The Head Instructor [at Absolute MMA] Rob Handley is by far the most dedicated Instructor I've seen. Not only is he always on top of his game he's always putting himself out there to learn more so he can give it to his students. I've never heard him say one negitive thing about anyone. Rob and the rest of his training staff are very professional on and of the mat and lead by example in their personal lives. I'm very greatful to have met and worked with them.

Absolute MMA head coach and owner Rob Handley appears in Fuel TV’s UFC Ultimate Insider. Absolute MMA is a gym in Salt Lake City, Utah. Rob and his team have been involved with the local Utah MMA scene for quite a while. Rob booked an out of state fight for one of his up and coming fighters, Braeden Kilpack, to improve his experience. Rob Braeden and a training partner, Cody Bunderson, were in California a few weeks ago at the Oakdale MMA facility. At the same time, Michael McDonald was preparing for his match against Renan Barao. Braden Kilpack and Cody Bunderson, both students of Rob and fighters out of Absolute MMA, were on hand as Fuel TV captured footage for their spotlight of Michael. Rob, a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, was teaching class when the producer asked if he would be willing to give an interview. Rob agreed and some of the interview can be seen in the trailer. Cameo appearances by Braeden and Cody.
Good luck to Michael McDonald in his upcoming bout with Renan Barao for the UFC bantamweight title.
