    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What Win-Loss ratio would make an MMA fighter unqualified to teach? (Your Opinion)

    Serious question: How many losses-to-wins does an MMA fighter need to accrue before he is teh suck. 2 to 1? 3 to 1?

    I ask because I personally know a guy who is 1-3 (or 0-4, depending on the site you check) and he's teaching MMA. Should this just be looks at as bad luck, or...?

    Most professional sport coaches were failed / mediocre or never beens in their sport.

    Wayne Gretzky is a shitty hockey coach

    Fight record is in no way an indication of ability to instruct.

    Yah, but a losing record doesn't make you a good trainer, either.

    I'm not looking for inspirational examples of how some guys overcome lack of skill by harnessing their natural ability to teach. I'm talking about, if an active MMA fighter is losing consistently, does he even know his **** well enough to teach it?

    i think the how matters more than the actual w or l.

    who knows, someone might have just gotten the tomato can treatment multiple times.

    A lousy carpenter may hand his tools to a worthy apprentice; and that apprentice may turn out to be the best carpenter in the world.

    But on the other hand; was it his technique that got him his record, or just bad use of what he knows?

    Don't you think you should be concerned with the win-loss record of the students instead?
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

    This thread belongs in YMAS. It's fucking ridiculous.

    Airman Kai has failed on this thread. He also failed on many of his e-comics. How many times can he fail before he should be laughed off the forum?
