KnuckleUp continues our dominance of the local fight scene with a huge weekend of events.
Tonight at Wild Bill’s in Atlanta two of the gym’s star trainers have the biggest fights of their careers broadcast live on AXSTV. Dave “The Atlanta Ogre” Vitkay, who is known for his crushing ground game, will face Tommy Jones in the Co Main Event of Legacy 40.
Dave, who has gone 3-0 in Bellator (one an 18 second submission), is on a 4 fight win streak. If he does well tonight in front of a nationally televised audience he will boost his career’s already rising momentum. An entertaining win against Jones will springboard one of our gym’s main instructors into more big matches and potentially line him up to fight for a title in the near future. Plus, Dave hopes to ride his huge wave of ring success into a spot on the UFC’s flagship Reality TV show The Ultimate Fighter when he tries out later this year.
Home grown Jiu Jitsu Ace, Gui Curry, will face the always tough Rusty Crowder at featherweight. Gui, who is an accomplished Jiu Jitsu brown belt and was an undefeated amateur mixed martial artist has worked hard on his striking for the last year in order to compliment his already slick ground game. Both Dave and Gui were trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at KnuckleUp’s Sandy Springs School under the great Master Ricardo Murgel.
KnuckleUp Muay Thai “Destroyer” Devorious Tubbs will also make his television debut tonight as well.
Then on Saturday, Quentin Rosenzweig, will face Brandon Mccaghren in a submission only professional grappling match at Kakuto at Kenesaw Mountain High School. Quentin is another of the grappling prodigies Master Murgel has created while head BJJ instructor at KnuckleUp. He is a leg lock specialist and it took him, on average, only thirty seconds to submit his opponents last year.
