Adrenaline MMA fighter Jordan Cameron is currently in Las Vegas training at some of the best gyms in the world with some of the top fighters from organisations including the UFC.
Jordan has been kind enough to send us blog entries with thoughts of his training and experiences whilst overseas. Keep an eye on this space for regular entries!
Quickly had my last training session this morning after a last minute weekend trip to LA before rushing to get back so I could pack, check out and start the journey home.
There is so much to say about the whole experience but I have to board in 10 mins haha.
I've definitely come along way and have picked up a few things to add to my game.
In saying that it is only more clear to me how much of a world class facility we have at Adrenaline in every aspect but especially in coaching.
I can't wait to come back and walk up those stairs again for the first time in a long time.
See you all soon.
Halfway through my last week of training here in Vegas. I've spent the last 3 weeks at Couture's and have been taking advantage of getting as much training in as I can with up to 3 classes per day.
There have been lots of familiar faces from the UFC and other fight promotions coming through to train, so it's been great to be on the mat and train with them. I've told them all that Hibby thinks they suck so when he comes out here he will have some fun.
The trip is coming to an end, and I'm feeling very lucky to have had the chance to do this and I am forever grateful to all of those who made it possible.
Looking forward to making the journey home on Tuesday.
Had a full on week of grappling, striking, mma and sparring, ending it with a 3 day camp over Friday, Saturday and Sunday with seminars run by Robert Follis, Martin Kampmann and Randy Couture.
Went over some basics and some new material also, plenty of good stuff to bring back home. Even got some Randy Couture cologne so thats for you Aidan you smelly bastard.
Was great to learn from Martin Kampmann also, as he is a long time friend of Trav and a well known fighter ranked in the top 10 welterweights in the world.
Happy new year to everybody, I hope everyone had a good time and has a great year ahead, especially at the gym.
I finished up the year and had a small break over the Christmas and New year period.
I was lucky enough to go to New York and spend some time with my Dad there. We both had an awesome time being tourists and it was also nice to get a small rest.
F*#$ing cold though!
New years on the strip was a bit of fun as you can imagine, must've been a million people there partying and watching the fireworks I was one of them!
Started back training at Randy Coutures gym with classes being taught by many world class and UFC fighters. Randy was even there coaching and helping out during the PRO/AM MMA class.
Looking forward to the last few weeks of training, I will push hard because I know you bastards are waiting to get me back at home. Can't wait!
Just finished rewatching the 100 Man Fight - The Judd Reid story. Anton Cavka generously sent me a few copies to share around.
Reminded me firstly of how much of a machine this man is. Secondly of how lucky I was to be a part of it and to train with Judd.
I'm about half way through a training trip in Las Vegas at the moment, and was starting to feel sore and tired from the training but this has certainly given me a 2nd wind to get back in the gym and work my ass off for the 2nd half.
I love this lifestyle and love what we do! Thanks again to all who made this possible.
I've been sticking to a good routine of training 2 times a day and trying to fit in extra sessions here and there when I can. Still learning lots and meeting plenty of well established fighters.
One day Adrenaline will make its mark here and compete in Las Vegas as it is definitely the MMA capital of the world. I managed to get some tickets to the TUF (The Ultimate Fighter) 18 finale fights at Mandalay Bay over the weekend and got to see the fights live. It was such an awesome atmosphere and felt great to witness it in person. I even got to have dinner with a few of them afterwards.
I have 3 more weeks ahead to push myself and learn as much as I can before a Christmas break for a week or so. After the break and a bit of fun in Vegas I will look to try out some other gyms and learn as much as I can.
I've been here for 3 weeks now, feeling in good form and learning lots from a bunch of different guys, some fighting in the UFC.
Moved into a house with a good group of the other fighters which has made it easier to get around and learn the American ways, burgers and all!
I didn't get to train with him, but GSP (Georges St-Pierre) was at Syndicate throughout the week preparing for the fight on the weekend (UFC 167), it was interesting to watch him train.
Monday's and Friday's are detailed technique sessions which are good to pick up some new and different ways of doing things. Wednesday is a tough wrestling based session for MMA. Tuesday's and Thursday's are drills and sparring sessions, and to finish it off Saturday is a busy 2 hour sparring session.
I'm still doing BJJ at night time also run by Vinny Magalhaes and Fredson Paixao.
I just finished up the last session of my first full week here, ended it with a good 2 hour sparring session
on Saturday. Feeling tired and sore, but very happy from the work done during the week.
Finally got my fitness back and feeling back to normal after adjusting to a different environment.
The week consisted of morning sessions of MMA run by John Wood which includes lots of drills, techniques, sparring, scenarios, fitness basically everything on the feet, ground and wrestling.
You change partners after each round or drill so Im getting to mix up with a lot of different people.
At night im working on my Jiu-jitsu Gi and No-Gi coached by Vinny Magalhaes, same thing mixing it up with different guys and girls.
Looking forward to having some down time over the weekend to relax, check out Vegas and sign Aidan up to some more gay bars haha.
Arrived in LA after a 14 hour flight, then another 2 hour flight to Vegas. On the first day I wondered around like a lost kid in Disney Land haha, what a trip this is going to be.
Day 2 I thought I'd go and check out one of the gyms, Syndicate MMA. They invited me to do the PRO/AM MMA class, an offer I couldn't refuse.
Jumped in and trained alongside many guys competing in the UFC and Bellator, including Hibby's look alike
Roy 'Big Country' Nelson and Forrest Griffin arrived half way through.
I felt the effects of the plane trip and the altitude difference, but went well.
Will feel better in a week or so. Looking forward to whats ahead.
Interested in a tour of our facilites or a free trial class?
Leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
To train and learn under Cris Brown is a chance in a lifetime! Now Cris has opened his own gym and if anyone is serious about their training and wanted to be pushed beyond their limits, Cris' new gym, Adrenaline MMA & Fitness is the place to train.
