They probably arrive a week or two early, that's what I would do.

That's a good point, I work in South Korea and Japan a few times a year (from U.K) and it kills me for 4 days.

Jet legs, I am not too sure but Dominick Cruz seems to have that ability pretty much wrapped up, best ask him.

Some people say you need to workout when you land, apparently it helps. Tim Ferris on JRE said he would lie down in the grass somewhere, a park or something, and it would help. It sounds nuts, but I have heard several people mention it helping since.

thought this thread was gonna be about mR. Thigh-nyamite himself

if you can find a sensory deprivation tank, supposedly gets rid of jet lag.

There is no other way to explain why most Asian and European based fighters struggle in the American UFC events. When the UFC is in Europe Sakara gets headlock ko highlights, in USA sometimes strange things happen to him and he loses to a guy he is better than. The travel must be the variable Phone Post

That's what the smart one's do.

For those not making big paychecks in the fight game, you fly when the promoter agrees to fly you. This is typically a week or less out. Just enough time to tape and edit promo videos, pictures, etc. Ambien is your friend to adjust your clock quickly, then you have to adopt a normal routine and try to adjust.

Oh and jet legs made me think of a bad dance move from the 80s or something. Phone Post

Even that would result in a disadvantage because thats less time in your training camp. I think the only reasonable way to do it would be to do the full camp in the timezone youre fighting in. In my experience and from other people's, I've found that coming from asia is 10 times harder to adjust to than going to asia from california. I can adjust to asia in one or two days but coming back can take 2 to 3 weeks.

I was in the same room with Fedor 2 days out from the arlovski fight in Brooklyn which is 2 time zones away from where the fight was taking place and hours off from Stary Oskal. No wonder he looked like hot garbage until the body shot then the ko. Jet legs Phone Post
