Renowned technical innovator and No-Gi World champion Keenan Cornelius has been kicked out of Atos due to a disagreement with the team leadership.

Keenan revealed to us today that he was asked to leave the powerhouse team based in San Diego after coming into conflict with team co-founder and gym owner Andre Galvao. 

"There are many facets to this split," Keenan told FloGrappling. "I was asked to leave." 

Right now there are no further details as to exactly what caused the rift or led to this split. 

Cornelius will be 'going ronin' until further notice. He has competed for Atos after joining them in 2013 along with other competitors such as JT Torres, Mike Perez and others.
