Top UK MMA heavyweight, Oli Thompson, has signed functional fitness specialists, Jordan Fitness to assist with his strength and conditioning training. Jordan Fitness is the official supplier for Combat Ready Training, run by Strength & Conditioning coach, Christian Vila. Christian is now preparing Oli for his next bout against Damian Grabowski at the MMC Fight Club event on the 16th December at London’s Indigo2 Arena.

Jordan Fitness is supplying the Combat Ready Training camps with functional fitness equipment including sandbags, balance trainers, sonic chute, speed/agility ladder.

Oli Thompson was last in action at CSMMA 3 in November, where he scored a first round stoppage over Ivan Pioneer. Prior to that, he had two fights in the UFC, dropping losses to Phil De Fries and Shawn Jordan earlier this year. Those losses followed a five fight-winning streak Thompson had built up competing on the regional circuit here in the UK. Oli now has the chance to regain some of that momentum with a big win over Grabowski.

Oli, Britain’s Strongest Man in 2006, is a former UCMMA heavy weight champion and is the current CSMMA Heavyweight Champion and is keen to get back on the UFC roster.

"I've trusted Jordan to supply the best quality training equipment for over five years now. Their range is expanding all the time, keeping up with current trends in functional training. You'll struggle to find a better company with such great customer service!" says Coach, Christian Vila (pictured, above right)
