    His name is Ben Lagman. He's fought Amateur for King of the Cage a few times and won them all, so he got a contract with Elite (who owns KotC). I am pretty sure it will be his first pro fight, coming up in New Mexico.

    I found out a few weeks ago that a friend of mine has plans to try and go pro once he's finished with college. Congratulations to your friend/gym mate for making it!

    He trains at like 3 gyms now, so he works pretty hard. Our gym is his "home gym", he spars alot at another "fight team" and helps teach at a third gym. He needs to work on his cardio imo, but his only loss was in a tourney to someone they found out later was a 10-fight pro (so it was changed to a no contest). He dominated the guy and loss late in the 3rd because of conditioning.

    That's cool Brad.. 85' in Elite is pretty strong - he'll fight some good competition in there. Awesome for him!

    Two of my teammates fight there too.
