As he begins his pursuit of another $1 million grand prize in Professional Fighters League, Lance Palmer has been reinvigorated after his move to a new training camp.
The former Ohio State All-American wrestler has long wanted to work with head coach Mark Henry, who came to prominence after working with fighters such as Frankie Edgar, Eddie Alvarez and Zabit Magomedsharipov.
Unfortunately a season ago Palmer was in the same featherweight tournament as another fighter working with Henry and the camp based in New Jersey so he stayed away to avoid any potential conflict.
Now that has passed and Palmer has spent the last few months working under Henry as well as coaches Ricardo Almeida, Nick Catone and several others as he prepares for PFL season 2, which starts for him this Thursday night.
“It’s been awesome,” Palmer said about his new team. “It’s closer to home. I can drive home on the weekends, see my wife, it’s been really good. These guys are really good and they took me in like family. So it’s been an easy transition.”
