Johny Walker ditched his former head coach. The MMA fighter even said “he don’t know how to hold the pad properly”…
Walker discussed the loss to Anderson with a vloger – The Schmo.
“I don’t accept this loss because I can beat him,” Walker said. “I know that. But I had a little problem during the fight, fight week as well, before the fight some stress with my team. So I learned a lot and it’s not going to happen again.”
“I don’t train with my old coach any more because the problem is with him,” he continued. “During fight week he stressed me out twice and before the fight he almost hurt my shoulder because he don’t know how to hold the pad properly. We don’t match too well on fight week. For a long time I start having these, you know, because we live together, about respect as well. Somethings are not getting met. So now I have no coach and I’m trying to go to Tristar and look for a new coach and new experience and new guys. And I’m ready to restart again.”

It is strange to blame so heavily on his former coach.
“I’ll be ready. I’m going to train hard there, gonna learn as much as I can, I’m gonna beat Nikita Krylov. I don’t care what people think. I’m going to be the same guy, but better.”
“I’m gonna work in everything,” he concluded. “Wrestling, jiu jitsu, strike, box, everything that I can work. I always learn and improve myself everyday. So I’ll be better and I’ll be back. Soon. The 14th of March. Brazil. My time to get the bonus of the night again.”
