In a ranking of the "Top 10 MMA Gyms in the World," Kill Cliff® FC comes in third. Kill Cliff FC is in some pretty good company at the top of the list, trailing only American Kickboxing Academy at No. 2 and American Top Team (ATT) at No. 1.
Here's what they had to say:
Previously known as Combat Club and later Hard Knocks 365 and Sanford MMA, the gym currently branded as Kill Cliff FC is helmed by Henri Hooft and legendary collegiate wrestler Greg Jones. A fairly new gym, Kill Cliff FC was founded only in 2017 but quickly marked its stamp on the MMA landscape.
Reigning UFC welterweight champion and the pound-for-pound No. 1 fighter in the world, Kamaru Usman is the gym's most well-known fighter. While Usman made a brief departure from Kill Cliff FC due to his previous matchup with teammate Gilbert Burns, he has since returned to prepare for his upcoming bout with Leon Edwards at UFC 278.
Besides Usman, the gym plays host to the aforementioned Gilbert Burns, who sits as the No. 4-ranked welterweight in the UFC. Both men are joined by top-ranked fighters in Derek Brunson and Michael Chandler, as well as former ONE double champion Aung La Nsang.
