The growth of the UFC has earned the sport many fans in dressing rooms around the league. It’s also earned MMA fighters a lot of respect from NHLers.
“Even the worst UFC fighter that there is would beat me because of their training,” said Pittsburgh Penguins enforcer Georges Laraque. “It’s so much harder than anything I’ve ever seen.
“I’m a fighter, so I know how hard they work and I know how hard it is to go against someone.”
