For Team Alpha Male — another one bites the dust.

After losing former UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw recently, Team Alpha Male lost another one of its’ most established top fighters, as former UFC Flyweight title contender Joseph Benavidez has apparently parted ways with the California-based MMA team.

Much like Dillashaw, Benavidez is expected to end up representing the Elevation Fight Team, that is, according to Team Alpha Male coach Justin Buchholz.

Buchholz told the folks at Stud Radio the following about Joseph Benavidez parting ways with Team Alpha Male:


“He did leave the team. I mean, you train here in Sacramento, you’re part of Team Alpha Male, or you don’t live here. He hasn’t trained at all since I took over as head coach. I thought Joe would at least give a chance of me, and Danny, and Holdsworth running this new program along with Master Thong and Joey. But he never did. He came in town for one week, he moved his house, did, like, one boxing class. I’m not upset at him for leaving because he didn’t leave under me as head coach. He left when the team was hurting — we didn’t have a coach, we didn’t have much direction. So it is what it was.”

not a surprise and not that big of a loss to a aging gatekeeper who will never be champion in his division.

great fighter but he is forever stuck until dj leaves that division or retires.

I hope tam starts focusing on all the young prospects and gets back into the swing of things.

I always thought it was kind of a conflict of interest for TAM to have most of their top fighters competing in more or less the same weight class.
I know it can't be helped, and really every gym has fighters training together all the time who are top 20 or so and are in the same weight class, but it just seems like TAM is at the extreme end of that, and it was bound to eventually become an issue. I mean who's the heaviest world class MMA fighter they have in their camp? Danny Castillo at 155lbs? Then the rest of the top guys are all only seperated by 20 lbs (which was probably an even bigger issue before the UFC opened up a 125lb division).
You can't have that many guys in the same camp, competing in the same org, fighting for same titles. It's like Evans/Jones X 5.
