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.
Valor Fights is the perennial mixed martial arts and combat sports promotion in the state of Tennessee and Ace was stepping into the promotions cage for the first time as a professional. He had previously fought for Valor Fights as an amateur. Ace last fought in June for Fear No Battle and suffered his first loss as a professional with an early TKO stoppage at the hands of unbeaten Al Martinez. Saturday night at the Chattanooga Sports Complex in Hixson, TN, he was able to rebound from that loss with one of the most impressive knockouts of the year.
All of us at Endo Athletics would like to congratulate Ace, the Samples family, and his Kombat Kingz team on the victory and want to wish him nothing but the best of luck moving forward in 2016!
