Everyone put in MAJOR work on the mats at the North American Grappling Championships. The camaraderie, dedication, determination and drive I witnessed yesterday was a huge reminder of why I sacrificed everything to open Razors Edge MMA. Big thanks to everyone who came out and supported the team!! Big thanks to everyone that put in the work with their teammates behind the scenes during BJJ and competition team training!! And big thanks to everyone that stepped onto the competition mats and put it all on the line!! I couldn’t begin to count the amount of medals we took home… But more importantly I couldn’t begin to count the amount of new friendships, bonds, compliments, positive lessons, experience, and new found determination we took home. Thank you everyone!
ALSO!! Former Rutgers wrestling standout and BJJ purple belt Jon Forster takes his three fight winning streak into the cage against another decorated wrestler in Ed Shupe. These two grapplers will be contending for the XFE Lightweight Title!
Rounding out the card is the return of Izzy Encarnacion, who since dropping to flyweight has knocked out both of his opponents. Izzy has arguably his toughest test yet in Eddie Alvarez. And right beside Izzy is Lizandro Zhinin, newly promoted to BJJ blue belt and making his MMA debut.
Come support all three fighters at XFE Cage Wars this Saturday at Harrah’s Philadelphia!
Tickets are available from the fighters!
See you on the mats!
