UFC OPEN PERFORMANCE INSTITUTE IN LAS VEGAS

UFC has opened a Performance Institute in Las Vegas worth $12 million.


About 300 fighters were given a tour of the facility at a retreat, according to reports.

“This place is your house. This facility is open to everybody. You can start or end your camp here,” the president Dana White said to the crowd. He said it was the “best training facility here on planet Earth.”

The facility is supervised by former fighter turned company Vice President Forrest Griffin. It has medical and nutrition staff, strength and conditioning experts and others. The facility has a full size octagon boxing ring and wrestling mat for the fighters.

The fighters would have full access to weights and water treadmills, high altitude simulator and cardio equipment with no usage fees. The 15-acre site is quite a marvel to behold. The full campus is not available and the employees only just moved in. Read more »

The year 2016 was not a very good one for Evans, as it was in that same year he lost his second straight match, and an MRI scan suggested that his time was finally over in the cage. Read more »
