    nice interviewer

  • Chicago

    Ludwig is riding a 14-1 winning record with his guys at Alpha Male. At this point those guys can beat anyone.

      And the 1 loss was damn close with TJ

  • Maddawgmar

    If he wins I can’t see anyone else who deserves a shot. That’ll be four straight.

    Awesome Urijah! Keep up the good work. Best of luck in all of your endeavours.

    Please no more title shots for the California Queer…same results as the last. He’s second best and that’s where it ends for him right now.

    • Bouncer

      he’s a champion caliber fighter with plenty of career left, with duane in the camp I think he will get the belt.

  • drkdisciple

    this guy can beat everyone at 135 except the champion that regardless of how many title shots he is given.

  • DaMAn

    If he beats McDonald, he absolutely deserves the title shot. I understand he’s had like 4 title shots in the past 3 years, but he can beat anyone without a belt basically.

    I’m sick of this guy getting title shots after winning 1 or 2 fights but nobody can deny this time he deserves it if he takes out MacDonald because it will be a four fight win streak. He’s been nothing but impressive so I won’t be shocked if he wins.

    Faber is always goes the distance in title bouts but that’s about it, no wins nothing to write home about
