Hereford Combat Academy athlete Mitch Young fought on the Pain Pit Contenders mixed martial arts show held at Abertillery Leisure Centre, South Wales.
Fighting level 3 MMA Mitch faced Scott Vincent from the Ground Zero team. Mitch dominated the first round, controlling the fight from the mount position. In the second round Mitch secured a take down and again quickly transitioned to the mount. A cross face to arm-bar attack saw his opponent superbly defend the attack, but Mitch used a rolling arm-bar to maintain his attack on the arm and with one second of the round remaining, Mitch submitted his opponent with a belly down arm-bar.
A huge thank you to Richard Shore and the team at our affiliate club Tillery Combat, and to Ash Amos for all the time and effort they put into the Mitch's fight camp.
