Albuquerque, N.M. is home to what is largely regarded as the premier MMA gym in the world. Greg Jackson and Mike Winklejohn continue to produce champions and contenders unlike anyone else in the sport.
2011 saw light heavyweight Jon Jones ascend to the top of the UFC's 205-pound division. Additionally, welterweight Georges St-Pierre retained his title, but in his rear-view mirror is another product of the camp, Carlos Condit.
Rounding out the year's success was winning both weight classes of season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter, as John Dodson and Diego Brandao became reality stars.
If that isn’t enough, the gym continues alliances with Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu in New York City, Tristar Martial Arts Center in Montreal, and Grudge Training Center in Denver.
