The Factory Tulsa
In early 2012, three heavyweight names in the professional fighting worlds––The Factory, Team Nogueira Tulsa, and Ghost Dog Boxing––merged into a single muscle-building conglomerate, which USCombatSports.com heralded as a "match made in heaven [that] puts the best of three gyms into one." Now operating under The Factory moniker, the supergroup of combat trainers and health gurus staked its claim in an 8,000-square-foot facility, where members receive 24-hour access to weight-lifting equipment, Olympic lift platforms, and locker rooms with shower facilities.
The Factory's absorption of fellow fighting gyms has allowed founder and UFC fighter Josh Bryant to incorporate new techniques to his training programs, blending his MMA background of takedowns and strikes with the jujitsu tactics of Team Nogueira Tulsa and the sparring combinations of Ghost Dog Boxing. Together this triumvirate teaches students the skills needed to build lean muscle mass for battles inside the ring or scuffles inside toy stores during the Christmas season.
