How about this feedback from The Ultimate Fighter 8 (UFC, MMA) fighter Tom Lawlor as he prepared for his winning fight on the show’s finale:

tom lawlor's ufc strength training

“As a MA student in Sports & Fitness, I am a huge fan of anything related to Strength & Conditioning. Additionally, I have been a huge fan of the website. I immediately reached out to Smitty for help in organizing my workouts for what I knew would be the biggest fight of my life.”

“Come fight time, I felt stronger and fresher than I have for any of my past fights and was able to impose my will on an opponent who was 4 inches taller, and at least 15 lbs heavier come fight time. There are a lot of people who have helped me get to the level of competition that I am at today (the UFC), and Jim Smith is among those people. I will undoubtedly be looking to keep “Smitty” on my staff of coaches as I continue in the sport of mixed martial arts.”

“I’ve followed Smitty for some time now and their revolutionary training ideas are (and have been for some time) shaping the future of combat athletics. This ebook is no exception. When I received it, I was amazed at the size of it. It is a veritable encyclopedia of brutal and effective drills to blast your training through the roof. I’m no fan of the term functional as I think it’s over used by the fitness industry – but this book has functional drills that have a real carry over to combat sports. Buy it if you want to reach the next level in your game – if you don’t, the opposition will!!!”

    Frequently Asked Question 3:
    What happened to Building the Ultimate MMA Athlete (BTUMA), your original manual?

    Answer: Blunt Force Trauma is the 3rd, Updated edition of BTUMA. I have updated and expanded the original manual over the last 3 years and NOW IT IS HUGE, over 800 pages of quality content.

    Frequently Asked Question 4:
    Are there workouts and conditioning routines?

    Answer: Of course, there are tons of conditioning circuits and strength training workouts throughout the manual. But the best thing is that I show you how to lay out the programs and how to modify the conditioning routines according to your fighter’s, grappler’s or wrestler’s specific needs.
