In MMA, we hear about managers and trainers, but outside the more outspoken ones that stand out, how many of us truly understand what the day to day life of one is like?

On this edition of Josh Nason's Punch Out, learn about that and more as I talk with TopGame Management'sTyson Chartier, manager and trainer for UFC fighters like Rob Font, Calvin Kattar, Kyle Bochniak, and more fighters trying to get into the UFC.

Among the topics Tyson and I talked about:

  • How he has built up TopGame Management without doing much outward recruiting
  • What advice he gives to fighters about promoting themselves
  • What he's learned from Joe Lauzon
  • Inspirations for how he's built his business
  • His team's successful night at January's UFC 220 when Font, Kattar, and Bochniak all won within 90 minutes of each other
  • How he has dealt with aging fighters looking for one more fight when they are well past their prime...and more.
