It was history in the making as Victory Combat Sports hosted the first legally sanctioned MMA event in New York last May and they did not disappoint. With many of the fights ending in the first round via knockout or submission, VCS certainly set the stage for putting on great shows in NYC and we should expect nothing less with upcoming events this April, as well as Boston in June.
The 2014 fight schedule is already set with the first two events of the year so that can only mean one thing; fighters are getting ready for war. That is certainly the case at C3 Athletics as the guys take it to the mats and the ring to continue their success in the cage. Marcus Surin, Pan Am Gold Medalist and BJJ phenom, had an impressive win at the first Victory event a year ago via first round submission and looks to continue his dominance in the octagon this April. With a superior ground game that makes him a formidable opponent both in MMA matches and in BJJ tournaments, he has also spent countless hours working on his stand up game. With boxing coach, Joey Valle, and Muay Thai instructors Sean Hinds, Omar Estevez and myself, and MMA coach Roger Denton, Surin shows great promise as a rising star in this game.
Another notable mention on the “rising stars” list is professional MMA fighter Brendan “The Honey Badger” Rooney who is riding a 4 fight win streak with his only loss coming in 2011. Make no mistake about his fight name there isn’t anything sweet about this Badger and much like an actual Honey Badger, Rooney is one fearless fighter. I consider him one of the toughest guys in the gym and in the game who has no quit in him and may even be at his best when things aren’t going picture perfect. “A honey badger that is bit by one of the most venomous snakes in the world – a puff adder – will pass out for a few minutes, wake up all pissed, and proceed to eat the said snake.” Sound like anyone you know?
I also look forward to seeing Nick Lavin finally make his way into the cage as he prepares for the upcoming Victory show as well. Facing opponents both in boxing and Muay Thai matches; Lavin is a very tough, hard-nosed fighter who doesn’t mind getting punched in the face. He may even like it if you’ve ever seen him spar. That’s a dangerous fighter if you ask me, but others may refute that theory. Either way, he’s always ready for war and his next fight will be no different. They’ve got a great supporting cast with fighters Eric Summers, Dimitar Sadiev, Adam Pakiela, Cesar Texiera, along with many of the Muay Thai fighters and BJJ practitioners so you can be sure these guys will be ready for a battle when that cage door shuts.
The MMA program is stronger everyday at C3 Athletics. 3rd degree black belt, Cesar Pereira, continues to grow a strong BJJ program that is excelling in every facet of the game, the combination of Joey, Sean, Omar and myself round out the stand up game and the 25 plus years experience that Roger Denton brings to the table is unprecedented, as he’s worked with high-level fighters throughout his martial arts career. Roger’s knowledge, both in standup and on the ground, helps the fighters meld their fight styles together making them well-rounded, smart, and winning fighters and making C3 one of the most elite Mixed Martial Arts gyms in the region.
