Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig is transitioning out of his fighting career quite well as the new striking coach of Team Alpha Male. Urijah Faber’s camp is best known for its Energizer Bunny wrasslin’ style, but since Bang arrived their striking has become something you really gotta watch out for too. He hasn’t just taught these guys better technique – he gameplans their striking, and he does it in a pretty interesting way:
When I watch film, I watch film normal how I am now. Then I watch film when I’m high on marijuana. I also watch the film again when I have Alpha Brain in my system. I watch film from three different states of consciousness just to get different looks at things. Just to see if maybe I missed a step or a nice little detail just to get different looks on things. I take this serious as hell.”
Ah, the MMA world. Where taking things seriously means smoking a bunch of weed.
