In light of recent allegations, James Krause will be selling his gym. 

One of the biggest stories in the MMA sphere recently has been the ongoing investigation into the betting practices of UFC fighters and coaches. Most notable in this investigation has been surrounding former UFC fighter turned coach James Krause. Stemming from a UFC fight between Darrick Minner vs. Shayilan Nuerdanbieke on Nov. 5 several actions and bans have been put into place. Minner came into the bout with a preexisting injury and prior to the bout, the betting lines swung greatly in his opponent’s favor. Minner was coached by Krause and now the circumstances surrounding that bout are under investigation. 

Krause has been vocal about his betting and boastful about the amounts of his winnings in the past. He has now been suspended from the UFC and no fighter trained by him may compete at this time. This will affect several UFC fighters who have previously trained at his Glory MMA and Fitness gym in the past including current flyweight interim champion Brandon Moreno. 

James Krause will sell his ownership in Glory MMA gym 

Due to the ban, it seems that Krause will be selling his ownership in the gym. According to reports by MMA Insiders, he will sell all ownership in this gym located in Kansas City and all its affiliates to Fighting Alliance Championship (FAC) owner & Iridium Sports agent, Joe Wooster. 

James Krause has elected to sell all ownership in Glory MMA and it’s affiliates to Fighting Alliance Championship owner & Iridium Sports agent Joe Wooster. Wooster is the founder of the Kansas City based FAC fight promotion and appears to have had a longstanding relationship w/ Krause prior to his takeover. FAC recently had it’s planned broadcast for this upcoming Friday removed from the UFC FightPass app and I’m hearing that Krause has opted to sell his stake in all gyms connected to both the UFC and the regional fight…

Krause and FAC have had a long history together and were even running events together. He was recently banned from attending those events as well. This solution of selling his gym could be the key to allowing UFC fighters who train there to remain active without consequence throughout the investigation period. Krause has not made any comments during this time about his suspension or the sale of his gym.
