411Mania.com: Let's move to your Team Punishment camp for a bit. Are you still working with Kendall Grove and Matt Hamill? How is training going for their respective fights taking on Patrick Cote and Michael Bisping?

Ortiz: Unfortunately I've actually parted ways with Matt. I know he's in Cincinnati working hard. He's doing his own thing training with his guys. It's kind of hard for him to come out to California especially with a wife and kid. Kendall Grove is actually in Las Vegas training with Couture for his fight against Cote. We're actually pretty excited because we just signed Kendall to a contract with Team Punishment clothing so we'll be taking care of him for a while.


he left punishment and started his own gym it looks real nice but if doesnt go to someones camp its all over in the bisping fight well i guess it already is heres the linkhttp://www.matthamill.com/training.html

At least they have sandwiches.



But yeah, maybe he's just doing it for the money in which case I can't blame him but I don't think he's quite accomplished enough to open an MMA school just yet. Maybe a wrestling school.

Geez, it sounds like Tito can't even hold on to his "Special Olympics" section of his gym. A lot guys are jumping off the Team Punishment train. I wish Hamill all the luck in his personal life, cause his MMA clock on his MMA career is ticking away quickly.

It would be hard. Though he seems more or less well-adapted.

Yea right thats kinda the reason i liked him so much.overcoming his disability and beating ass although technically hes not the greatest I would like to see him succeed .Great attitude and demeanor I hope he gets rich with his gym good for him in a sense and bad for him only cause he has to fight bisbing.Im gonna be holding my pillow over my eyes when bisbing is tortureing him with flying knees lol

sorry to bring up an old thread

but why would he stay at punishment? he would end up like tito. He needs to go to a boxing camp or a BJJ camp, the only think punishment has that is superior to all the other camps is Ivan Salaverry for conditioning.

Ask Grove about his improvement during TUF 3 and whether or not he agrees with that. Tito is a great coach. He outcoached a coching legend in Shamrock on TUF 3. The only problem with his camp is it can only take you so far but Hamill isn't anywhere near that skill yet.

I dunno about ken being a great coach, the reason tito looked like a god on that show is becuase it was the best TUF coach to date against the worst TUF coach to date. Keep in mind that Jesse Forbes was Ken's first pick

and grove hasnt just been training with Tito, in fact he has spent alot of his time with Randy. The only person who has been at punishment the whole time is tito himself so he would be the one to look at to see how the camp would affect someones mma game. So unless Hamill wants the sport to evolve even more ahead of him then he better switch camps and start catching up to it

I'm not sure what Hammil is thinking with this move. Yes, I am sure he will help improve the wrestling game of others.... but it is going to do nothing to help round out his game. He is a GOOD wrestler... not sure about GREAT, but he definitely needs to work on stand up and if he isn't going to surround himself with other good fighters to help him work on that, I don't ever see him going anywhere in the UFC....

watch him go and kick Bisping's ass now that I've gone and said this :ahh:
