How do you turn 290 lb WWE superstar and human wrecking ball Brock Lesnar into a UFC champion in a relatively short amount of time?
And assuming you have those skills, then how do you then pivot to train smaller fighters, including 155 lb UFC champion Sean Sherk and 115 lb ‘Thug’ Rose Namajunas?
In this interview I go deep into fight strategy and training camp design with MMA master coach Greg Nelson.
From mixing wrestling, striking and jiu-jitsu, to the optimal mix of weights and cardio for conditioning, to his own battle for survival against two back-to-back deadly cancers, I think this is an awesome episode of The Strenuous Life Podcast.
