The Godfather himself, Javier Mendez, made his way onto the Real Quick with Mike Swick Podcast. Episode #12 features the AKA founder and coach talking all things MMA, AKA, and not cornering Marc Bogutzki.
“Team AKA founder and head coach, Javier Mendez, sits in and shares some truly rare and interesting stories about the team coming from a group of unknowns, to one of the most successful teams in MMA. If behind the scenes stories of your favorite AKA athletes is what you want, we got you covered with this one! A real conversation about what it was really like, coming up AKA.”
Mendez is a walking / talking storyteller. His interview lasts about an hour and there is never a shortage of stories from Javier. They go back to the AKA beginnings and cover some of the top names in MMA.
Once again, Mike Swick allows himself to take it on the chin as well. If it makes for a better interview, then yes, Swick will put his ego aside. Being dominated on the ground by Jake Shields and taking a spinning back kick to the gut by Cung Le aren’t off limits. Mendez revels in rehashing some of Swick’s worst moments. However, not as much as Marc Bogutzki does.
Laugh it up now, Bogutzki; Because if the RQMS YouTube channel reaches 50k subscribers, you know what happens next.
