Tompkins interview: Hard feelings in camps and no future with Belfort

MMA trainer is really no different than being a head coach in any other sport. Different fighters need to be handled differently and when there’s a beef between teammates someone has to be the boss. Shawn Tompkins knows what Greg Jackson is going through right now. Jackson’s Submissions Fighting appears to be splintering a bit over the Rashad Evans-Jon Jones fight.

At TapouT Las Vegas, Tompkins joined me to talk about camp politics. He was also forthcoming about one of his old students Vitor Belfort, saying he’ll never work with the UFC middleweight title contender again.
