-World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight champ Urijah Faber, Team Alpha Male primarily trains out of Ultimate Fitness in Sacramento, Calif. In addition to “The California Kid,” the team also houses two more former UFC title challengers in Chad Mendes and Joseph Benavidez, as well as “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 14 runner-up T.J. Dillashaw.

Bang on JRE last week was gold! You can hear the excitement in his voice each time technique or his fighters came up. I think he was a great fighter but his coaching is on another level and I think we may be talking one of the coaching goats before it is said an done. Also his fighters are 16-0 because he got high, because he got high! He mentions watching tape in three different states of mind.
