Welterweight Duane Ludwig’s stand-up has been entertaining fans and felling foes for more than a decade in the cage and even longer when considering his kickboxing career. However, it looks like “Bang” has likely fought for the last time, as the 34-year old has turned his focus towards coaching full-time rather than training for his own in-ring action.

Ludwig, who is currently head trainer at Team Alpha Male, offered some insight on his decision in a recent interview with MixedMartialArts.com while also taking a look back at some of his favorite moments in the ring.

“I don’t really see much more of a fighting career. I’ll be 100% healthy in September and at that point I’ll make a decision whether I’m going to fight again or not. Of course it would be nice to go out with a win, but I don’t really have the heart or desire to fight again. I’m kind of happy with what I have now, just coaching the guys and relaxing a bit and enjoying my family time. It’s kind of nice not being so selfish.”

“My fight with Genki Sudo was an experience. That was crazy. It was still a bit early in my career and I didn’t really understand what was going on. Sometimes I’m still not sure if I do. Being such an enigmatic fighter and just being all over the place and just being crazy, I just wanted to make sure I stayed away from his ground work. Just hit and move basically. He’d just come in with this weird things that just threw me off. I’d never experienced fighting or sparring with somebody that crazy. It was my UFC debut, and that’s when I just fought Jens Pulver, actually, for the world title, and so I had a little bit of steam behind me and a little bit of pressure. It was just a crazy scenario and it was just a crazy night, for sure. I barely won and I’m glad for that.”

“I’d say my most complete performance was against Jens Pulver, just because it was such a long training camp and it was for the world title. At the time, he was the pound-for-pound number one fighter in the world. That meant a lot. I had a lot going into it emotionally. I trained for it very hard and it had got postponed once or twice. It was just a long story. For the bout to finally take place, and for me to win like I did, and I didn’t get it, it was a cool setup, a cool story.”

“I’d definitely like to rematch Hardy, Dan Hardy. I’d definitely like to rematch Takanori Gomi as well. But I couldn’t make 155 again. I’m about 210 right now.”
