Mitch Clarke is happy to be a part of Jackson-Wink MMA.
After dropping a decision to Michael Chiesa, Clarke made a permanent move to Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While “Danger Zone” lost quickly to Joseph Duffy, he wasn’t training at Jackson-Wink from the start of that camp.
“I have no problems with John Crouch and The MMA Lab; it’s a great team, great training partners, great coaches, great everything. But for me, I needed to change some things up. I bonded with a couple of coaches really well (at Jackson-Wink MMA). It stimulated my passion for the sport again. I needed to move forward in a different sense. I changed, and I like the change. It’s intimidating. It’s a bigger camp, and there’s so many great guys, so many stars. You forget that you’re at the upper echelon of fighting and they’re just people. It’s going to be a disappointment, obviously. Some guys I was really, really tight with, and others not so much. I’m happy I did it. Unfortunately, it’s part of the game.”
