As far as Duane Ludwig is concerned, he’s in a perfect position right now.
Ludwig, a veteran of many MMA wars, was hired to be the head coach of Team Alpha Male. He is working with UFC contenders Urijah Faber, Joseph Benavidez, Chad Mendes and others, and appears content with the next stage of his life.
Recently, “Bang” talked with Mixed Martial Arts about his future career.
I don’t really see much more of a fighting career. I’ll be 100% healthy in September and at that point I’ll make a decision whether I’m going to fight again or not. Of course it would be nice to go out with a win, but I don’t really have the heart or desire to fight again. I’m kind of happy with what I have now, just coaching the guys and relaxing a bit and enjoying my family time. It’s kind of nice not being so selfish.
Ludwig (21-14) has lost three straight – all of which came in 2012. His last win was a 2011 decision over Amir Sadollah.
