MMA Odds and Ends for Tuesday: Justin Buchholz no longer Team Alpha Male head coach

Justin Buchholz revealed on the latest edition of Stud Show Radio that he is no longer the head coach at Team Alpha Male. Buchholz is part of a string of changes at Team Alpha Male. The Sacramento based gym has has seen multiple fighters leave program including Paige Van Zant and Joseph Benavidez. With the change you have to wonder if this has an impact on bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt who defends his bantamweight title this Saturday against TJ Dillashaw at UFC 217 in New York. 

“I am no longer the head coach of Team Alpha Male I had a system that I put in place last year that I was in charge of and I stuck to and made things happen and we have gone to a different system. You know, Urijah explained it to me that there are five head coaches, everyone is like a head coach but I am no longer a head coach, I run the Muay Thai program,” he said. “I’m not really sure [who is running the MMA practices].”
