Josh Koscheck Blames American Kickboxing Academy's Lack Of 'Real Coaching' For Not Producing More Champions

Josh Koscheck has never been one to keep his opinions and thoughts to himself. Now, having parted ways with American Kickboxing Academy (AKA), Koscheck is blaming the coaching at the camp for not producing more champions.

Or at least that's what he told Ariel Helwani in an interview for MMA Fighting:


Quote from the video:

"I think the reason why everybody is so successful at the gym, over there in San Jose, is because of the training partners. I really truly believe that the training partners is why guys have fought for world titles and guys have been UFC champions like Cain, was because of the training partners. I think that is the number one reason. I think if you had real coaching, you would have seen a lot more champions out of that gym and I think that now, in my career, were going to see big improvements really quick."

Koscheck will face Johny Hendricks in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 3.
