Because the talented unknown coaches will never be elevated to the public consciousness unless they perpetuate the racist, fascist, cult sentiment that IS the MMA power structure/dynamic. And no socially just MMA coach would join that power structure even if they were invited.
I speak from experience. Rob Haydak from CFFC asked me if I’d be open to consolidate Brazen Boxing & MMA under the Renzo/Daniel Gracie banner. I responded that “I’d be more inclined to shit white-hot razor blades.” Shortly after, Felder joined Daniel Gracie’s gym/team. 🤷🏻♂️
Exactly. I’d like someone to ask Felder or Jonavin Webb why they continue to be friends with Justin Haskell- a noted Philadelphia Proud Boy. It seems most fighters are fine with racism when it is an expedient means to notoriety or the UFC.
