Chatri Sityodtong, CEO of Evolve MMA:
“It is a huge win-win partnership for the two best martial arts organizations in the world to join hands in this amazing collaboration. It makes perfect sense for Jacksons MMA as the #1 in the West and Evolve MMA as the #1 in the East to enter into a strategic partnership to help each other. In my opinion, Greg Jackson is the top MMA coach in the world. It is a true honor and privilege for our fighters at Evolve MMA to learn at Jacksons MMA alongside some of the very best in the industry. I also look forward to welcoming Greg Jackson’s top students at Evolve MMA such as UFC Champions Jon Jones, Georges St Pierre, Carlos Condit, Donald Cerrone, Clay Guida, and others. Our world championship coaching staff here at Evolve MMA will do everything to help Greg’s students to add to their arsenal of tools for the cage. In fighting, the best attract the best. And the best produce the best.”
Jackson’s MMA CEO Greg Jackson:
“It is a wonderful partnership that truly brings together the best of the West and the best of the East in terms of martial arts knowledge and experience. Both Chatri and myself feel that it will be strongly beneficial to our fighters and to our respective teams to learn through this unique training experience. The combined wealth of championship experience from both of our coaching staffs will really accelerate the learning, progress, and development of fighters for both Evolve MMA and Jacksons MMA. I am really looking forward to working more closely with the best team in Asia.”
