Oftentimes, MMA gyms love to call each other out.
That isn’t the case between Daniel Cormier and John Kavanagh.
Cormier, the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion, is a proud member of American Kickboxing Academy based out of San Jose. The gym is home to UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold, heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez and others.
On social media recently, Kavanagh offered up his respect for AKA. He is the head coach of SBG out of Ireland, where UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor trains.
