Former UFC superstar Ronda Rousey\u2019s training facility Glendale Fighting Club has always been a source of controversy. Whether it\u2019s the deterioration of Travis \u201cHapa\u201d Browne\u2019s fighting skills since moving his training camps to Glendale, or head coach Edward Tarverdyan\u2019s advice while cornering Rousey in her 48-second blowout loss to Amanda Nunes, the Glendale Fighting Club has had its share of bad press. The oft-maligned combat sports training facility is under fire again as Glendale-backed boxer Vanes Martirosyan prepares to take on world champion Gennady Golovkin on Cinco de Mayo this coming weekend. Boxing reporter Elie Seckbach was at Glendale Fighting Club for a media event to promote the bout but got into hot water for \u201csh*t talking\u201d about \u00a0Ronda Rousey. https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/Bh7IxcNAtJP\/?utm_sourceig_embed Seckbach is a respected figure within the boxing community and is known for breaking stories and exclusive interviews with the biggest boxers in the world. As Seckbach tells it, he had attempted to interview Rousey years back, but was thwarted by the former UFC champion because he \u201cwasn\u2019t big enough\u201d. Seckbach took to his YouTube channel to provide his side of the story:(Quotes Via MMAMania) \u201cI was invited to cover the press event for \u2018GGG\u2019 and Vanes Martirosyan. I\u2019ve known \u2018GGG\u2019 and Vanes for many, many years both before they were very well known. Vanes I\u2019ve had a great relationship with, same thing with \u2018GGG,\u2019 very respectful. I am cool with both of them. I walk into the gym and Vanes\u2019 dad runs up to me, hugs me and introduces me to Vanes\u2019 kids and his wife. Then this kid comes over, I don\u2019t even know him, maybe I met him five years ago. I\u2019m not sure of the guys name, but he was very nervous or agitated. Obviously looking back he was mad for Ronda. I understand, like I said we are very respectful, we keep it classy at these things. So this kid comes over, then comes back after two minutes and says \u2018Come with me,\u2019 takes out his camera and says, \u2018You have to leave, get the F out.\u2019 At first I thought it was a joke. If you watch my video and see my facial expressions, I thought it was a prank because in boxing gyms we always do pranks. But this kid was dead serious, don\u2019t know his name and I don\u2019t know who he is. But obviously he has some feelings toward Ronda. He\u2019s looking out for her, they are friends, I get it. Like I said, I respect that he looks out for his friend. But here is my thing: I wasn\u2019t there for Ronda, I wasn\u2019t there for MMA and I wasn\u2019t there for UFC. I was there to help promote a fight. We cover boxing, we love boxing. So he posted on his Instagram, very classy move, that shows a lot of class of course. And Ronda posted, \u2018Now some people will learn,\u2019 I am paraphrasing. She said \u2018relationsships are more important than clicks.\u2019 My answer to that is, listen I cover boxing and when you say you\u2019re going to knock out Floyd (Mayweather), I\u2019m sorry but I have to stand up for boxing. I have to defend the sport that I am passionate about and I cover. If you dish, you should be able to receive, don\u2019t get mad. If a fighter doesn\u2019t win two fights it\u2019s not my fault. Like I said, no hard feelings we keep it moving. In fact, Edmond Tarverdyan, the head coach of the gym saw me recently at a fight and asked me if I could help out one of his fighters who is 5-0 and give him some shine. And I said absolutely.\u201d Rousey even commented on Vanes\u2019 video of Seckbach\u2019s removal from Glendale Fighting Club: Just more bad press for Glendale Fighting Club. Martirosyan replaced Golovkin\u2019s original opponent Canelo Alvarez after Alvarez tested positive for a banned substance leading into their scheduled rematch.
