“I’m not a Head MMA Coach”- Eddie Bravo explains why sending him in to speak to Tony Ferguson was the incorrect choice

Eddie Bravo defined that he was not prepared in any respect to go in and speak Tony up. He stated the if the struggle had been with a wrestler like Khabib Nurmagomedov, then he may have had a say.


Nevertheless, he didn’t know the right way to deal with the scenario because it was his first time heading into the Octagon as head coach to speak to his fighter. Furthermore, he defined that he didn’t have his glasses, and therefore, was “blind”. Thus, it was when he truly bought an in depth have a look at Tony that he realized simply how badly beat up he was.

“I’ve by no means been a Head MMA coach ever in my life. By no means wished to be. By no means wished to be and even to at the present time, that’s on me, by no means been. I’m not Trevor Wittman, that man’s superb. I’m not a Greg Jackson, Duke Roufus. That’s an entire [other] degree. That’s a man that must be speaking to the fighter that’s sitting down.”
