Getting to know Gunnar Nelson
We spent some time in Reykjavik, Iceland with Gunnar Nelson, checking out his Mjolnir MMA gym as well as the sights and sounds of such a wonderful city. UFC welterweight Nelson is renowned for his laid-back persona, constantly unfaltering no matter what the situation, even when he's facing off against another world class fighter in the Octagon. We got to see another side of the Tenacity Clothing sponsored athlete as we posed him some very different questions, helping us to get to know the man outside of the cage and the gym. There's certain things you'd never expect to hear coming from the mouth of the enigmatic SBG product, including what music he likes to train to, what he'd take to a desert island, and what first comes into his head when he thinks of England. It might sound like it errs on the side of the trivial but it makes for some entertaining and amusing viewing! We'll be keeping a close eye on what's happening with Gunnar in his upcoming fights and endeavour to keep you informed right here. With a career best performance in his last outing against Brandon Thatch, UFC fans can't wait to see him back in the Octagon. It was also a personal milestone for Nelson, who bounced back instantly from his first defeat to Rick Story. It made him rebound emphatically, so who knows what his next performance will be like now he has some wind back in his sails. You can find the range of equipment Nelson uses in the gym by heading to the Tenacity Clothing page on Fightstore Pro - they're also a part of our SUMMER SALE until the end of August! They have shorts, rashguards, BJJ gis, gym bags and much more, all great quality! If you want to stay up to date with what's going on, find him on Twitter: @GunniNelson.
