On Saturday, July 11th, The Historic Palace Theatre of Crossville, TN will host ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO 5 with an event headlined by two of Tennessee's most highly decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belts as Cory Robison of Phoenix MMA and Fitness takes on Steven Haag of Victory Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a Black Belt NoGi Grappling bout in our main event.
'Smooth' Steven Haag will be headlining his second ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO event after main-eventing our inaugural event in January of 2019. That night he picked up a victory over 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu standout Michael Bartlett. He will be looking to make it 2-0 on the ENDO Athletics stage on July 11th.
Haag is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt under Helio Soneca/Phil Hurst and has been active and extremely successful on the Jiu-Jitsu circuit for over a decade.
Cory Robison made his ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO debut in February as part of our 8-Man Combat Jiu-Jitsu Championship bracket. He made it to the finals that night after picking up victories over pro MMA veteran Chris McKinney and Lucas Lepri Knoxville's Cody Jordan. This will be his first time competing in straight grappling at an ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO event.
Robison is a Roberty Drysdale Black Belt and is a long time Jiu-Jitsu competitor who has picked up victories all over the world and is also a former IBJJF World Champion.
Haag and Robison have met competitively a lot over the years, most recently at Valor Fights 48 in Nashville, TN on March 31st, 2018 where Haag picked up a referees decision victory over Robison. Both athletes will come in looking for a different outcome on July 11th and with the different rule set that ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO presents, it will guarantee that we will have a decisive winner in this match-up.
With ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO 5 being headlined by these two highly respected and highly talented Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belts, we couldn't ask for a better main event.
ENDO Athletics Jiu-Jitsu PRO 5 will take place on Saturday, July 11th at the Historic Palace Theatre in Crossville, TN. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at www.endoathletics.com.
