Just what the title suggests, who here actually trains in mma and who has had more than 2/3 fights? Because the conversation around here seems more focused on being a good lifter or being a strong guy that does mma rather than being a mixed martiarl artist who is strong. I am on here a great deal more than any of you would like I know yet I have seen less than 5 examples of people saying this lift/routine schedule has benefitted my mma game in X way, or even refrencing the work we do in the rack to the work we do in the cage. This forum IMO has totally forgotten that all this lifting is supposed to be for ONE purpose: being a better fighter. To (mis)quote Kenny Powers: "I am not trying to be the best at exercising, I am trying to be the best at fighting." edit: the # of fights is only important for gauging what works/dosent work for a particular fight camp. Training for a specific fight is the time you grow the most as a fighter. You can train all year but I will take the guy who has been prepping for a specific fight for 6 months instead.
