Veteran fighter Sean Salmon opening a new MMA facility in Ohio

Originally posted on MMAjunkie.com

Sean Salmon, a veteran of organizations such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Strikeforce, is opening a new MMA training facility in Columbus, Ohio.

As detailed in this week's "MMA Insider" column for the Dayton Daily News, the former Ohio State University wrestler will open the S.S. Combat & Fitness Center on Feb. 1.

"The area produces a lot of fighters, but there's not a whole lot of places to go to get complete, all-around training," said Salmon, a longtime MMAjunkie.com contributor.

The business is a joint venture between Salmon and his father-in-law, Rick Pyles, who is the owner of the Ohio-based Ultimate Victory Challenge promotion.

The facility (located at 171 N. Hamilton Road in Columbus) will include a regulation cage, boxing ring, mat space, heavy bags and other equipment. Boxing, wrestling, kickboxing and jiu-jitsu instructors are being brought in to offer training for complete amateurs to top-level professionals. Additionally, a pro shop will include merchandise from many of MMA's top brands.

Salmon and fellow UFC vet Rex Holman (a former NCAA Division I national wrestling champion at Ohio State) will head the wrestling instruction.
