Joseph Benavidez: Duane Ludwig’s Marijuana Use Is Acceptable

Joseph Benavidez and the rest of Team Alpha Male were shocked when coach Duane Ludwig was so open about his marijuana use.

“It’s the job that [Ludwig] is doing that matters and he’s doing a great job,” said Benavidez to MMA Junkie. “Some people want to drink coffee and go to work. He says it helps him. If that’s what helps him break down footage and be [obsessive-compulsive] and be obsessed about it and helps him and helps us, that’s fine for me. It doesn’t bother me.”

Ludwig took the job in December and has helped the team earn several wins.

Benavidez is 2-0 for the UFC while under the training of Ludwig. He got the decision on Ian McCall and stopped Darren Uyenoyama. He??s set to return opposite flyweight Jussier Formiga.

That goes down at UFC Fight Night 28 on September 4. It??s from Brazil??s Mineirinho Arena.
