It’s no secret that MMA fighters are built different.
Just take this weekend’s fight between Calvin Kattar and Arnold Allen, with the former suffering a serious knee injury – presumed to be a torn ACL – icing it for a minute, then continuing to fight on before the fight was stopped by the referee.
One On One presenter Laura Sanko headed to the UFC’s Performance Institute to find out what it takes to step inside the Octagon.
UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin puts Laura through a range of tests such as the landmine punch throw, the isometric mid-thigh pull and more to find out her counter movement jump profile, maximal glycolytic power and anaerobic glycolytic lactic energy system.
Sounds simple, right?
Watch the video above to see how Laura stacks up against her contemporaries.
