The infamous coach Edmond has somehow manage to con his way to another high profile position…
Perhaps one of the most notorious coaches in modern MMA, Edmond Tarverdyan makes the list for the wrong reasons. During his time coaching Ronda Rousey, Travis Browne and others, coach Edmond has put the screws to some of the sport’s biggest talents.
After training there for a short while, the previously highly rated Browne went 3-6. ‘Hapa’ is currently on a four-fight losing streak, and Rousey’s last two losses demonstrated exactly how poor Edmond’s boxing advice really is.
Surprisingly, Tarverdyan’s home nation of Armenia didn’t get the memo…
Coach Edmond Will Be Helping Potential Olympic Boxers…
Releasing a statement on Instagram, coach Edmond is delighted he’s now the vice president of the Armenian boxing federation:
gfc_diamondI want to thank everyone who has been there for me throughout all these years of my coaching career. Family, friends and fans. I officially became the Vice President of the National boxing team of armenia. I am honored and I promise I will do my best to help the athletes become world and Olympic medalists.
Shoulder to shoulder we stand strong next to each other brother @artur_gevorgyan the president of the team. We will prepare our team to achieve there dreams. Thank you all. #armenianboxingfederation
Say some prayers for the young boxers of Armenia, especially if Edmond plans on teaching them this kind of wizard sh*t:
RIP Armenian Boxing
Ronda Rousey’s own Mother, former Olympic Judo gold medallist and martial arts legend, Dr Anne-Marie De Mars went nuts on coach Edmond.
“I predicted it in advance. Ronda trained with an idiot”, De Mars told Submission Radio. “She trained with an idiot who’s a fraud. I would be shocked to find out if that guy has any record at all. I saw him fight once, and he fought somebody who had a record of like 6-20 and won a decision against somebody who had a drastically losing record.”
“The guy’s a fraud. Ronda has a lot of talent. She came into that gym with a very strong build, 10-year background of training at the Olympic level, and it carried her a long way,” she continued. “She needs to get away from some egomaniac fraud and be herself. And Ronda as herself can beat anybody on the planet. So I’m sad about it, but you become an adult and you make decisions and sometimes you make mistakes, and hopefully you learn from those mistakes.”
“I told her flat-out that I think that guy she was training with was an idiot and a fraud. He’s been investigated for bankruptcy fraud out here, for tax evasion, for mortgage fraud,” she said. “They just suspended his license for falsifying the application, he was convicted of two counts of identity theft. And so we don’t talk about that much because I told her flat-out, ‘as long as you’re training with this guy, I just cannot stomach that.’”
