What do Gray Maynard and BJ Penn have in common?

Whatever it is, it would appears as if Gray is determined to increase that list.

In a report coming out of MMAfighting.com it was made public that former two-time UFC title challenger, Gray “The Bully” Maynard has finally settled in on a training home following his departure from Xtreme Couture after his last bout and his first professional defeat.

After traveling the globe and cross-training everywhere, Maynard has settled in at San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy and now joins the ranks with other top wrestlers competing in MMA such as Daniel Cormier, Jon Fitch, Cain Velasquez and “King Mo.”

That’s not that surprising, but what did come as a brief shock was the Maynard has now enlisted the help of famed strength and conditioning coaches, Gary and Marv Marinovich.
