This past week was FILLED to the brim with activities, ending with the grand opening of the UFC gym in Concord. It was super packed. I don’t know how many people showed up but the gym’s VP Adam Sedlack estimated it at 10,000 people which I might believe considering how difficult it was for me to move around and take photos.
It’s a giant gym full of so so many machines, weights, kettlebells, UFC branded weights and soap, 800+ classes, it’s insane. Insanely fancy, just overwhelming. If I had kids, it would be fun to send them to the kids classes here while I did my own workout.
Here’s MMA Fighting’s video tour (Fanhouse) by Casey:
And here are some photos from the event. Mayhem’s dog, Gator, was ejected after being noticed in the green room/exercise studio, but not before Chuck Liddell could make kissy-faces at it. Gator was his own celebrity, for sure.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting peeks of my two-day shoot at AKA, between stuff I did for Fighters Only Mag and Strikeforce. It was an insane roadtrip and I hope to post more about it soon.
