It's no secret that Mixed Martial Arts is the fastest growing sport today, and a big portion of the credit is well deserved by the Trainers. By providing the fuel to their Fighters, they have helped increase the reach of the sport to a global audience and made the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) a household name. According to ESPN's MMA Live, Firas Zahabi, Cesar Gracie and Greg Jackson are amongst the Top 3. See video here. Who do you think is the World's Best MMA Coach?

There are downsides to training far from home. Ryan Ford knows this, and his family does, too. But the upside for him is that if you're going to be away from your comfort zone, you might as well do it with some of the best in the world. And that's just what Ford believes he's doing now that he has taken up with the team at Tristar Gym in Montreal. Ford (18-4 MMA, 1-0 BFC) meets Kyle Baker (12-6 MMA, 0-0 BFC) on Friday at Bellator 79, which takes place at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada. The main card airs on MTV2 following prelims on Spike.com. The whole card also can be watched on MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Ford hopes to keep making a solid impression on Bellator after winning his debut with a second-round TKO of Luis Ramos this past May. Taking out Baker could put him in line to get into the promotion's next welterweight tournament in 2013. And Ford credits Tristar and coach Firas Zahabi for helping him make a big transformation in fight preparation. "I basically fought my first 17 fights just training with local guys in my area," Ford told MMAjunkie.com. "Now I'm training at one of the best gyms in the world at Tristar alongside some of the best welterweights in the sport. Right now, we have Georges (St-Pierre) getting ready for his fight and Rory (MacDonald) getting ready for his fight, along with all of the other animals that are down there. "It's a blessing that Tristar took me in. This is my second home now and the results speak for themselves. You can see the difference between me a year ago and the level I'm performing at today." St-Pierre, of course, is preparing to return after a 19-month layoff to defend his UFC welterweight title against Carlos Condit, and MacDonald will face future UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn in December. Not bad running mates to have for a fight camp. "This is the toughest training camp I've ever been in," Ford said. "Not only because I want to impress everyone, but also because you have these monsters in here that are training for their own fights." But the Canadian, who never has fought outside of his home country in his pro career, also has to make sacrifices to roll with a crew like the one at Tristar. Montreal is a lengthy flight from his home in Edmonton, Alberta. So he hopes the sacrifice of being away from family for so long is worth it. "Being so far away from my wife and children has kept me that much more motivated while I've been training for this fight," he said. "Come fight night, it will be six and a half weeks since I've seen them. It has me really looking forward to getting in that cage, putting it on Kyle Baker and getting back home to see my babies." And Ford plans on putting it on Baker by doing what he's done all along in his career, and that's never stopping. Ford has won six of his past seven fights, and just one of his 18 victories has been by decision. "It's a fight, so you better be ready to put me away or I'm going to end up putting you away," Ford said. "Luis Santos caught me with a good head kick, but I was able to gather my senses and bring the fight to him. I stayed in the fight and I was able to take care of business in the second round. "I just feel like you're never going to be able to break me in the cage. No matter what you do to me, I'm not going to break unless you completely put me out. I'm going to keep coming at you until one of us goes down." Ford's fight against Baker opens up the main card of Bellator 79. Source: MMAJunkie.com

There will be no shortage of buildup for Georges St-Pierre's return to the octagon. St-Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC), the UFC's welterweight champion, returns next month in a title unification fight against interim champ Carlos Condit (28-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC) at UFC 154. Ahead of the fight, FUEL TV will air a live special showing St-Pierre's training from his home gym in Montreal. "Training Day: Inside Tristar Gym Live" will air Nov. 5 at 12:30 p.m. ET in a one-hour live broadcast, FUEL officials confirmed to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Following the live broadcast, replays are planned for later in the day on Nov. 5, as well as additional times prior to UFC 154, FUEL TV officials said, though those replay dates and times are still to be determined. The one-hour special will be hosted by former UFC lightweight and featherweight title challenger Kenny Florian, who currently is the co-host of FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight." According to FUEL TV officials, the special will be the first of its kind for the cable network that will give viewers an all-access look at the gym during the heart of a training day. Viewers will get "an unprecedented, never-before-seen look inside one of the top gyms and see one of the biggest stars of the UFC as he prepares for the biggest fight of his career." UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Bell Centre in Montreal, which is St-Pierre's home city. The fight will be GSP's first in 19 months following a long layoff with a pair of knee injuries, subsequent surgery and rehab. In addition to St-Pierre headlining a card in front of his Montreal home fans for the third time in the UFC, the live special also may include glimpses at the training of Francis Carmont, John Makdessi and Mark Bocek, all of whom train at Tristar. St-Pierre last fought at UFC 129 in Toronto, where he defended his title for the sixth time with a unanimous decision win over Jake Shields. Since reclaiming the title at UFC 83 with a TKO win over Matt Serra, who had beaten St-Pierre in one of the biggest upsets in MMA history at UFC 69, St-Pierre has defended the belt against Jon Fitch, B.J. Penn, Thiago Alves, Dan Hardy, Josh Koscheck and Shields – opponents who currently have combined to win 75 percent of their career fights. With St-Pierre on the shelf, Condit won the interim title against Nick Diaz with a unanimous decision win at UFC 143 this past February. He then elected to wait for St-Pierre to heal and rehab for the title unification fight rather than fight in the meantime. So Condit will be coming off a layoff of more than nine months, though that is nothing new to him. For his past four fights, Condit had layoffs that included nine months, eight and a half months and seven months. For more on UFC 154, stay tuned to the UFC Rumors section of the site.

Horodecki benefits from time at Tristar Gym
10.19.2012
By Dwight Wakabayashi Courtesy: Sportsnet.ca London, Ont., fighter Chris Horodecki is set to make his debut in the Score Fighting Series this Friday night at the RBC Centre in Sarnia, Ont. The man nicknamed "The Polish Hammer" will be in the main event of SFS 6 as he takes on Calgary's Brad Cardinal. Horodecki (18-4-1) is known for his aggressive and technical striking and willingness to bang it out. Cardinal replaces original opponent Kalvin Hackney and is a tough veteran of some good battles, come out on both ends. The IFL and WEC veteran fights out of the Adrenaline Training Center in London and SFS is a very solid Toronto-based promotion that puts on shows throughout Ontario. It's the perfect place to be for the young but experienced fighter. A natural fit for each other. "It's great man, you know it’s such an opportunity for me to be headlining a card locally, and hopefully this sets something up for London, and have one in my home town," he said in a phone interview this week. "It's ideal, you get the home town crowd, and really the exposure is huge man. How many times is it we see fighters that are the best fighters in the world but they’re not on TV so people can't see, so nobody knows about them." Coming off a loss in his last fight, it was time to spice it up a bit and his training has taken him away from Adrenaline briefly and landed him in Montreal, at the elite and famed Tristar Gym under Firas Zahabi. "Yeah I spent a month there. I went there with (teammate and Bellator lightweight) Chad Laprise. I just needed a change more than anything. I got invited there after my last fight by Eric O'Keefe. Actually he reached out to me earlier when (former coach) Shawn (Tompkins) passed (away in August 2011). He was very respectful and just said, 'Hey, our gym is always open to you.' "I had seen him a bunch of times like at my last fight he was in the same corner as me with Nordine Taleb and then after my fight, with what happened I thought it might be a good idea. Then I saw him two weeks later at Wreck (MMA) in Ottawa, so I said to him, ‘Yeah, I'm coming out,’ and me and Chad went down stayed for two weeks and loved the environment and the atmosphere. "The incredibly high level of trainers they have just draws people there and the sparring partners, everyone comes sharp as steel. Everyone's level just goes up. "Firas' teaching method is very cerebral and he's very to the point and very detailed and I really enjoyed his coaching style." The change and trip to Tristar has other benefits as well. "When you get to train and spar with GSP it doesn't get much better than that." Winless in his last two fights Horodecki wants to get something going. What better place to do it than in his own backyard in Sarnia. Cardinal is a last-minute change but it doesn't seem to matter much. "It's no big deal man, I was supposed to fight him last year but the timing wasn't right," Horodecki said. The timing is right now and he seems fresh and up for the challenge. "I'm just focused right now on Friday night. That's all I got, that's all I'm thinking about." "I'm expecting to finish him man. He's a tough, he's durable he's been in a lot of fights and wars but I'm looking to come out and put him out. I wanna finish him and I wanna finish him with a bang." Here is the full SFS 6 card: Main Card: 150lbs- Chris Horodecki (18-4-1) vs. Brad Cardinal (16-8) 145lbs- John Fraser (10-4) vs. Tyler Toner (13-4) 145lbs- Lyndon Whitlock (7-2) vs. Rick Glenn (11-2) 155lbs- Jorge Britto (12-8) vs. Tony Hervey (14-12) 170lbs- Gerald Meerschaert (15-5) vs. Sergej Juskevic (11-7) 145lbs- Jesse Gross (6-3) vs. Seiji Sugiman-Marangos (5-1) Preliminary Card: 155lbs- Jason Meisel (3-1) vs. Eric Attard (4-3) 155lbs- Joel Paquette (0-1) vs. Allan Wilson (2-0) 170lbs- Josh Taveirne (2-3) vs. Brett Biederman (1-3) 125lbs- Tyler Kirk (0-0) vs. Malcom Gordon (0-0) 145lbs- Kyle Nelson (1-0) vs. Jo Pehtatagoose (1-0) 170lbs- Kyle Post (0-0) vs. Scott Hudson (0-1) Dwight Wakabayashi is a featured columnist at Bleacher Report UFC and regular contributor to Sportsnet.ca's UFC section
