It’s always very interesting to see what goes on in camp as fighters prepare for competition. If we are lucky, we get to see how teammates from different weight classes and different promotions do in their training together.

In this video from the Anatomy of a Fighter YouTube channel, we get a glimpse into one of the sparring sessions at Henri Hooft and Gilbert Burns’ Florida gym, the Combat Club.

We see stars from the UFC including former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold, Volkan Oezdemir, Michael Johnson, Bellator heavyweight Matt Mitrione, and Titan FC welterweight champion Jason Jackson all sparring during what looks to be a typical day of training.

As you can see, some of the training partners take a rather light approach to sparring while others turn it up a few levels. These types of training sessions from inside fight camps are intriguing to watch as you see fighters from different promotions and weight classes duking it out with one another.
