I was in Boston cornering Volkan Oezdemir as he battled against Daniel Cormier for the UFC LHW title. While we didn't get the outcome we hoped for, Volkan made us all very proud and the sky is the limit. In California, Michael Chandler had a dominating performance for Bellator.
Always a good way to start your morning.

Training never stops! Been busy the last few weeks in Florida. Good to have Luke Rockhold down here getting ready for UFC Fight Night Pittsburgh. Also future Bellator champ Linton Vassell, and Kamaru Usman, who is training for his fight on the same card as Luke.
Grateful to have Will Harris down here to document the opening. Hard Knocks 365
The doors are open at @hardknocks365 in Fort Lauderdale and to have a facility with the likes of @henrihooft @mariosperry @xpesports @craig_xpe @tonyvillanixpe @coachgjones and more in one building is legendary. Yesterday I had a chance to be apart of the soft opening and was able to capture the pros and amateurs in one building. It's a filmmakers dream to be in one place and catch the likes of @ruthless_rl @volkan_oezdemir @predatortoon @gilbert_burns @anquanboldin @darrellerevis @stingray56 and more was a treat to come back down to south Florida. Now it's back to SIN CITY 🎬🎥📽 ✈️ @ufc @nfl "Anatomy of a Fighter" #anatomyofafighter #tuf25 #ufc #mma #ufc214 #ufcanaheim #bjj #jiujitsu #filmmaker #documentary #lasvegas #southflorida #fighting #MayMacWorldTour #cinematographer #mayweatherpromotions #legendary #explosionsinthesky #motivation #nflcombine
If you're in the Fort Lauderdale area, check us out.
Monday, July 17 will be our grand opening for Hard Knocks 365!
Very excited to have HardKnocks365 opening up next week in Fort Lauderdale. We have an amazing crew here featuring NFL trainer Tony Villani, BJJ legend Mario Sperry, NCAA wrestling champion Greg Jones, and myself. If you are in the South Florida area, this is the spot to be.
Our entire motto has been to stand above the rest by being unique.
With over 30,000 square feet, we are able to offer a wide array of training programs that will not only improve your physical fitness, but your overall lifestyle, and general health. Fully equipped with showers, offices, changing rooms, a free-weights section, octagon, football combine turf, soccer field (coming soon), two fully-sized basketball courts, punching bags, weight machines and more, all your fitness goals can be achieved under one single roof.
We’re not just a rented warehouse with some lights and weights, or a weight-room in some average strip mall. We are located inside Florida’s biggest indoor amusement center, Xtreme Action Park. Located at 5300 Powerline Road in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we are the latest edition to Xtreme’s most exhilarating attractions that is taking the state by storm. By adding a fully-fledged training complex to the encompassing venue, XAP can now resoundingly say it stands above the rest.
Hardknocks 365 definitely puts the “Xtreme”, in Xtreme Action Park.
Michael Johnson is the main event at the TUF Finale tomorrow, so we got some work in at the UFC Performance Institute, and put on a little show for the fans at the Open Workouts.
We headed up to Toronto to see the grand opening of Marine Kickboxing, our HKickboxing affiliate. I couldn't come by myself, so I had to bring Robin Van Roosmalen, Sean Soriano, and Michael Johnson. Video below!
Always good to get out of the gym for a bit and enjoy the beach we have just outside our door. Getting Michael Chandler ready for his Bellator bout on June 24
Always nice to have Luke Rockhold down here, adding to the talents of Sean Soriano, Kamaru Usman, and everyone else.

Been a long road my friend. Thank you for all the memories.
Instead, we turned our hotel suite into a gym.
And we always make sure to keep it simple.
Up here in NorCal for Mitrione v Fedor and while I'm here, got a chance to work with ex NFL star Patrick Willis.
Ryan LaFlare and Dennis Bermudez came down to train for the week. Escape the NY winter. Some sun and some hard work.
Always good training when Luke Rockhold is in town. Plus I get to throw on the gloves and move around a bit.
