Joseph Benavidez Says There is No Camp Rivalry Between Team Alpha Male and Alliance MMA

Only Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber are rivals…
MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed Joseph Benavidez, who denied that there was a rivalry between Team Alpha Male and Alliance MMA. Team Alpha Male is the camp for Benavidez and top bantamweight Urijah Faber. Former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, who recently was forced to vacate his title due to injury, trains out of Alliance MMA.
Benavidez stated: "It's a Cruz and Faber rivalry, not an Alpha Male-Alliance rivalry…I think he enjoys having somebody to be a rival with because he likes giving his own friends crap. If you know Faber, he's like just like that, but he's friendly with everyone. I think he genuinely enjoys like having an arch enemy because he likes everyone, and everyone likes him, so it's like, ‘Hey, it's cool. I have this one enemy.'"
