Urijah Faber Says TUF Brought Out Ludwig Beef

(UFC bantamweight and Team Alpha Male founder Urijah Faber weighs in)

Urijah Faber and Duane Ludwig were once teammates and comrades, however recent accusations surfaced of Faber calling Duane, greedy, homophobic, racist and even a bully. It seems now that fans will be able to witness what Faber has been talking about on future episodes of The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs Team Faber. What’s kind of baffling is of all people to point a finger at something, it was Conor that noticed a weird occurrence involving Ludwig, read all about Uriah’s MMA Hour interview here:

“The most important thing about a fighter’s mentality and being successful is self-belief,” Faber said Monday after walking through the timeline of events on The MMA Hour. “My brother was in a cult and it altered his life forever. I understand about abusive relationships. I understand about pimps and hoes, man. This is the way it is. When you have somebody who’s trying to make people believe that you can’t do things without them and create a dependency, that’s unhealthy.

“And when he starts coming public saying ignorant things about my team, which has a bunch of future champions like Cody Garbrandt and Paige VanZant, Andrei Fili and Joseph Morales and Angelo Trevino, some guys who Duane probably doesn’t even know their names because they didn’t pay him any money, that becomes offensive to me. On top of that, it’s going to come out of this reality show. You’re going to see, because Conor (McGregor) picked up right away when Duane started making comments about ‘no one is a champion on our team except for T.J.’

“Conor picked up that Duane had been talking a bunch of crap about our team and was like, ‘dude, what’s up with that?'” Faber continued. “And it ended up being a confrontation on the show, which you guys are going to see. Then Duane, while he’s coaching T.J. and Danny (Castillo), makes a comment to just slander our team. Then on top of that he does this apology which is basically just talking crap about me, and because he says the word ‘apology’ doesn’t make it an apology, and he says a bunch of false things in his apology. So I’m like, dude, I tried to let this guy just go and be on his way, but dysfunction just finds this guy.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
