One thing I like about watching him on UFC embedded etc is his variety, amd seeing his fighters training together and having fun, like an exclusive club of the best of the best.

Well I never…

“Trevor Wittman has created two courses alongside Justin Gaethje that can be taken online and in the comfort of your own home. They are called The Footwork Blueprint and Secrets Of a Champion Balance and are available via the Dynamic Striking website.”

Usman had to almost force Wittman into training him, wouldn’t take no for an answer apparently 🤯

“The way he asked me, it was hard for me to say no – he forced me into the relationship in a great way.“ - Wittman

He was recently diagnosed Dupuytren’s contracture (can’t be good for holding pads)

Dupuytren's contracture is a condition in which one or more fingers become permanently bent in a flexed position. It is named after Guillaume Dupuytren, who first described the underlying mechanism of action, followed by the first successful operation in 1831 and publication of the results in The Lancet in 1834. It usually begins as small, hard nodules just under the skin of the palm, then worsens over time until the fingers can no longer be straightened. While typically not painful, some aching or itching may be present. The ring finger followed by the little and middle fingers are most commonly affected. The condition can interfere with activities such as preparing food and writing.

in terms of Rose and Gaethje?

yeah. guess can't always be perfect record. it feels like both fighters were over-strategizing in some ways. Rose's main coach is her husband tho.
