Duane Ludwig to corner Chad Mendes at UFC 176 but not Urjiah Faber at UFC 175

Ethan Miller

UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani revealed that Duane “Bang” Ludwig will be cornering Chad Mendes at UFC 176 but not Urijah Faber at UFC 175.

It appears Duane Ludwig will be around Team Alpha Male in some capacity, even if he is not working with all of the fighters in the camp.

UFC Tonight's Ariel Helwani reported on Wednesday's show that "Bang" will corner Chad Mendes in his featherweight title rematch against longtime champion Jose Aldo at UFC.

However, he will not be in the corner of Team Alpha Male founder Urijah Faber, when he meets Alex Caceres at UFC 175 in Las Vegas. Instead, Faber will be coached by Martin Kampmann

Ludwig has worked with the camp for the past year but was supposed to terminate his working relationship with the team after the Memorial Day weekend card last month. All that changed when T.J. Dillashaw produced one of the biggest upsets in recent memory to win the bantamweight championship from Renan Barao.

It will be interesting to see where the partnership goes from here.
