Fight Business: UFC featherweight Ricardo Lamas opens UFC GYM Naperville
UFC featherweight Ricardo Lamas opened his signature UFC Gym earlier this summer in Naperville, a suburb outside of Chicago. In this episode of Chicago Fighter, Lamas talks about why he’s always wanted to open his own gym.
Lamas joins BJ Penn, Frankie Edgar and Michael Bisping as UFC fighters who have partnered with the UFC’s franchise gyms.
Lamas has been fighting for the UFC/WEC since 2009, compiling a record 13-7. In 2014, he challenged Jose Aldo for the UFC featherweight title.
