Ever wonder what it’s like to be a fighter? Athletes have to make sacrifices to reach the pinnacle of their respective sports,but in some cases the sacrifice is even greater. In recent years, MMA has seen an influx in Russian and Dagestani fighters, and they’ve been doing quite well. The sacrifice that they make, living in the U.S., far away from their families, has only been eased to some degree by the brotherhood that has developed among them. .This exclusive footage provides you with an insider’s perspective on what these men go through to be the fighters that they are. The focus of this footage is on three men: Adlan Amagov, Rustam Khabilov, and Imanali Gamzatkhanov as they prepared at the famed Jackson/Winklejohn gym for their fights which took place last year.
