“Canadian UFC veteran and trainer, Lance Gibson, known for training many West Coast MMA stars and most recently known as Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s Head Coach, has made a personal decision not to be a part of this particular camp.

Under Mr. Gibson’s tutelage, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson defeated top fighters, Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill. Lance wishes Rampage Jackson the best in his upcoming world championship fight at UFC 135 against Jon “Bones” Jones in Denver, Colorado.

While training Rampage Jackson, Lance was approached by many other top MMA fighter to utilize his expertise, however, he had to turn them down at the time. Lance just recently was involved with training Devin Cole for his recent win in Strikeforce Challengers and Julia Budd with her recent Strikeforce Challengers win over Germaine De Randamie.
