Jacob Ashley wins MMA fight with Jiu-Jitsu

We had a great weekend down in Norfolk with one of our MMA fighters, Jacob Ashley, competing in the Spartyka Fight League event on June 4th.

A bunch of the CVL BJJ crew came down Friday for the weigh-ins and stayed for the whole weekend. Even more drove down for just the event on Saturday.

Jacob looked great in his training camp leading up to this fight. We worked a few new techniques that he picked up well and took them into the fight with success. His opponent was game and put up a tough fight but Jacob put his jiu-jitsu to work and nullified his aggressiveness with slick transitions and locks and finished the fight in the mount position for the decision win!

After the victory we finished up the night by watching the remainder of the card then raced to Buffalo Wild Wings to catch the last few fights of the UFC 199.

Good times had by all, except his opponent. Great job Jacob!
