On Friday November 5 Travis Moors represented GroundControl in our first international MMA match. The fixture was the Fury event run by Advance Martial arts in Queensland. Billed as an Australia vs. New Zealand event several NZ fighters made the trip across the Tasman – many of them like Travis with relatively few fights under their belts. Travis was always going to be in a tough match, up against a much more experienced grappler. He fought a great fight – his heavy hands forcing his opponent to go for the takedown time and again. Travis did a fantastic job of regaining his feet and defending a couple of very dangerous guillotine attempts with some sick guard passing. The third round saw Travis land some nice combos and damaging looking knees. At the end of three rounds the judges could not separate the two fighters and announced the match a draw.
This fight was a big step up for Travis against quality opposition and we’re stoked with the result. He showed the heart and composure we all knew he would and the GroundControl team are very proud of him. Travis’ draw continues GC’s unbeaten run.
Lets make sure we get a good contingent to cheer on Richie Cooper at King of the Door on November 13!
