People are asking about pro fights when and where. I'll be taking my time and expanding to new locations. Over the next few weeks I'll be locking in a few dates and locations on the next few events. Expect a pro show in early 2017 maybe a little sooner depending on what happens in these next few weeks. Full submission only grappling events to come as well. Exciting things to come out of New York MMA and exciting news to come from Art of Combat! Thanks to everyone that has supported this very hard road in New York so far!!!!!!!!
