NASCAR’s Kobalt 400 race went down on March 12, 2017 within the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. NASCAR rivers Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Ty Dillon decided to take a different approach to their preparations for the big event. Stenhouse Jr. and Dillon met up with some UFC superstars, donned some boxing gloves and started hitting the bags.

Ty Dillon trained with the former UFC heavyweight champion, showing off some power in his striking.

While neither man is quite ready to enter the cage, a little training with some of the world’s finest MMA warriors has certainly added new levels to their fight games.
