About UFC Performance Institute
UFC opened the first UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas in 2017 as the world’s first Mixed Martial Arts multi-disciplinary research, innovation, and training center. In 2019, UFC opened the 93,000 square-foot Shanghai Performance Institute, a facility approximately three times the size of the original Las Vegas location. Both operations are equipped with a full-time staff of experts in the fields of strength and conditioning, nutrition, and physical therapy, with a focus on providing athletes with world-class performance optimization training. Hundreds of UFC athletes have utilized the facilities and their services, as well as dozens of elite athletes from other major sports, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and Olympics, among others.
