T.J. Dillashaw isn’t the only relative newcomer to Elevation Fight Team.
Leister Bowling, the squad’s head coach, told MMA Fighting that UFC stalwarts Matt Brown and Clay Guida have also recently come on board, joining a roster that already includes Brandon Thatch, Neil Magny, Cat Zingano and others.

“With what they’re willing to do, it allows us to change our schedule a little bit,” Bowling said of MusclePharm. “Our team has always been spread out in Denver.”

“[Brown] has great training and great coaches back home [in Ohio], too,” Bowling said. “But the training partners for him, I think he was just looking for a place where he knew every day he was gonna have somebody to train with.”
