They don't really train together but I am certain they are pretty good friends. Garcia gets up here a couple times a year and I am not sure how often Tyler goes to Jacksons if at all. They are for sure from the same camp. Tyler has a bright future in the UFC. He trains hard, teaches classes and is always improving. Garcia is a tough fight for anyone. He has UFC experience and has some big power. These are the thypes of guys that the UFC should be building IMO they can become stars in the UFC.

This might not be a bad idea, i would be interesting to thow a featherweight fight on the card and both fighters should put on a good show. These two wouldn't be my first choices to showcase the lighter weighter divisions, but should be interesting none the less
