    Say you have a fight in another state coming up. Would you pay for your trainer and a friend to fly with you to the fight? Or go there alone and hopefully find someone willing to corner you?

    i suck to bad to fly somewhere for a fight. if it's not in driving distance it's too high class 4 me.

    i guess if i viewed mma as a career i'd probably fly out my corner team, since i would starve to death if i had to rely on fighting for a living i wouldn't do so

    When I cornered a friend fighting in Sport Fight(we're from KC)They paid for him and I to fly out their and the hotel for the both of us as well as transportation while we were that. IMO that would be pretty standard.

    i've never had to fly, but that was the case for other guys at my gym too. either that or the owner/trainer took care of it.

    $514 for tickets. Looks like it'll be much cheaper to drive :eek4:

    I drove a friend to Strikeforce in SJ...they gave us gas money and rooms. My understanding is that the fighters that were flown out got an extra ticket or two for their corners:dunno:
