UFC athletes, according to Miesha Tate, are modern-day Vikings because they prepare their bodies for combat. These athletes completed a workout designed to imitate the strength and energy required to row for hundreds of miles at a time during a Vikings’ expedition.

Cory Sandhagen wishes to travel back in time and live as the Vikings did. Even Miesha Tate said, “My take is that UFC fighters are the modern day Vikings, I mean we train our bodies to go into battle”
