    Gym fees, as in the facilities probably. He is training under the roof of a really really nice gym, so that is probably what that 13% is.

    You have to think the only fighters who get "free" gym time are the fighters who started their own, and even then, you have to run the gym of course.

    Let's see how fast this devolves into a "Greg Jackson is the source of every problem in MMA" shit/hate fest.

    So we're trying to put the focus everywhere but the UFC? Interesting.

    Whoops I read that wrong. I thought he meant an additional 3% for some reason. You are right.

    there are other camps, obviously he saw Jackson and decided that the package was worth the price. He's a fully grown man and made a decision, has nobody to blame on that end and Jackson is charging what the market allows him to, similar to how a fighter or any other human being does.

    Does Tim still train full time at jackson's? I imagine fighters wanting to train at 4 different gyms for technique and then more gyms for fitness contributes to a lot of gym fees. And then there's renting out space for personal use if a fighter wants to hold their own mini camp.

    13% is ridiculous. He shouldn't pay any more than a new 17 year old kid using the facilities that's there for the same amount each day. Of course, he should pay more for Jackson's services and a percentage is fine if thats how greg charges.
