A True Mixed Martial Artist

A True Mixed Martial Artist

February is heart month Gibson Soldiers!

Embodying the heart of a true mixed martial artisit in every way, Lance "Fearless" Gibson Jr. entered the ring for a title fight on January 22nd, 2016 at the Tulalip Resort & Casino down in Washington. With an unbelievable display of precision, technique, power and speed, Lance defeated Daeshawn Thomas and was crowned the 155 lbs Champion at the Supreme MMA Showdown.

Howie "Super" Tan also fought and represented Gibson MMA in the cage that same night! An MMA killer, Howie defeated Chantol Hang via TKO in the first round!

Both Lance and Howie embody the hearts, spirits and minds of true mixed martial artists. Their dedication to their craft is demonstrated every day in their training, but also in their daily lives. They both remain humble, consistent, and students of life. Always adaptable, flexible and fearless, these Warriors of the Light allow the light within their hearts to shine through. They envision the outcome they want because they trust in their training, in their coaches, and in themselves. As Warriors of the Light they are positive upstanding members of their community and a source of motivation for many of our Gibson Soldiers. We trust in them as they trust in us. We are incredibly proud of them and excited for their futures!

Julia "The Jewel" Budd will also be stepping back in the Bellator MMA ring this Spring! It's almost time for this Warrior of the Light to show the world what she does and let her light shine through!
