Nashville MMA’s Luke Sanders recently wrapped up his training camp in preparation for his pro and Strikeforce debut, and he did it training with the best. In addition to his regular training partners at Nashville MMA, Sanders also trained with Chris Wright and others from Knoxville Martial Arts Academy, and recently spent time out at Alliance MMA, training with UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz.
Training with a world champion is as good as it gets in MMA, and Sanders wasted little time soaking up as much knowledge as possible while at Alliance, and also used the experience as a measuring stick to see where he currently stands in his fight career.
Sanders will have a big stage to show how much he has improved his all around game on his home turf in Nashville, facing off against Josh Jarvis this Friday on the Strikeforce Challengers 13 preliminary card.
