BJ is an incredible athlete who hasn't been able to replicate his success to others.  For that reason, I'd want to train with Couture.  He seems to be able to elevate people's games.

Yeah but from what I have read and heard BJ is a great guy. I would love to just get the knowledge he has.. Plus I think his ring experiance would be great to hear about. He came up and was huge then lost it a little. I just think he would be awesome to learn from. I would for sure love to live in HI and train with him full time...

as much as i love training with lutter. i went to randys new gym in vegas about a month ago (no he wasnt there) but i love the place. my girl is tryin to talk me into moving to vegas and goin to train there.

only thing stopping me is vegas is hell to live in. theres no control over rent or cost of living prices..... i can easily get a job there as en electrician, they are currently building 4 new casinos and 5 high rise condos on the strip. But even gettin paid 50 dollars an hour for me in vegas is like making 10 bucks an hour with cost of living.....

Vegas has a high cost of living?  Man you should see Hawaii.  Climate in Vegas is tortuous.  My wife and I had two condo's there two years ago.  Torture was carrying a refrigerator up a flight of steps to put into the unit in August.  (Next purchase I payed for the shipping)  I love Master Toddy's in Vegas, LV Combat club and J-Sect.

Would love to train with Bas Rutten, I love the guy..great personality plus very round fighter.

In regards to Vegas, I was there on vacation in the beginning of Sept. I couldn't believe the real estate prices either!  it was ridiculous, even out in the desert, a small piece of land big enough for a decent size house was something like $330,000 and this is 20 minutes out of central Vegas I'm talking about... crazy.

I would like to train at Vos gym in Holland, refine my striking.   If I were to pick an individual fighter to train with for a month I would say Randy, he's a master at game plans and a bad ass teacher.

yea even my cab driver said he was goin to move. and alot of the people in vegas are moving out b/c for some reason mortgage prices and intrest can skyrocket on you out of nowhere and you cant do anything about it. so most people cant make house payments anymore and are having to sell and move

I actually have trained with him a few times, but, it would be cool to spend an entire month doing so.

Real estate in LV is in a tailspin (boy I am glad I sold when I did).  Prices should continue to decline.  The great thing about LV (economy wise) is there is the gaming industry and all the spinoff corollary businesses it generates.  I wouldn't like the extremeties of weather, and don't like the fact it is in a desert.  But man is that place the MMA mecca.  Lots of great places to train, lots of experts at particular ranges.  (stand up, clinch, ground)

That means they were in an adjustable rate mortgage and now that it is adjusting, they owe more on their homes than what they are worth, meaning they can't re-finance them. It is happening many places across the country, especially where I live(MI), and yeah theres not much you can do about it. Your payment can go from 1600$ to 3000$(just an example) in one months time. At any rate, make sure you get a 30 year mortgage, don't ever get an ARM.

Well hence the name I just moved from Vegas a year ago.. We rented (key word rented) a 4 bedroom and 2 bath, 2 car garage on the west side. Just a little south of Summerlin for $1000 a month. That's what our house payment is up here in Idaho. As an electrician you could make good money and live a normal life for sure.. I would suggest looking into the union down there. They take good care of their people. I have a buddy who owns his own business down there doing electrical and he clears over 300K a year..

If I could train with anyone for a month it would be the underground Black list fighter Anawatazi. I have never really been overly impressed with any one fighter but after watching him fight in Brazil back in 1998 I was in absolute awe. I was standing next to Rickson Gracie talking to him about technique at the time and Anawatazi had his first match. Needless to say we both stopped talking. No one fighter has ever made an impression on me than him. He is the most brutal, cold and skillful fighter I have ever seen.

If I could train with a second person I would have to say Sakuraba. He is one of my favorite fighter's of all time. Watch Pride 1-10 and you will know why. Very technical and he seems to study the fighter's he faces and gets better as the match progresses. Not to mention he likes to have fun and is a practical joker. I bet the Takada dojo was a cool place to train in the late 90's.

I think training with Fedor would be awesome as well.

Just my .02.........

I don't think it's that bad.. I kind of miss it.. Hardly went to the strip. Unless out of town friends were visiting.. The heat you get used to.. The only complaint the price of land and housing.. But the amount of money to be made is far more then most places. IMO
