New, 4 comments

There are mixed martial arts (MMA) gyms, then there's Jackson Wink Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Earlier this year, dynamic duo Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn, opened the doors to their massive new facility to accommodate it's ever-growing roster of fighters that already includes the likes of Jon Jones, Carlos Condit, Diego Sanchez, Alistair Overeem, Andrei Arlovski and of course, newly-crowned women's bantamweight champion, Holly Holm.

According to AXS TV's Inside MMA, it cost over $3 million to finish the 30,000 square foot project.

And by the looks of it, it's worth every penny, as the massive gym not only has your state of the art training equipment, but it also has an onsite physical therapist, dorms for athletes, pro shop, seven full-size apartments, and much, much more.

As far as the athletes go, the gym is home to over 100 fighters from all over the world ranging from amateurs to the cream of the crop, so finding a suitable training partner is never a problem at Jackson Wink.

A few days after striking coach Mike Winekljohn helped Holly Holm upset Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in Melbourne Australia (see it here), he took MMA Fighting on a private tour of the state of the art facility which he helped build.

A jack of all trades indeed.

So jump inside and see where some of the best fighters in all of MMA sharpen their skills, relax and lay their heads at night.
