I landed here in San Jose, California yesterday morning at 7:30 am and hit the ground running. Typically, I’d prefer to fly in the day before the first events start, but it’s always nice when there’s a flight available to get me there in plenty of time on the day of the event. In this case, I had plenty of time to work on the second edit from the UFC on Fox fights before walking down to the Heroes Gym just a block from the hotel.
The gym provided a very pleasing setting for the workouts. The sidewalls were a nice red brick and the open beam ceiling had huge skylights that provided more than enough light to get creative. I still fired the flash on some of the shots, as well.
Of all the fighters scheduled, Urijah Faber was really the only one that worked out for any considerable amount of time. Dan Henderson did not work out at all, so that’s why there are no photos of him.
