    It has worked for many fighters like Jones and Franklin and they wont have to risk their health. Now we have to worry if Khabib vs Gaethje fight may be cancelled because Kahbib training partner is off the card due to being taken to the hospital.

    I've trained my boxing off of Youtube and I have to say it is a great tool to use, anyone else train any martial arts off of youtube and what are your results?

    Jon Jones did it before it was cool.

    It's still cool dude, I still use it. Going to work on my tdd one of these days. Would you happen to know which video is good for TDD?

    I legitimately can't tell if you're serious or trolling. Sure Youtube can be used to get a grip of techniques but it's no replacement for an actual training camp with coaches and other fighters.
    And no sorry can't recommend anything.

    For grappling training you absolutely need a partner to train with and given Khabib and Justin are going to both be training their grappling extensively (For different reasons), I don't that that would work.

    I am not denying it is possible but have you had any success with the boxing you learned on youtube vs an actual boxer trained in a gym?

    No, i havent had a fight since I was in Junior High. I did get KO'ed by a sucker punch though but that was cause I wasnt looking and the guy who KO'ed me was a boxer who was boxing outside with his buddy. Long story.

    As far as learning from videos James Thompson pre-dated Jones by a good bit and Evan Tanner pre-dated him.
