    There are some great gyms in Edmonton but Ford is going to be one of the top guys at any gym in town, It’s hard to compare the gyms in Edmonton with Tristar. GSP, Zahabi, Rory, Marqurdt, Hawn, Makdessi, Ricci, Torres, Kajan and that’s just the guys that are there full time, there’s always world class fighters coming through for training camps too!

    Ford needs to train with guys that are better than him to keep improving, If you’re the best guy in the gym there’s nowhere to go from there except to a world class gym to get you ass kicked. I don’t think it’s a knock on gyms here, just needs to take the training to the next level!

    There’s lots of guys in Edmonton that will give Ford good training. If Ford wants good Muay Thai sparring he can Spar with Jimmo, Shaolin or Maramo. If he wants some good rolls he can roll with Luke Harriss or Paulo Azumbuja (No way hes tooling Azumbuja on the ground, no way). There’s some pretty good studs at the UofA Wrestling club like Yurick thats around 170 that Ford wont throw around. Lots of good Boxers at Beverly Bronx and Cougar gym. Lots of good places to train, but I agree, Tristar is the way to go to push yourself for a world class fight. Good on Ford, he is the straight up man and the best 170 lb fighter in Alberta by far!
