Hudson Valley residents now have dedicated Poughkeepsie Boxing training center at Precision MMA

Poughkeepsie Boxing

Poughkeepsie Boxing

Precision’s Poughkeepsie Boxing program is open to people of all ages and experience levels, from first day beginners to elite professional boxers and mixed martial artists.  For years, Hudson Valley residents had to choose from two extremes in the Poughkeepsie Boxing world.  The first were ‘boxercising gyms’.  These were health clubs that had nice facilities and amenities, but minimally trained instructors with very unrealistic training.  If you were serious about learning the sweet science and taking your training into the ring, you were out of luck.  The second option for those seeking Poughkeepsie Boxing were the hardcore ‘dungeon gyms”.  Although these gyms often had legitimate fighters on staff, the facilities were often in ruins and the gyms were located in dangerous neighborhoods.  Often times new boxers would be ignored or used as punching bags for the more seasoned boxers.

Precision’s Poughkeepsie Boxing program is different.  Our staff is made up of real boxers including 3 time NY state Golden Gloves Champion Derek Ohlhoff and AKBF Boxing Champion John Joy.  Our training program is reaslistic and battle tested.  However, we also have a specially crafted fundamentals program specifically designed for the brand new Poughkeepsie Boxing student.  You won’t get beat up and no one is ever forced to spar.

So whether you’re looking to get in great shape and experience the thrill of learning boxing or if you’d like to have your name up in lights and step into the ring Precision MMA’s Poughkeepsie Boxing program can get you to your goals.  Give us a call at 845-392-8495 or visit and get started on your FREE 30 Day trial.

Precision MMA Coach Helps the UFC’s Dan Miller win Submission of the Night

Every fighter dreams of stepping into the UFC octagon and every UFC fighter hopes to take home a big time bonus for a spectacular finish.  Precision MMA coach Brian McLaughlin got to be part of just such an occurrence when he journeyed from Poughkeepsie, NY to Atlantic City to corner Dan Miller at the UFC on FX. Miller enlisted the help of the Hudson Valley coach as he prepared to face BJJ black Belt Ricardo Funch.  For previous fights Brian had helped Dan’s younger brother Jim Miller prepare for battle inside the octagon, but this would be his first time in Dan’s corner.

From day 1 the focus of the training camp was getting the submission.  After reviewing tape on Funch, Brian saw a few weaknesses Dan could exploit.  The biggest being an opening for a guillotine choke.  For weeks Dan drilled the entries knowing that it would be his key to victory.

After 2 hard fought rounds the opportunity presented itself and Dan latched onto the choke at 3:12 of the final round and forced the submission.  In his post fight speech he said, “My coach Brian said the guillotine was there and I took it”.

The incredible submission did not go unnoticed by the UFC brass.  Dan was awarded $50,000 for Submission of the Night, making the victory all the more sweet.

These same moves Brian is teaching to elite UFC fighters can be learned in the Hudson Valley at Precision MMA. No other MMA Gym in Poughkeepsie has produced UFC results like Precision MMA.  To start training with Brian McLaughlin and the other great coaches at Precision MMA call 845-392-8495 or visit and get started on your 30 FREE days of training.

Poughkeepsie Grapplers Take Home Victories at NAGA
Precision MMA Grapplers made the trip from their hometown of LaGrange, NY up to Albany for the North American Grappling Associations (NAGA) tournament.
The big star of the day was little Mikey Rooney. With only 18 months experience, Mikey was able to win both his intermediate divisions. Since he put on such a strong performance, the decision was made to bump his up to the Expert level – despite going up against grapplers with more than twice his experience, Mikey took home second place, even scoring a few crowd pleasing submissions along the way!

In a razor close match the judges awarded his opponent the victory, but “Fitz” had a strong performance looking for the submission from every angle in the toughest division of the day.
