Jackson-Wink MMA Profiled On “60 MINUTES SPORTS”

Holly Holm

The program “60 MINUTES SPORTS,” that airs on Showtime, will profile famed gym Jackson-Wink MMA this Tuesday night.

Noted mixed martial arts journalist and Sports Illustrated executive editor L. Jon Wertheim takes an in-depth and personal look at how Holly Holm, a barely known underdog, was able to knock out women’s MMA queen Ronda Rousey.

In the piece, Wertheim visits Jackson Wink MMA Academy in Albuquerque, N.M., the home of Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn.

Wertheim investigates how the world-renowned trainers helped guide Holm to victory last November and have established their once-unheralded outpost in Albuquerque as a mecca for some of the best MMA fighters in the world.

Wertheim’s report appears on the next edition of 60 MINUTES SPORTS, premiering Tuesday, March 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. Nathalie Sommer is the producer.
