UFC Heavyweights from New England: MMA Training Springfield, MA

UFC Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga & Christian Morecraft

On the evening of Wednesday August 8, 2012 Team Link in Ludlow MA was filled with talent. Not only did you have the East Coast’s only UFC heavyweight fighters,  there was also 7 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts together in one gym. Ludlow is a small town in Western Mass for which Team Link MMA and soccer are two main things it is known for. (on a different note, Thursday August 9, 2012 the Stanley Cup was in Ludlow because the LA Kings General Manger, Dean Lombardi, grew up there….cool!) Having the opportunity to witness this type of training is incredible, the place was shook as almost 3,000 pounds of skilled fighters went at it. Most of whom that were there are also preparing for there own fights that will be happening in the very near future. For a full listing of these fights click this link MMA classes Springfield MA

Gabriel Gonzaga is preparing for UFC 153, which will be held in his home county on October 13, 2012 at the HBSC Arena in Rio de Janeriro, Brazil. He will be  facing Geronimo Dos Santos, a powerful new comer to the UFC. With the start of Gonzaga’s official training camp, Team Link is always able to pull together a group of great athletes to push each other to there limits and beyond. In fact the East Coast’s only UFC Heavyweights both currently live and train in Massachusetts.  It was great to these two cross train together. Rumors say this may be common re-occurrence, we will see.
