View Full Version : Ryan Bader, CB Dolloway and Aaron Simpson Leave Arizona Combat Sports

03-13-2010, 03:11 AM

The move by the three UFC competitors and Arizona State alums comes at a curious time as all are coming off the biggest wins of their careers. Bader defeated Keith Jardine via third round TKO at UFC 110, Dolloway took home a unanimous decision that same night against Goran Reljic and Simpson defeated Tom Lawlor at UFC Fight Night 20 in January.

Jamie Varner responds on the UG:

"I've been at AZ combat for 6 years now this gym builds fighters from the ground up! None of those guys would be where they are with out there training partners and the Lallys! Some douche bags like to talk **** but our gym is battle tested and proven! When Riggs left he started losing and got cut from the UFC. When Fickett got kicked out he started losing and got kicked out of the UFC! Iím very interested to see what happens with those guys I wish them nothing but the best in there careers, but they made a HUGE mistake!"

Bader had the personal invite from Big Nog to train with him,
man I really hope that is where he goes!
I wonder what is up with this move?

I have a few buddies who trained at AZ Combat for a stint and they met those guys. Actually from what I have heard about the place, it's a nice gym but it has some drawbacks.

Still, I know a lot of people who will be sad to hear that. Lots of people are big on backing the guys from AZ Combat sports down here.
