When you watch auto racing, it’s a marvel of technology and science combined with the a driver with raw skills that blend in a winning combination that can only be achieved with teamwork. Mike Winkeljohn and Holly Holm are that perfect combo.
Mike Winkeljohn (in auto terms) is the crew chief and master strategist when it comes to his fighters getting properly ‘tuned’ up before a fight. But that’s just a small fraction of what Winkeljohn offers and why this coach is head and shoulders above most in the fight game.
Winkeljohn was the man behind the fight and preparation that night at UFC 193 at Melbourne Australia, paving the way for a Holly Holm victory resulting in the largest upset in UFC history. Winkeljohn on the other hand knew that the preparation and training leading up to the title event was well calculated and executed to plan.
Champions are trained not born, you earn your way through blood, sweat and tears. You forge your legacy through trust of your team and coaches, Mike Winkeljohn is that man you can trust. Just ask Holly “The Preachers Daughter” Holm.
It’s not too late to recognize the “Coach of the Year” Mike Winkeljohn with Jackson-Wink MMA
