"aren't many passionate" ? .... Isn't strikeforce from the Bay ? ... WEC, WFA, etc.. We produced tons of camps.. and hundreds of fighters.
Just keep your radar around the fight camps and the pubs, eat spots around the dojos.
Shields may not be there anymore, but the doors are still open on that place in the Shattuck parking lot (in berkeley).
You got multiple places from gracie black belts.. and mutiple gracies nearby. Lots of judo clubs, tons of kickboxing clubs, san shou, sambo, muay thai..
The bay, especially the East Bay is teeming with fans. You just got look into the scene.
ps. While I'm not a drinker, ... KC is just across the water in downtown SF, training, powerlifting, drinking and talkin mma.
