Golden Glory to Set Up Satellite Gym in California


(They may be in for a shock to learn that horse meat isn’t available in Cali.)

CagePotato.com was informed last night by the head of Team Golden Glory, Bas Boon, that the revered Dutch fight camp will be opening up a satellite location in Huntington Beach,  California, likely by the end of the year.

According to Boon, the gym will be run by Carlo Dekkers, the brother of retired Golden Glory champion kickboxer and current trainer, Ramon Dekkers and it will act as the base for training camps of team members who will be fighting in North America similar to the one they set up in Pattaya, Thailand for fighters readying to compete in Asia. 

Boon says that several of Golden Glory’s revered trainers like Cor Hemmers and himself and star fighters such as Alistair Overeem, Semmy Schilt, Sergei Kharitonov, Siyar Bahadurzada and Marloes Coenen will make the California facility a regular destination, adding that the team will also be recruiting American fighters through the gym. 

A date for the gym’s opening has not been set, but Boon said it will likely be announced soon when the logistics are finalized.

Golden Glory is probably the worst MMA gym name since "Greg Jackson's."

Another great reason for OverUBEReem to join the UFC:). He needs to find a loophole out of that Strikeforce contract. Here's to hoping they fall under. I honestly think if he joined he would beat Mir, Crocop, Berry, Rothwell, Kongo, Nelson and would stand a very good chance against Velasquez, Carwin and Lesner. They need him in there! Actually Fedor, Werdum and even Rogers would open up the UFC to truly being the best division to watch. Every pay-per-view would have a great HW matchup.

@Dan

macreadyshack is one of the most knowledgeable and funny members of the CP family. He used to be a regular. I enjoy his comments (mostly cuz he was the first to defend my Palhares nut hugging), and I'm not sure why he's leaving, but I too will miss him.

Sorry if this is a n00b thing to say but who the FUCK is macreadysshack? And I dont mean that disrespectfully. Is this one of those, 'you'd have to be a forum reg to know...' situations?

And I like Rex too, in the way I still like my Uncle that molested me. Not that it happened, or didnt happen. I mean I still like the presents and baseball cards he gave me but not so much the depression and thoughts of suicide... fuck im just gonna leave now.

Thanks, yo.

And for the record, I still like you too Rexy. ;)

@ steampunk22

You forced me to come out of retirement to say: "That was fucking hilarious"

You've always been my favorite around here.

Adios, the rest of you. Bye bye again, very talented sell-out MR nuthugger ReX13. I still like you. It's impossible not to.

Bye bye, Frank. I miss you for reals.

Anywho, back into the ether. When I get into that wicked shit I can't even type.

What? No horse meat in Cali? Last I checked there was about 125 lbs of it at Matthew Broderick's house in LA. Zing!

I'm both amazed and impressed by the fact that you guys were able to write an article today that wasn't about Arianny being naked.
