"It is sad to see a friend defame me, my achievements, and my training partners because of a relationship that didn't work out between me and my strength and conditioning coach."

Recent comments made by the former strength and conditioning coach of Thiago Alves have not gone unnoticed. The "Pitbull's" manager told Fighters Only what Alves had to say regarding the situation. Andre Benkei, a man Alves considers a friend, made shocking claims (including liposuction) about the Brazilian's method of making weight for his fight against John Howard at UFC 124. What do you make of this, Maniacs? Could the American Top Team (ATT) coach be on to something? Or is he just jealous that the "Dolce Diet" is working for the 170-pound warrior?
