This weekend in Northern VT there will be a good amount of combat sport action. Saturday morning is the VT Open Grappling Championship, and that evening will be some amateur MMA, submission grappling, and Muay Thai action with Gym Wars VI being put on by UFAI Grappling.
Here's the card for Gym Wars VI:
145 Tourney: Kosta Jones (Combat Fitness) vs Bruce Richards
145 MT: Michael Edwards vs George Elliot (UFAI)
155 MMA: Zach Labbay vs Wayne Dion
165 MMA: Brian Roderick vs Dan Carpenter (Dynamic Defensive Dojo)
175 Sub Grap: Jake Huckins (Contenders Gym) vs Eric Donnelly (Catamount BJJ)
170 MMA: Rob Besaw vs Brett Trahan
170 MMA: Jason LaPage (Duquettes Sub Fighting) vs Brandon Millard (UFAI)
205 MMA: Sevren Francis vs Andrew Davis (Warrior Hill)
155 MT: Jesse Mabe (Contenders Gym) vs Matt Rehm (Tai Kai)
170 MMA: Duncan Russell (PCS) vs Larry LaBreque Jr.
Brian Roderick will be making his second entry into MMA competition and is looking to put a W on his record as he currently stands at 0-0-1 due to an accidental groin shot resulting in a NC in his debut. He is rematching his first opponent so they'll both get closure.
I'll also be cornering Brett Trahan as he looks to improve his record to 4-1. His only loss came in his debut, and he's won all three since with two coming by way of submission.
If there are any of you Maniacs in attendance, feel free to come say hello!
