This week on All Things MMA we’re joined by American Kickboxing Academy head coach Javier Mendez.
From the early days of AKA to training multiple UFC champions, fight camps during Covid-19 restrictions and the future of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, there’s plenty to talk about this week.
Javier joins us live from Abu Dhabi where he’s currently stationed with a number of Khabib’s Eagles MMA teammates and where the sport is able to continue freely.
Having joined us last week for a chat about all things Team Ryano, Andy Ryan jumps in for a chat and to share his thoughts on Khabib’s possible/permanent retirement and lessons learned coaching a pro MMA team.
As always, I’m joined by Kilkenny-based pro fighter Myles Price, take a listen above to hear how we got on.
All things MMA takes a break next week but returns on Thursday 10 December when we’re joined by Bellator welterweight Kyle Crutchmer live from California.
