Arnie: "MMA is my favorite sport"

Guess who's a fan of the sport. If you get a chance read his book Total Recall. It's a great read. He's accomplished the American Dream x 10. Anderson now has another 80's action star to add to his list of fans.

April 27th 2013

Bodybuilding icon, former Governor of California and still sometime action movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared MMA to be his favorite sport.

He is in Brazil this weekend and will be present at Jungle Fight 51. He spoke with GLOBOEsporte about the growing popularity of the sport in Brazil and elsewhere. He also emphasized the importance of weightlifting for fighters preparation.

“It is definitely popular. All UFC fighters are very high-profile in the United States, even more than boxers,” he said.


“MMA is more fun, and most important, they train so much for it. Fighters lift a lot of weight. During the fights they need to be carrying those heavy bodies in wrestling and they have to be in great shape to do that.”

Arnold is in Rio de Janeiro to promote the first edition of his ‘Arnold Classic’ event there. The event was carried out today and Schwarznegger also complimented local legends from MMA and expressed his desire to meet them personally.

“Anderson Silva has a reason to get all this success. He is fantastic at what he does. I like [Rodrigo Nogueira] Minotauro, too. I am in Brazil and I would also to like to meet him.”

he's wrong about them lifting a lot of weight. 99% of mma pro's training have them lifting light weights many times, even Brock Lesnar didn't lift that much when I saw him training mma. Powerflifting is counterproductive for mma, makes you stiff and slow, or it could be just a language problem where he meant lots of reps/time

Every athlete lifts weights still just different kinds of exercises. Rich Franklin does circuit training which is INSANE. Basically one hour of lifting (mid weights) with 0 rest in between different stations. It's like military training.

I just read somewhere that humans have the longest endurance out of most animal species. Interesting.

Considering the final fight scene in the Last Stand that doesn't surprise me.

He's said this before, he's a big fan.

Hypothetically I wonder if he could have gone anywhere if the sport were around during his prime.
