Duke Roufus Explains Split With UFC Bantamweight Chico Camus
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.29.2014

- Trainer Duke Roufus recently spoke about the split with UFC Bantamweight Chico Camus. Here is what he had to say…

ON The Split With Chico Camus: "Honestly, I'm so happy he did well [at UFC on FOX 10]. I like Chico personally. It's just a matter of code of conduct and keeping a training schedule at our academy. We have a pretty strict level of training at our academy. By default, with him being in the UFC, he's a leader whether he wants to be or not for all the young athletes on the team. Everybody on the team wants to be where he's at, and there's a certain level of training that I expect from people. It's nothing personal."

On The Issues That Caused The Split: "I've been trying for a while," Roufus said. "You try every route. You're the bad guy, the good guy, the best friend. … I think the world of Chico. He's a great kid. But you can only ask someone and beg them so many times. This is not the first time. It's been many times. I know people will say, ‘The guy's winning fights,' but part of the special relationship the athletes have at our academy is because we are a true team. Everyone is helping everyone else win fights. We don't have guys who just drop in and train when they have a fight."

Will They Work Together Again?: "I think there's always a chance," he said. "I don't hate anybody or hold grudges toward anybody. Just a misunderstanding. He felt a certain way, and I felt a certain way. It was what it was. I wish them nothing but the best. I came out this card and I won, so I think that says a lot about me."

On How Good Chico Camus Could Be: "He's doing well," Roufus said. "But how well could he do if he committed as much as some of the other athletes? He has a lot of potential, is the scary thing about it. He could be something special if he had the commitment level of some of the other athletes I work with."
