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 CLEANS UP AT CFFC 67

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.

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.

BDOT WINS HIS MMA DEBUT


Congrats to MPR Fight Team member Brian BDot Jones on his flawless first round TKO at Xtreme Caged Combat Friday night. It was an explosive fight which all favored Jones and a relentless attack. UFC ref and fan favorite Big Dan Miragliotta stopped the action 1 min 20 seconds into the fight. After a very intense and successful training camp Jones’s performance wasn’t surprising. The areas top fighters came out to lend their support as Jones cruised through his debut. The sky is the limit for this octagon newcomer.
