Chad Robichaux has opened an MMA gym for military veterans, and it's rawesome

Brian Stann is probably America’s most well known mixed martial artist who’s past involves multiple deployments in Iraq under the United States Marine Corps oversight. He was awarded a Silver Star in recognition of his valor in combat. Upon his arrival to the WEC, Stann instantly became a fan favorite, as do many former Marines. Unfortunately, many former members of our military return from combat with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Chad Robichaux is another Marine turned MMA fighter who recognizes that his brothers in arms sometimes need a hand when returning from the battlefield, as he did when he returned from over a decade of service in the Middle East. Ten of Chad’s eleven MMA wins have come by submission, and now he is using his experience in the cage to help Marines overcome PTSD at his new gym in Westcliffe, Colorado. We're fans of fighters who do things that make us laugh on a semi-frequent basis, but we're even bigger fans of fighters who do stuff like this. Props to Ron Kruck at Inside MMA for this awesome video and be sure to follow him on Twitter.
