I know these ufc performance centers exist but do real ufc fighters actually train at them? Or are they simply just a marketing tool for ppl to join so the average Schlub can say he trains UFC? Stories keep coming out saying "I wish the ufc would have offered me something" apparently they offered him nothing. If they offered him free training for a year, free room and board and then like a decent introductory contract of like 80k/80k. That would be totally worth it. They spend more than that in marketing alone. The ufc could have easily have spent a couple hundred grand to get this guy trained. Hes a hard worker. You train this guy 6 days a week for the next 12 to 18 months, he will become a scary scary man. But you do it on the UFCs dime. Yes it can fail miserably. Perhaps you just sign him for 6 months and see how he reacts to punches and kicks. You can end the "program" any time you like. Then you can say the ufc has a recent gold medal winner in the Olympics. The wwe offered him a guaranteed 6 figure development contract. The ufc needs to do something similar, especially if someone is interested in a career in mma. I mean hes still young, he can do 5 years in wwe and still be 26 in those 5 years but what kind of injuries will he have gone through at that point? I just wish Dana wasnt as greedy as he was. And maybe it's not all Dana's fault. WME as well.
