Coach Mark Greubel is set to coach kickboxing phenom, Reshat Mati, in the world kickboxing championships in Dublin, Ireland.
Reshat is one of the most highly decorated junior fighters in the country and will be representing WAKO Team USA in late August in Ireland.
Head coach Mark Greubel spent the weekend training with a handful of exceptional athletes.
GMMA's own ABA Heavyweight Champion, Brandon "Big Bear" Spencer, was joined by current UFC and former Olympic silver-medalist Sara McMann and Professional MMA fighter, Jared Scoggins. Both athletes are training out of Revolution Mixed Martial Arts in Inman, SC; the group spent the weekend working technique and preparing for upcoming fights.
Adam Poore, a decorated fighter out of Greubel's MMA and a member of Team USA and WAKO kickboxing, will not be participating in the upcoming World Games due to a torn meniscus.
However, immediately following surgery and recovery, he plans on pursuing a professional fighting career.
Greubel's MMA would like to congratulate Adam Poore, Nathan Key, Edgar Nickson, Drew Pye, Lakesha Springle, and Chris Richardson with great kickboxing performances at the 2015 WAKO North American K-1/Kickboxing tournament, in Las Vegas on July 10-11! Greubel's MMA kickboxers have consistently produced CHAMPION after CHAMPION since opening in it's doors in Dec of 2005. When all was said and done on July 11th, 4 of the 6 fighters emerged gold medal winners, and 2 of the fighters had great performances in the finals winning silver medals respectively. Adam Poore, who usually fights in the 147 lb division had to move up in weight unexpectedly and fought a brilliant fight against the TBA 156 lb U.S. champion winning the 156 lb K-1 division. Chris Richardson won an easy unanimous decision in the 165 lb low-kick division. Chris fought a tough fighter from Chicago , but was able to knock him down in the 2nd round with a well placed liver kick. Lakesha Springle looked spectacular against the Mexican National team member in the ladies 132 lb K-1 division. Her movement and speed made it impossible for the Mexican competitor to ever do any substantial damage. This left Lakesha with the decisive win from all 3 judges. Nathan Key looked unstoppable. In his first fight against the Pan-American champion from Mexico, Nathan dropped his opponent with a beautifully timed head kick. Nathan would go on to knock his opponent down 2 more times to force a referee stoppage because of the 3 knockdown rule. He then advanced to the finals to meet a strong competitor from California. This fight also ended in a knockout, but this time it was a precisely placed left hand that would do the trick. Not a bad weekend for Greubel's MMA and Augusta, GA!
