Not all relationships last, right? That seems to be the case when it comes to Elevation Fight Team in Colorado. According to a report by FOX Sports, the fight team, which includes notable UFC fighters T.J. Dillashaw, Matt Brown, and Neil Magny, is parting ways with MusclePharm’s super facility near Denver in effort to move into a more “traditional setting.”
“As a team, Elevation Fight Team has decided to move all of it’s training from the MusclePharm Facility to the chain of Easton Training Centers located throughout Colorado,” wrote head coach Elliot Marshall in a message to FOX Sports. “The partnership Elevation has had with MusclePharm over the last 4 years has been awesome and is something we are all appreciate greatly. That being said, the time to move to more of a traditional setting is now.
“By moving our training to the Easton Training Centers, our fighters will now reap the benefits of having a full curriculum of classes and many different locations to choose from. The fight team will still have 1 hour a day Pro Team training that will take place at Easton’s Denver location, but the fighters will have the opportunity to take classes throughout the day at the location most convenient to them. We are excited to continue building Elevation Fight Team into one of the world’s best fight teams and believe the best is yet to come. Thank you everyone for your continued support.”
Marshall, who recently took over as head coach after Leister Bowling stepped down late last year, confirmed that the entire team will stick together through the move to Easton Training Centers.
Dillashaw, along with a few other Elevation Fight Team members, is sponsored by MusclePharm, so it will be interesting to see if this switch changes his relationship with the supplement company moving forward.
