RQMS EP 38: AKA supercoach Javier Mendez talks everything AKA

rqms-aka-supercoach-mendez

Javier Mendez is now the supercoach to the #1 and #2 pound for pound fighters in the world. AKA has always housed the top guys in the world and that is a direct result of the coaching at AKA. So, Mendez hopped on the Real Quick Podcast and talked about (almost) everything AKA. I say ‘almost’ because apparently Mendez has been muzzled about everything regarding Khabib Nurmagomedov.

From our YouTube:

“AKA Founder and head coach, Javier Mendez, joins the guys to talk about what all the team is up to, discusses their upcoming fights, and everything else AKA. Javier has a wealth of knowledge, as he has built UFC Champions out of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Daniel Cormier, Cain Velasquez, and Luke Rockhold. Having Javier on the show is always entertaining, as Javier was Mike’s longtime coach and friend, as well as now business partner.”

Make sure to subscribe to the Real Quick YouTube channel. Stay up to date and don’t ever miss another episode of the Real Quick Podcast. Also, leave a comment, because both Mike Swick and Marc Bogutzki answer all questions.

RQMS Podcast Ep 12. AKA coach and founder, Javier Mendez

RQMS-coach-founder-mendez

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.
