PRO MMA (promma.info) was on hand today at the Renaissance Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee for the UFC: FIGHT NIGHT 18 open workout with Junie Browning and Ryan Bader, as well as the main event fighters, Martin Kampmann and Carlos Condit.
Each of the guys checked their weight, hit mits, shadow-boxed, rolled around a bit, and spoke with the local television stations. It was a bit surprising to hear some of the questions the local media was asking and really drove home the point that we still have a long way to go in educating the general mainstream public about MMA.
Forrest Griffin was present to support some of his Xtreme Couture friends on the card and coach Shawn Tompkins from Xtreme Couture was there to hold mits and assist with Kampmann and Browning’s workout.
Arizona Combat instructors, Trevor and Todd Lally were helping Bader and Condit with their workout. We also wanted to point out the shirt Condit is wearing in the photographs is the new signature Carlos Condit Tapout T-Shirt and can be purchased at www.tapout.com. (click photos to enlarge)
