ZU ANYANWU MAKES UFC DEBUT

ZU ANYANWU MAKES UFC DEBUT

Getting the call on one weeks notice Bensalem’s Zu Anyanwu arrived with his camp in Pittsburgh for the UFC Fight Night.  Zu stepped up on short notice against the undefeated Justin Ledit. At the end of the third round the judges rendered their decision which had Zu losing via split decision. The crowd booed the decision in favor of Zu. With more time to prepare for his next opponent Zu vowed to come back stronger, leaner and in better shape.

Overall it was a great experience for the former CFFC Heavyweight Champ who can’t wait to step back into the cage.

MPR AT CFFC 67

What an amazing weekend for our MPR Fight Team! Not only did we have an amazing short notice UFC debut by our own Zu Anyanwu, also all of our fighters came home victorious at CFFC 67. Billy Conway made his ammy debut against a very tough opponent which he was able to put away on his feet. Zach Haynes brought his ammy record to 3-1 picking up a unanimous decision over a game opponent on just 3 days notice.

Highly touted Professional Pat Sabatini stole the show as the main event with a 50 second submission victory to become the newest CFFC Champion. Sabatini was able to make short work over his opponent while taking no damage. The future is bright for this young star who has his sights set on the UFC next.

ZU KNOCKS OUT UFC CONTENDER SHOW

ZU KNOCKS OUT UFC CONTENDER SHOW
On the first ever UFC Dana White Contender Series at the UFC TUFF warehouse in Las Vegas Zu Anyanwu knocked out the highly touted Greg Rebello midway through the second round. Zu’s knockout was the first knockout on Dana White’s new series. This finish solidified Zu as the top heavyweight MMA prospect in the US.

A stunned and Snoop Dog and Uriah Faber called the fight and added some funny commentary to Zu’s knockout. The replay can be seen on the UFC Fight Pass online along with the Snoop Dog commentary. Not sure what the next move will be for Zu, but we’re all sure it will be a big one.

MPR Athletes Go Big In Moscow World Cup Sambo

MPR AT THE WORLD CUP MOSCOW

Team USA’s first day of competition at the Kharlampiev Cup (World Cup). Our sole competitor today was Patrick Sabatini. He fought 68kg combat Sambo. He fought his way to the gold medal match versus Russia. Pat is a beast and battled with one of the world’s best, coming up short (not due to lack of effort, for sure). He also got a wee taste of some headbutts ( yes, they’re legal in combat sambo). Pat’s silver medal is the highest medal of a male USA athlete at this event.

Saturday March 25th, Johnson Jajoute competed in Combat Sambo, Jamie Driver and Catherine Marino competed in sport Sambo, at the Kharlampiev Cup (World Cup). This is Jamie and Catherine’s 1st ever Sambo competition. Talk about jumping into the fire. Jamie’s 1st match was against the reigning world champion, from Georgia. Catherine started with a very tough competitor, from Moldova. Both battled valiantly. At the end of the day, Jamie walked away with a bronze after defeating a tough competitor out of Turkmenistan, in the bronze medal match. Catherine battled hard and came out with great experience.

Johnson battled very hard losing to the eventual gold medalist from Belarus, in his opening match. He ended up fighting for bronze and came up just short. On the ground, it almost appeared like he may have choked his opponent out, but ref stood them up. He ended up 5th. He will surely come back stronger. Johnson previously won bronze at this same event, as well as gold at Pan Ams. There are photos here of Jamie being interviewed, signing autographs, and posing for photos with children. All of our were approached by tons of children and adults, for photos and autographs, as well as interviews. The attention our athletes earned was truly earned.

evanchmBUCKS FIGHTERS WIN BIG IN SCOTLAND

Last Saturday on the 24th of September 4 members of the USA Sambo Team stepped on the mats in Edinburgh at Scotland’s prestigious President’s Cup. The President’s Cup is a unique Sambo tournament previously held in the UK which features Sambo athletes representing 22 countries from around the world. One portion of the tournament was a team Sambo sports style grappling event featuring teams of 5 men and 2 women which all competed against each other. In this event the US didn’t have any athletes participate and the Russian team unsurprisingly was victorious earning the President’s Cup.

Bristol’s Patrick Sabatini and Neshaminy’s Evan Chmieleski put on amazing performances finishing the competition undefeated with gold medals while Johnson Jajoute and Langhorne’s Erik Purcell drew 2 top 3 World Championship finishers and ended up with bronze medals in their efforts. Patrick Sabatini was also named most exciting competitor of the event and given a special plaque and gifts from the owner of M1 Global which is one of the largest mixed martial arts promotions in the world. Erik Purcell also did double duty coaching the 3 athletes while competing himself. USA Sambo head coach Mikhail Kozitskiy also made the trip to oversee the athletes preparation and provide valuable coaching to all of the athletes. top left – Evan Chmieleski, bottom left – Patrick Sabatini, top right – Johnson Jajoute, bottom right – Erik Purcell

Her Highness spent a generous amount of the time meeting with the US Team and presenting the medals at the President’s Cup. As you can imagine this was the first time the Americans met royalty. Overall the American athletes fought their hearts out earning the respect of everyone in attendance.
