MMA coach Trevor Wittman had quite the showing at UFC 268, with each of his three fighters earning main card victories during the event.
UFC champions Rose Namajunas and Kamaru Usman defended their belts in the final two bouts of the night, with both of them going the distance in back-and-forth wars. Wittman also coached lightweight contender Justin Gaethje to a unanimous decision win over Michael Chandler in a Fight of the Year contender to kick off the main card.
Wittman is the coach and owner of ONX Sports in Colorado, which has quickly become one of the best gyms in the world. His approach to striking is regarded as revolutionary by many athletes in the UFC and beyond.

Coach Trevor Wittman Had a Memorable Night at UFC 268
Gaethje could get the next lightweight title shot to face the winner of Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier which will take place at UFC 269 next month. Wittman could quickly get another opportunity to coach one of his fighters in a UFC title bout just months after his wild night at UFC 268.
Wittman has also changed the way that gloves are approached in the UFC. The gloves that he developed were infamously featured on an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience and allegedly help eliminate eye pokes and other hand-related injuries.
Wittman’s gym in Colorado is one of many MMA hotspots in the state, which features other top talents such as TJ Dillashaw and Cory Sandhagen.
Wittman continues to develop some of the most exciting fights in the UFC today, and his cornering and his ability to transition quickly in between bouts at UFC 268 is a testament to his hard work and prestige as a coach.
