A day at JG (Jorge Gurgel) MMA Academy: PRO MMA gym spotlight

Jorge Gurgel is one of the friendliest and most accessible fighters in MMA today, so a brief email exchange between PRO MMA (promma.info) and Jorge resulted in an invitation to visit and train at his facility, JG MMA Academy based in West Chester Ohio, just outside of Cincinnati.

Gurgel was at that time, leaving for a trip to Somerville, MA to train at Sidyodtong for his recent Strikeforce fight against Conor Heun, but hooked us up with fighter and gym manager Matt Dunlap.

Dunlap’s journey to managing JG MMA is an interesting one. While serving on his final tour of duty in Iraq with the U.S. Army, Dunlap met Rich Franklin, Randy Couture, and Rachelle Leah who were in country for a USO tour.
