Purple Pans


Today was another fun day at Pan Ams.  We had to two purple belts competing from Siege MMA.  After getting lost on the way to the venue we walked in to catch Little Big John McCarthy in his first match.  He picked up an early ankle pick takedown and stayed on top to win 2-0.  He then faced last years purple belt pans bronze medalist, a tough draw and a sneaky triangle ended Johns day.
Next up was Kamuela Gabe Kirk.  Gabe had an exciting first match, after pulling guard he was able to sweep to the back.  From the back he set up a smooth transition to end the match in a triangle.  His second match his opponent grabbed on to Gabe’s already broken ankle like he got a tip before the match.  Gabe tried to tough his way through it but the pain took over.  He will have surgery Wednesday to repair the break, speedy recovery.
Proud of you both for good performances, time to go back to the gym and get back to work.  Tomorrow we have Robert and Anders competing in the teen division.
