For my fight with Kenny Florian, I had the chance to work with some new equipment that I didn’t have access to in the past. Here is a video of me training in High Gear… its about 4 minutes long and shows how much more ground and pound stuff you can work. This was when I was about a month out from my fight.

I honestly think high gear has helped my ground and pound dramatically. Only in a fight could I really let go and throws punches and elbows the way I wanted too. Most elbow pads are terrible and slip off and its only a matter of time before someone gets cut. But using High Gear let use many more of my weapons and with more force. The stuff gets tow huge thumbs up from me and I will be using High Gear in training for every fight from here on out.
