INteresting.....I wonder if more fighters start to move to cheaper places to live such as Arizona b/c of cost of training and lack of sponsorship now. Alliance is losing some good lighter weight fighters, but I'm sure they'll survive.

Cost of living could definitely be a big factor, shit a nice 5 bedroom is only or less than $300K in most of AZ. I think the all year around weather (which you can get used to) and the idea of being just far enough outside the city but not losing it is a factor as well. Lastly I think like Winkle John's it's free of the daily distractions while still allowing for some decent off time. I definitely don't want to leave out the camp they are building, not to be biased but the fighters they have that are the foundation of their camp are wrestlers, as is their head coach. They have a deep sense of being prepared through hard training and for building tight small teams. CB and Bader are just high enough ranked in the UFC to garnish attention, and much of their big successes have been after the foundation of their camp.
