May 2015 - Get Down Fights 17 (Jiu Jitsu)
by Maxamilian Demian on May 3, 2015
Back from tonight’s Get Down Fights 17 at the Yost Theater in Santa Ana, CA. There was an 8-man, 180lbs, purple belt+ submission grappling tournament. The matches were in the cage, two 5-minute rounds and sub-only/judges decision. I went to coach Mario Delgado (who is actually still a white belt, but is a very solid wrestler and MMA fighter that is due for his blue belt). He won his first match against a brown belt in a fairly dominant match that surprised even me, then he lost his semi-final match.
