Congratulations to John Rallo and his guys over at Ground Control, on having all four of their amateur fighters win this past weekend in Delaware. Here is very nice in depth write up about John’s students and their matches this past weekend.
John will be having his case heard about trying to get mixed martial arts legalized in the state of Maryland in a couple of weeks. I can tell you from personal experience having trained at John’s school; he is all about safety and making sure that the guys teaching are about the same thing to. Hopefully John will help get MMA legalized in Maryland, especially since it is legalized in Virginia, D.C., and Pennsylvania, that way his fighters and others do not have to travel out of state all the time to face competition.
One of John’s other student’s James “Binky” Jones, will be fighting on an upcoming HDNet event on March 7th in Atlantic City. Binky is coming off of a successful appearance on Showtime’s Elite XC card where he submitted his opponent in 1:12 in the 1st round. Big things are on the horizon for Binky and hopefully he can continue to climb his way up the ladder.
