Team Alpha Male celebrates. (USA Today Sports Images)At UFC on Fox 7, Chad Mendes knocked out Darren Elkins in 1:08. Joseph Benavidez finished off a blistering performance against Darren Uyenoyama with a TKO ate the end of the second round. T.J. Dillashaw won with a TKO over Hugo Viana in the first round.
What do these fighters have in common? They all fight for Team Alpha Male, the camp headed by UFC veteran and former WEC champ Urijah Faber. Throw in that Faber has two submission wins in two months, and 2013 has been very good to the Team Alpha Males.
But what is it that has pushed these men to such a win streak? Take a look in their corner. The newest addition is UFC veteran Duane Ludwig, who is recovering from a knee injury and a tough, three-loss run in the UFC. He started with Team Alpha Male early this year, and has clearly made a difference.
Dillashaw said Ludwig's role of head trainer has helped develop the talent that was already in their camp.Read More »from Team Alpha Male fighters take huge leap forward at UFC on Fox 7 with Duane Ludwig’s help
