But, Bill stepped it up bigtime this past weekend, entering the cage to compete in pro MMA for only the 2nd time - this time at Strikeforce Challengers. That's basically the "big leagues," especially now that Strikeforce is owned by ZUFFA/UFC.
Not much of a story here. Bill took this fight on very short notice and showed up in a huge way to defeat Maka Watson via RNC sub in Round 2. When I heard about this match up, I expected this result. Maka is a grappler as well, but in no way on the level as Bill.
Here's to Bill Cooper - the kid's got a big future in MMA ahead of him.
