Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson told everyone a few weeks ago that he would be spending his whole training camp preparing for his UFC 135 light heavyweight title fight with Jon Jones in Denver at a new facility. The facility was built by MusclePharm, one of the biggest UFC sponsors out there. Matthew Roth gave some insight into their finances a couple of weeks ago. This 35,000 square foot facility is pretty crazy, and MMA Bay filmed a video that serves as a tour of sorts. It's set to some truly horrible music though, so you might want to turn the sound off.
For those of you that have no interest in watching a gym tour or listening to horrible music, I'll give you a description of some of the unique features instead. It has an underwater running machine, which I've never heard of until right now. Can't you just run in a pool? It has a full cinema to allow fighters like Rampage to watch tape with their whole crew. It has a laboratory on site with body scanner and stuff like that, which is impressive. And there's a mini football field in the middle in case they feel like tossing around the ol' pigskin. Pretty snazzy isn't it?
