UFC 164 Behind the Scenes Photo Gallery
8/27/13 to 8/31/13 – Milwaukee, WI
These images give a behind the scenes look of the week leading up to UFC 164 in Milwaukee. While Louis Gaudinot was making his final preparations for his bout, the team was invited to train at local MMA gym Roufussport. Tiger Schulmann along Louis’s training partners, Jimmie Rivera and Nick Pace, and trainers Ron Schulmann and Ray Velez made numerous appearances at the gym throughout the week for training, sparring, and grappling Sessions. Roufussport is home of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and Bellator welterweight Champion Ben Askren.
What made this week even more special, was that many of the top UFC fighters also made stops at the gym to get their training in while waiting to corner their teammates on Fight Night. With Fights on horizon for Jimmie Rivera and Nick Pace, the two great some great sparring and grappling rounds in with some of the best in the world including Uriah Faber, TJ Dillashaw, and Sergio Pettis. The week would also include gym appearances by Joe Rogan and Ben Askren. Tiger Schulmann’s would like to Duke Roufus for opening his doors to his gym and the hospitality while the team was there training. We hope to see more cross-training between the two gyms in near future.
