Dan Hardy | Lorenzo Fertitta Is A Beast In The Gym, Glad He’s Not In My Weightclass


“I’m in Vegas full time now. To be honest, if you can’t find it in Vegas, you can’t find it anywhere. I’m constantly surrounded by guys that are at the top level. Frank Mir and I are doing training camp together, so I’ve always got him right there to keep that level high of training, and to make sure that I’m not making any mistakes. I really feel like I’ve got everything I need right here. Being here in Vegas, with one phone call, I can have a bunch of sparring partners in the gym, and they’re all high level guys, guys that fight for the UFC. For me, everything I need is right here in Vegas, and that’s why I moved here.

I train with Frank Mir and his guys at Suffer. It’s a small gym with a great group of guys. I also train at Robert Drysdale’s gym and work with his guys. The last one is the secret gym up at Redrock. We call it the Batcave. This morning it was myself, Frank Mir, Forrest Griffin, and Lorenzo Fertitta (training there). [Lorenzo] is a beast. I say this in all honesty. If there was a real life Batman, Lorenzo Fertitta is that guy. He’s got everything that Batman has. If we ever had a masked avenger running around Vegas, I’d put money on it being Lorenzo. He’s in the gym all the time, and he’s in great shape. He’s lifting every day, he’s hitting pads. I tell you what, I’m glad he’s not in my weight class.”

Talking to bloodyelbow.com, former UFC welterweight number one contender, Dan Hardy talks about his new training home in Las Vegas and one of his training partners, UFC owner, Lorenzo Fertitta.

Is anyone surprised that Fertitta, mixes it up a secret location gym with his top athletes on a regular basis?
