Southwest Classic

This past Saturday and Sunday was a good weekend for Lotus Club/Siege MMA Jiu Jitsu.  We did not send huge numbers to compete but did well on the ones we did send.  Some highlights of the weekend were Joe Gomez winning the Gold, Sam Murphy Gold, Robert Mahoney Gold, Phil Hinkel Gold, and Logan Jewell Gold.  Logan won his division with three matches that totalled 70-4 in points and he was able to submit two out of three.  By far one of the most dominating performances in a tournament in my knowledge.  Lotus Club Brown Belt Instructor Jesus Artesi earned silver in his weight and bronze in the open.  William Walsh also got a silver medal to hang on his fridge.

I ended the tournament with a gold medal for my division and silver in the open.  I dropped  the open final by Leg Lock to current UFC Lightweight contender Ben Henderson.  I was able to secure a choke on 18 year old phenom brown belt Andre Vaughn.  This might be a large victory for me considering his skill level at such a young age, expect big things from this kid in the future.

I would like to thank a couple sponsors from this weekends tournament.  Many Weapons stepped up and sponsored me with some sweet gear to rock at the tournament and training.  Also while preparing for the tournament Advocare rep Darren Hood hooked me up with some supplements to help with weight gain and everyday grind of the training camp.  Also my friend/student Jonnie Moses supplied me with my protein to make my shakes before and after training.  Go check out these websites.


Videos from the matches will be up soon.  Congrats to all my Lotus Club teammates who competed, competition is going to improve your game.
