DSTRYR/SG AND UNIVERSITY OF MMA: WE HIT THE CANVAS AGAIN AND WE LIKED IT.

Carlos Tapia-Grullon

In prison, if you get caught slippin on the yard, you could easily find yourself on the receiving end of a shanking frenzy.  Not a pretty image, but such is the way in prison.

But, it's also that way in life.  I'm speaking metaphorically of course, unless you live in South Los Angeles (my condolences if that's the case). 

And, that, my grappling brethren, is what keeps DSTRYR/sg on its toes and forces us to stay ahead of the game.  How do we do that, you ask?  By being the grapplingest, most choketastic, triangle imposing, armbar insisting website on the planet.  I don't know what I mean by that, but, I know we put our logo on the canvas at the University of MMA's inaugural CAMO event and it was both bloody and glorious.

U of MMA is a brand new Los Angeles/Hollywood based amateur promotion headed by my old training partner, Turi Altavilla. Turi's a veteran in the MMA biz with over a decade of experience in big name promotions (first with KOTC, then with Pride USA and later, EliteXC).  We're psyched to be a part of it and to help support grass roots MMA.

Check out a few photos featuring the DSTRYR/SG logo ... and some entertaining amateur MMA:
