RHADI FERGUSON: "YOU DO PUSSY TRAINING. YOU PERFORM LIKE A PUSSY."



I'm not too familiar with Rhadi Ferguson.  He seems like really intense guy.  The kind of guy who wears a whistle around his neck at all times.  I've had coaches like that over the years.  Good times.

This was my first dose of Rhadi, and I think I'm quickly becoming a convert.  Stop me if you think I'm making  a mistake.  Otherwise, get used to me calling out all grapplers for being pussies on a regular basis.

Ok, then, Pussy.  Maybe it doesn't work for me.

Serious note:  He makes some good points on an issue I see for a lot of grapplers - an lack of intensity (especially at key moments in a match/roll) and what I call "getting after it" (i.e., seeking positions and submissions with intensity).  More on that in another post.





Rhadi is a strength and conditioning coach and competed as a member of the 2004 Olympic Judo Team, among many other things. Pretty badass.

  3. lol funny stuff coming from a guy who is a walking talking write-off, this guy has more injuries than a battered housewife...

    the pussification of society has nothing to do with people talking about concussions in sport or parents coddling thier kids during practices, or even injuries in sport, it is really about clearly defined gender roles, which are rapidly dissappearing

    calling people pussies for having concussions that are causing suicide and other things is ignorant, there's nothing glamorous about serious injuries, and brain trauma

    unfortunately its not a gladiator sport, gladiator sports invovled slavery and fighting to the death at times, he obviously knows nothing about what he is talking about since gladiators were controlled by the biggest pussies of them all, slave drivers, that created teams of gladiators who were fighting against thier will, no point making slavery, football and mma more than what it is, a sport

    rhadi is confused between a bunch of lyodd irvin marketing motivational smacktalk, hence the outliers reference, mixed with a hollywood mentality of what it takes to create soldier/warrior, yet he is too injured from his overtraining to actually make a good run at an mma career

    go figure

  4. lol this guy just likes saying the word pussy in a way that makes him look like he knows some shit

    letting your infant daughter hit her head repeatedly to teach her a lesson is beyond stupid it's child abuse

    kids aren't little warriors in training, lol some people shouldn't be alowd to have kids

    not everyone wants thier 5 mins of fame, because if you doing it for fame you should quit before you start, not doin it for the right reasons, fame just another kind of greed

  5. Thanks, Anonymouses. Good points.

    Close call. I almost made this guy my personal guru. Now I need to apologize to the 25 people I called pussies yesterday. :)

  6. Anonymous 1:

    Stop being a pussy. He puts blankets and pillows around so she doesn't hurt her head. Every parent I've seen has let their child fall when they start to learn to walk. Put them in a open space so they don't crack their head against something hard, then let them learn. Let. Them. Fall.

    You talk about all those injuries....then don't play! Guess what? As an American Citizen I am free to make my own choices. If you don't want to compete at that level - with the associated risks - then don't compete at that level.

    I believe we should inform young athletes of the risks, but adults can make their own decisions. But if you don't want to play, that has consequences as well. Don't get mad if you can't hang with the guys who go through hell to get where they are. 20 minute, 30 minute, 1 hour workout. 20 minute, 30 minute, 1 hour body. That simple.

  7. Boy this guy seems worked up.

    Probably jealous that he's not making MILLIONS of $$$ like his fellow "outlier" meat-heads in the NFL, etc. whose paydays make MMA salaries look like CHUMP CHANGE.

  8. Personally, I like pussy training.

    Without it, there would be no friction when I enter between my wife's legs for evening "fun time."
