The Wolfslair MMA Academy was a fight team and training camp for mixed martial artists and kickboxers, headquartered in a former frozen sausage factory in Widnes, England. The school was founded by Liverpool MMA fans Anthony McGann and Lee Gwynn.[2][3][4][5][6] The academy earned publicity from their signing of UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson, UFC heavyweight Cheick Kongo, and future UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping to training and managerial contracts. With these signings, Wolfslair became noted as one of the most prominent training stables in the UK's MMA scene from 2006 to 2012. [3][4][5]
