    So I've been doing research to find out exactly where Mark Henry's gym is located and what's It called. It turns out that he doesn't have an official gym name or location. The only business name that Mark is associated with publicly is a restaurant he owns by the name of Pino's Pizza. All of his fighters and Mark regularly promote the business name on social media. Instead of giving a shout out to Henry MMA or something like that they instead name drop Pino's pizza. So that's what it is.

    Pino's Pizza is the second best gym currently behind AKA. The big names consist of:
    Frankie Edgar
    Eddie Alvarez
    Edson Barboza
    Marlon Moraes
    And recently Chris Weidman has come on.

    Pino's pizza has a hell of a roster of current and future champs that I believe is only surpassed by AKA.

    Another thing I've noticed is that the guys who come to the gym end up actually improving. Both Alvarez and Barbosa have noticeably gotten better since coming to Pino's full time.

    So yeah, congrats to Mark for building a great gym from scratch and keeping a low profile in the process.

    Also, Sherdoggers should be Pino's fan because it is the only gym that doubles as a pizzeria. Although I'm sure you Sherdoggers are more interested in the Pizzeria part.

    Diaz's first gym was a mexican restaurant, and the only reason he went there was for the free food.
    Seems legit.

    Matt Serra would have been a HW if he trained there.

    @Macalpinerules it's really not a good day on Sherdog until you make a thread. Please never stop making threads.

    I'm assuming training resembles something like this?

    Pino's? Lol. Sounds like a retarded version of Gino's, which is a respectable pizza joint name.
