Fresh off victories with fighters Carlos Condit and Melvin Guillard, we present to you another installment of our Training Camp series for AOL MMAfighting.com, with coach Greg Jackson. Usually, we follow fighters as they train but we were kindly given access to Jackson & Winklejohn’s MMA in Albuquerque, NM for two days to get a glimpse of the wonderful madness in a camp overflowing with top-notch fighters.
Thanks so much to Greg Jackson and everyone at Jackson’s MMA for trusting us and allowing Casey to shoot to his heart’s content. We really appreciate the inside look we’ve been given and the generosity of every fighter and trainer there. Special thanks to Jon Jones, Tom “Kong” Watson, Tim Kennedy, Jake Murphy, Kyle Noke, Joey Villaseñor, and Keith Jardine (for being okay with us being in the way), and the dear young Russian fighter whose name I wrote down and then lost. Thanks also to Kelly for saving us with protein bars after Casey and I hadn’t eaten after our morning hike and Jules for EVERYTHING, and for knowing where Greg’s wallet was all along.
We’re glad we get to share our visit to Jackson’s MMA in Albuquerque with you all. If you’re in the UK, look for Ben Fowlkes’ upcoming feature article on Greg Jackson in the next issue of Men’s Fitness.
AND! A super big thank you to MMAFighting.com for supporting us in our desires to make videos like these and cheers to more in the future.
