How has Duane Ludwig helped Team Alpha Male take their games to the next level? Perhaps his unique take on film study is making all the difference.

Former UFC and kickboxing veteran Duane Ludwig has taken over the reigns at Team Alpha Male during the past four months and the results have been extraordinary.

The five Alpha Male fighters on the UFC roster have gone 9-0 in the short span, scoring increasingly impressive victories, most recently winning all three fights at UFC on Fox 7 by stoppage inside the second round.

So what's Ludwig's secret weapon helping him take these already talented fighters to the next level? His answer (taken from part two of tonight's exclusive interview with "Bang") may surprise you.

"It's freakin legal. Let me address this issue. When I watch film, I watch film normal how I am now. Then I watch film when I'm high on marijuana. I also watch the film again when I have Alpha Brain in my system. I watch film from three different states of consciousness just to get different looks at things. Just to see if maybe I missed a step or a nice little detail just to get different looks on things. I take this serious as hell."

The results speak for themselves. Perhaps marijuana is a performance enhancing drug after all.
