MMA is literally taking over the world. A bold statement perhaps, but anyone who puts boxing above it in terms of a ‘specatator’ sport, or on pure ability has probably spent one too many rounds in ring. Yes boxing still brings in the coin, which amazes me as it does most, but I am pretty sure those days are on their way out and the tide is turning.

Gonzo Fit: Urijah Faber

MMA is literally taking over the world. A bold statement perhaps, but anyone who puts boxing above it in terms of a ‘specatator’ sport, or on pure ability has probably spent one too many rounds in ring. Yes boxing still brings in the coin, which amazes me as it does most, but I am pretty sure those days are on their way out and the tide is turning.

Wherever you look nowadays, you will see an element of MMA somewhere, your latest energy drink, your lastest peice of clothing and of course some of the very best sports brands in the world.

K-SWISS are just one of those brands. This year they have put alot of time and effort into Gonzo World, their new pet project. It’s all about taking things further, doing something, but then doing it even better.

“GONZO’s about taking things all the way to the top of the stairs, deciding the staircase is way too short, building an extra stair on top of the existing staircase and taking things that one step further”

Geeky, pale and un-educated (we assume its a character…) Jamie Howard has been blasting his way filming a wave of films for the new series, so far including musical talents such as Lil B and Tempa T, but now a much harder task has been put in front of him. Get fit (or perhaps die tryin’) with all round UFC good guy, and MMA veteran (young vet!) Urijah Faber. And the current The Ultimate Fighter coach goes all out!

The video itself is pretty cool, too long to be a viral and too short to be a masterclass but want a funny insight into MMA training and some of what it takes to become a professional fighter? You could do a lot worse than looking right here.

In the rest of series Jamie will be put through his paces by Elite Training, followed up by Mr Michael White.
