Endo Athletics will finally be making it's long awaited debut in the world of professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotions with the inaugural Endo Athleitcs Jiu-Jitsu PRO event that will be held at the Historic Palace Theater in Crossville, TN on January 12th, 2019.
Endo Athletics has already held several smaller grappling events with the Endo Athletics Invitationals, but they hail in comparison as to what the Endo Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO events will be that will be taking place throughout 2019.
News has broke today that Endo Athletics sponsored athlete Bubba 'The Menace' McDaniel will be stepping in to replace King Mo against Liam McGear at Bellator 185 on October 20th at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
Bubba is coming off of two first round stoppage wins since returning to mma action last year, picking up w's over Andre Kavanaugh (7-11) and Juan Torres (6-9). Both of the fights were first round victories for 'The Menace.' He will be entering the Bellator cage riding a three fight winning streak.
We will proudly be working with "The Cuban Assassin" Luis Zequeira again for his upcoming professional mixed martial arts bout at Real Fighting Championships 40 in Tampa, Florida on Friday, July 21st.
Luis Zequeira (4-3) is coming off of a TKO/KO win over Angel Corchado (4-5) at Battleground MMA, which took place on April, 21st in Tampa, FL. Luis was riding a three fight losing streak before stepping into the Battleground MMA cage and picking up his first round victory over Corchado. He is going to be looking to do much of the same on July 21st at RFC 40.
Luis will be facing Warren Smith (6-7) at RFC 40. Smith has won four out of his last six bouts and has faced some tough competition so the match up between Smith and Zequeira will be a fun one to watch as both fighters are two extremely talented and hungry up and coming national prospects and we couldn't be more stoked to see Luis in Endo Athletics gear again!

Endo Athletics was proudly in the corner of Ace “O' Spades” Samples' this past Saturday as he stepped in the Valor Fights cage for his third professional mixed martial arts bout.
After what would have perhaps changed the mindset for most young fighters with a last second change of opponents from TC Coleman to Brandon Grimmett a little over a week out from the event, the Georgia native stepped into the Valor cage and proved why he is one of the top young prospects in the southeast delivering a very impressive 12 second knock out victory.
Rory Every (3-0) will be stepping into the RFC cage for the forth time on Friday, November 13th and will be sporting Endo Athletics. Every is undefeated in his young career and will be looking to pick up his forth win as a professional at RFC 35 when he steps into the cage with another undefeated pro in Al Martinez (4-0).
Every trains out of The Armory of Daytona Beach under WEC/UFC vet Richard Crunkilton and MMA/Muay Thai coach Mike Vazquez and is considered one of the top ranked professional bantamweights in the state of Florida and the southeast being undefeated at 3-0.
Cooper 'Honeybadger' Wright competed this weekend at NAGA Seattle and had one heck of a day, bringing home hardware in three different divisions.
Coop placed 1st in the Expert NOGI division for 13 years old & Under and then moved up to the 13 years old & Over division at only 11 years old and picked up a bronze medal. The Honeybadger also brought home a Silver medal in his gi division.
Not bad for an eleven year old!
