The second state of the art UFC gym is scheduled to open this Saturday in Rosemead, CA. This is said to only be the beginning of launches of UFC Gyms, as the UFC has announced that they expect to launch around 400 gyms across the US within the next five years.
In case you are wondering if you can train to be a mma fighter, that is not what they are. Think more of a 24 hour fitness with more martial art classes and an Octagon in the gym. Also promised with membership is the meet and greets with MMA fighters time-to-time.
For the Grand Opening in Rosemead, CA this Saturday (9/18/2010) there will be a huge linu-up of fighters for signings. Expect to see UFC president Dana White, Chuck Liddell, Bruce Buffer, B.J. Penn, Chael Sonnen, Vitor Belfort, Jon Fitch, Jon Jones, Gray Maynard, Dominick Cruz, Arianny Celeste and Kenda Perez.
