01:42 PM ET 01.04 | Jon Fitch says camps have to adjust their training to make sure there is less injuries in the future. "Some things we need to change," he said. "We're drilling way more now. You get more out of, you know, you go three five-minute rounds of just hard grappling and wrestling, and you may only take four or five shots and you get two takedowns in that five-minute go. Well, if you're just drilling, you can hit 150 double-legs in that five-minute time. You're going to get way more out of that drilling all the double legs than you will get out of going at each other. And that kind of mindset is a little bit more what we're trying to embrace at AKA."
