I do not need to go into any length to explain who Greg Jackson is, do I?
Well, alongside Mike Winklejohn, Greg Jackson is the most recognizable and successful trainer in all of Mixed Martial arts. And I dare someone to prove otherwise
Jackson’s strategies for each of his fighters are beauty in combat form, at least in my perception. The most noticeable feature of of his system is grappling/submission wrestling.
Knowing this, it would be safe to assume Brian Stann should be one of the better grapplers in the division; however, maybe he’s not getting the attention he needs to truly perfect this portion of his game?
Just look at the list of fighters currently in the Jackson’s MMA stable (it’s actually ridiculous): Jon Jones (current UFC LHW Champ), George St. Pierre (current UFC WW Champ), Carlos Condit (current UFC Interim WW Champ)… Oh, you want me to go on? Donald Cerrone, Diego Sanchez, Brendon Shaub, Shane Carwin, Keith Jardine, Clay Guida, Nate Marquardt… Really? Keep going? I think you get the picture.
