PostSubject: Five Reasons Edmond Tarverdyan Is The Worst Coach In UFC   Sun Jan 01, 2017 9:24 pm

Quote :
After getting thoroughly ousted by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, Ronda Rousey’s future is uncertain. As for the reasons why she looked exactly the same as at UFC 193, take a wild guess. Nunes found the same success in the striking as Holly Holm did, arguably even more so. How did her coach Edmond Tarverdyan allow this fight to even take place if she was this obviously unprepared?

Then there’s the fact that he marched his most talented fighter straight into the awaiting counter-strike storm of Holly Holm. Or that he took a 7-2-1 heavyweight Travis Browne from contending at the top of the division to a 2-3 record in his last 5 bouts.

Aside from his in ring question marks, however, a huge reason Tarverdyan’s style is a distraction and burden to his fighters is his insatiable urge for and undeniable knack for finding himself in the headlines under less-than-desirable circumstances.

Thanks to the magnitude of Ronda Rousey’s superstardom, Tarverdyan has repeatedly found ways to redirect his fighter’s spotlight and take center stage at the forefront of attention. Obviously this is a big detriment that requires the utmost focus from it’s athletes.

Let’s take a look at the top five instances that seal Edmond’s title as the worst trainer in the UFC:

1) Edmond Tarverdyan (If That’s His Real Name) Gets Suspended & Placed On Probation For ID Theft:

On April 2, 2015, Tarverdyan responded “No” on his Corner’s License application for the California State Athletic Commission in answer to a question regarding the existence of any past criminal offenses. As it turns out, however, back in 2010, Tarverdyan was picked up on two felony counts of identity theft and one count of resisting arrest.

After he was detained, Tarverdyan was found to be in possession of multiple credit cards, pin numbers, and social security numbers. When this was discovered, he was temporarily suspended and placed on a three-year probationary period.

2) Beef with Schaub

3) Edmond’s Bankruptcy Blues

As if having a trainer who has a past as a conman and enjoys confronting your opponents isn’t distracting enough, surely wondering if your gym is going to get turned into a Chipotle would certainly do the trick.

In July of 2015, Tarverdyan filed for bankruptcy, claiming to have “$700,000 in debt” and “$0 in monthly income”. When asked how this could be possible given his status as Rousey’s coach, Tarverdyan said the following via Paul Gift of Bloody Elbow:

“And that’s what I’m saying. With my, I did not know what’s been put. And then so I hired a new attorney and I did read the first page. I wasn’t aware of most of the stuff, and I’m willing to fix it.”

I’m sure he was willing to return the aforementioned identities too.

4) Doesn’t Do Well When He ‘Meets the Parents’:

5) Werdoomed Himself To A Fabricio Front Kick:

Last but not least, we have the very high-profile and equally bizarre ending to an already bizarre fight at UFC 203.

According to Werdum, Tarverdyan entered the cage at the end of the third and final round saying some “bad things” to the former champ. Werdum responded with a look of shock which was followed by a shove-fest-inspiring front kick to the belly of Tarverdyan – approximately two-feet south of the area many feel it would’ve been most effectively placed.

At first the event seemed to escalate but was quelled before resulting in suspensions and, perhaps, probationary issues for Tarverdyan. With Rousey still promising a triumphant return to the Octagon and Browne at least having the ability to be competitive against second-tier fighters in the heavyweight division, we are certainly far from the end of Tarverdyan’s antics.

However, Browne is one loss away from having to seriously reconsider where he’s heading with his career, and Rousey is near a year removed from her knockout loss to Holly Holm. With each of his flagship fighters in desperate need of a win, the near future could spell the end of Tarverdyan’s run in the public eye if he’s unable to produce results.


Couple those reasons with the fact that his teams record in the past year is at a staggering 1-12! I think it may be hard to argue.

Also, he's just an insufferable douche nozzle, for what it's worth.

yes he is, although i dont know all the other coaches. im sure there are plenty bad coaches, but he is the most prolific.
that said, i must add that simply, rhonda is incapable of learning striking. Walking forward with arms reaching out as she gets tags? thats the reaction of someone completely lost and confused in there. ive seen more skillful drunk homeless people.
but then, the demise of travis browne brings me back to believing in his awful abilities

Rhonda's main problem is that she is mentally weak and cannot accept defeat.
She's kind of like a mentally weak field goal kicker in football or closer in baseball. Some awesome athletes get that 1 punishing high profile loss, and just never recover from that point forward.

I don't wanna talk about weak field goal kickers!

His/her main problem IMO is not being able to accept the fact that she's not the best at every facet of MMA.

That's what makes a great champion/fighter, knowing what your strong points are and manipulating others to falling into your game plan.....not just thinking that you can beat everyone at everything and walking into a gun fight with a .22 pistol when your opponent is double fisting with double barrell shotguns.

The problem with the above scenario is that Tarverdyan sent her into the gun fight with the .22 pistol, but made her believe that she had two bazookas.....

Yeah the quick finish of Correia (and McCann to a lesser degree) was probably the worst thing that could've happened to her as far as the amount of her own striking slill Kool Aid she probably chugged afterward, and I'm sure Edmund dove in head first because he could finally take credit for something in one of her victories.

Says a lot about how much Correia actually deserved to be in there in the first place.
