Duane Ludwig is knowledgeable, talented, and very hard to keep up with.
After TJ Dillashaw overcame 7-to-1 odds and not only beat but crushed Renan Barao to win the UFC bantamweight title, I sat down to talk to his coach, Duane "Bang" Ludwig, himself a veteran of the UFC and K-1.
Ludwig talks about turning the Alpha Male crew into martial artists rather than just athletes, and explains the difference between the two. He goes into detail regarding his system, Bang Muay Thai, and what sets it above the rest of the riff-raff in MMA. He is proud of his fighters, unashamed of claiming credit for some of their successes, and a hell of an interview. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.
