On February 27th our student Dean Hancock debuted as Professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter in one of the biggest and most prestigious MMA shows in the world, Bellator MMA. Dean won his first match as professional by submission at 1:33 min of the first round.
Dean who is natural from Danbury, CT, is part of our new generation of fighters now training under head coach Luigi Mondelli and UFC MMA fighter Glover Teixeira at American Top Team Connecticut and Glover Teixeira MMA Training Center.
He is undefeated in his whole career as amateur and professional. With exceptional dedication, working hard every day, Dean is another example of athlete that has started his career training in our facility under the tutelage of great coaches.
Special thanks to our Muay Thai coaches Greg Belardinelli and Timothy Silva as well as trainer Bruno Goes who also have been helping our new talents.
