Brian Stann Explains Move From Greg Jacksons Gym | UFC NEWS


“The shift has gone great. When I’m here in Atlanta, I’ve got an extremely great group of guys – I brought in a great group of guys. There’s a lot of focus, there’s a lot of eyes on every single round I’m putting in. There’s a tremendous focus on drilling and practicing technique every day; it’s an environment that I found where I’m improving in every area faster than I was previously… Fighters, when they get to certain levels, it’s difficult to train for a big fight when you’re in a gym where there are 15 other guys training for a big fight. Sometimes you can get lost in there, and there’s not enough individual attention on what you need to accomplish technically in order to prepare for your fight.”

Greg Jackson is known for building some of the best Mixed Martial Arts fighters in the world. His stable includes the likes of Jon JOnes, Carlos Condit, Diego Sanchez and many more top named fighters. Which is why many have found it puzzling that during his rise through the ranks, UFC middleweight fighter Brian Stann packed up and moved his camp to his hometown in Atlanta, Georgia.

In this interview with UFC.com he gives fans some insight into his decision process.

    we’ll see if this camp is any good when he fights Bisping…
