UFC 143 winner Josh Koscheck (17-5 MMA, 15-5 UFC) dropped the first hint of trouble at this past Thursday's pre-fight press conference, when he talked about the importance of "Team Me."

Following his split-decision win over Mike Pierce at Saturday's event in Las Vegas, Koscheck opened the flood gates.

"I'll be training out of Fresno for now," Koscheck told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I'm no longer affiliated with some of the people at the gym that I've been training at."

"That gym," of course, is American Kickboxing Academy, where Koscheck has long honed his craft. Koscheck made his way up the ranks alongside fellow AKA welterweights Jon Fitch (23-4-1 MMA, 13-2-1 UFC) and Mike Swick, and the family feel of the team lead to controversial fallouts with UFC president Dana White when the triumvirate refused to fight each other.

Recently, however, there have been rumblings of some discontent. Longtime AKA grappling coach Dave Camarillo left the gym in late 2011, and it appears Koscheck is now doing the same.

Maybe his team is tired of his eye poking ways

Swick will probably end up leaving shortly. He just started up his own gym alongside Roger Huerta in Brazil.

I bet they wouldn't fight still but I'd take Fitch. Swick should step up and fight one of them to get it goin. A round robin between the 3 AKA guys.
