    I have never doubted these guys' abilities to coach and create great fighters, they aren't one of the top camps in the world for nothing. but i was just curious what their backgrounds were if anyone knows. i know Greg Jackson has his own form of jiu-jitsu (i don't know how to spell it so i'm not even gunna try), but where did he learn it from. and was Winkeljohn a successful kickboxer? someone fill me in please.

    Not sure of the answer to the question but I heard Bas say in an interview that everything he knows of MMA and fighting in general, was self taught so if he can do it, I guess others can too.

    His body was breaking down by the time he got to the UFC. He tried a comeback and couldn't fight through the pain. His knees are bone and bone and he said he has tendonitis so bad it makes him want to cry.
