With UFC Brisbane less than a week away . . . we realized we weren’t very interested. Yeah, there are a few really solid matchups there, but the card doesn’t exactly get the blood pumping at first glance. I mean, it’s fine I guess.

So this week’s Heavy Hands is a rare, non-schedule episode! Free from the strictures of the brutal UFC calendar, we tackle the topic of training camps, coaches, and sparring partners. There are a lot of different approaches to training in MMA, and even more in boxing. Are sparring partners more important than coaches, or can a good trainer beat all? Is MMA best seen as a team sport, or should camps be built around the fighters? Does iron truly sharpen iron? And what is a training camp, anyway?

Unable to resist, of course, we give you the rundown on our favorite matchups from UFC Brisbane at the end of the show. Short and sweet, you know.

Heavy Hands is on Patreon! Make a pledge to support the only show dedicated to the finer points of face-punching (and almost as dedicated to avoiding the topic of Rin Nakai). Rewards and sincere gratitude for the kind few who contribute. Thanks very much!
