Celebrities who train MMA: Chris Pratt
Chris Pratt has graced the big screen in some of the biggest movies of the past five years. From his acting role on Parks and Recreation to his recent role as Star-Lord on Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt’s physical appearance changed quite a bit. Pratt has been open about his training and diet leading up to big roles. One form of training that he has been publically passionate about is MMA.
Pratt can often be seen cage side at big UFC fights, but he can also be seen cornering training partners at Bellator events. At Bellator 214 Pratt stepped up his MMA passion as a cornerman for his training partner Adel Altamimi. Altamimi and Pratt trained together at Unbreakable in Hollywood, CA.
Altamimi claims that Pratt is one of his main wrestling partners and the Jurassic Park star has some serious skills. Pratt grew up wrestling and now gets to share his skills with fighters and other celebrities in the gym.
Being such a fan of the sport and an athlete himself could open the door for a cross over. Although there is no real talk of Pratt jumping into to cage anytime soon, his teammates feel he could if he wanted to.
“He looks good, training and sparring, we wrestling. He’s really good but we don’t know what the future has for him,” Altamimi said.
Whether or not Pratt ever fights in the cage, he can always be seen rubbing elbows with the stars at events and in the gym.
