Latest News


Brad Murphy's wrecking crew fight team continues to dominate. Travis Thomas, a rising star with "The Crew" dominated in his pro debut, winning with a first round submission win. Travis controlled the fight from beginning to end displaying his standup skills, takedowns, and ground skills showing why he has been aptly nicknamed "The Total Package."

The first round opened up with Travis setting up his opponent with good boxing skills and a strong front kick to his opponent's chest which sent his opponent back and into the cage. At this point his opponent rushed in for the clinch and attempted a throw but Travis controlled his base and took his opponent down and gained cross-body position and immediately got some good shots in to his opponent's head and face.

As his opponent worked an escape and got to his knees, Travis picked him up from this position and slammed him again. Once again his opponent worked an escape but as he managed to get to his feet travis forces him against the cage. This time Travis executed a perfect (kesi) throw, taking his opponent into a kesa-gatame position. Travis again worked strikes to his opponents head and set up a beautiful leg V arm lock submission, winning the fight at 2:01 of the first round.
