The Problem With Training For MMA

In all other sports, conditioning is about injury prevention. As a strength coach, the amount of players you keep off the injured list is how you get paid.

In MMA more fighters are hurt during training camp than they are during the fight. They even state their training camps are way tougher than the fight itself. I've watched conditioning for athletes in other sports, usually it's boring. In MMA its like, they have to keep the conditioning exciting or something.

Something's gotta change.
