    No more lions den try out or big camps. Fighter must scrap money for paid sparring and world class trainers.

    It's going to be like team Manny or Floyd as oppose to team winky dink gym with fighter being some peasant student.

    On the front page of Sherdog, there is a thread title'd "Matt Hughes training for UFC 79". Watch the vids...

    these days fighters train to the highest possible standards and are carefully coached step-by-step to ensure perfect techniques are employed

    Do you know that each mma gym is different? It would be a better question if you ask about the evolution of a specific gym like AKA or TAM.

    I disagree. Top paid fighters might make camps like that, but most fighters will gravitate towards top established gyms or regional versions of those gyms. By version I mean: available specialist trainers (BJJ, wrestling, boxing, thai, S&C...) and affordable living conditions and jobs outside of training.

    Some guys are sparring less, or hardly at all.

    less hard sparring (if any at all)

    more half speed grappling

    more cardio

    more striking with faints

    overall its more expensive
