    I can honestly not say what coaching staff was taking to Greece because as I said I was out because of knee reconstruction…best to ask Kancho Takemasa Okuyama as he was the head of the CFPA at the time!

    Ya all do that. Shane your a straight clown! You obviously have a problem wiith Alfie. If you have a problem I see him once and a while in Toronto, ON when I come train from Hamiltion (where real MMA fighters are at) I can pass a message for you? What I think the situation is that your upset that you weren’t named head coach and because you and all you fighter are jokes! And j.r you should only speak when your spoken to, expecally when you got no clue what the f*%# your talking about.
