Gym Spotlight: Syndicate MMA in Las Vegas

Theres a new kid in town and that kid is Syndicate Mixed Martial Arts. Known formerly to some as the Throwdown, Xyience or Warrior Wear Gyms, Syndicate has a new name, totally brand new location, and is a spot where many of the top fighters to come through Las Vegas make an appearance.

I headed down there a couple weeks ago to check out the spot and were blown away by the sheer size of the location; a mere 18,000 square feet. I was quickly informed that the name is now Syndicate, and that the name Throwndown had been retired. A clothing line had also been created bearing the gym’s name which was sold in the store located at the front of the location.

It was a Tuesday morning and I had arrived for Pro Practice at 11:30 am. A bunch of familiar faces I had seen around Vegas for years were there stretching out on the mats and then running laps to warm up. Ray Sefo was there watching as a number of guys he works with were there to train that day.

After warming up, each of the fighters grabbed a partner and directed by gym owner, John Wood and coach John Gunderson proceeded to work on various drills as instructed. I ducked into the cage where I caught Jay Hieron training for his upcoming fight against Tyron Woodley on UFC 156.

I continued to move and shoot about the gym that was filled with both UFC fighters and local up and coming fighters as well until the end of training where I got everyone together for a group photo.
