YOUR CO-MAIN EVENT- The HANDSOME BELT BATTLE: Handsome Kevin Sherrill, Brown belt, Not Bad Combat Club versus Travis “the Mantis” Thomas, blue belt, 10th Planet Decatur. Thomas is an OUTLIER. He’s known as one of the most gifted athletes to walk through 10th Planet Decatur’s doors. Thomas received his blue belt in record time for 10th Planet Decatur and has been taking out black belts in the gym and competitions. BTW, the Mantis has a 185 lb MMA championship in at least one promotion in the Southeast. Now, “Handsome” Kevin Sherrill will take all that hype about the Mantis and handle it in a predictable way: Handsome Kevin will just run his hands through his hair and wink at the camera. Handsome Kevin is a lifelong grappler, being a state champion wrestler out of Rome, Georgia and earning a wrestling scholarship to the University of Northern Iowa. Handsome Kevin is a brown belt in jiu jitsu and coaches at X3 Sports in Atlanta. Handsome Kevin showed his expertise in Season 3 of the PGF. Handsome Kevin exhibited high-level grappling and supreme showmanship. These gentlemen are “about that life” as they say. Let’s just say, we have no idea what they’ll weigh when they hit the mats – it’s called “handsome weight.” If nothing else is certain, we know these gentlemen will put on a serious show for the fans.
Chase Hannah, brown belt, 10th Planet Atlanta versus Jimmy Green, brown belt, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Savannah Pedro Sauer. Chase Hannah has a renown in the SouthEast as a supremely tough competitor. The lore has it that Elijah “the Bad Guy” Carlton, winner of PGF Season 1, runner-up of PGF Season 2, and High Rollerz champion, was humbled by Chase Hannah back in the day. Jimmy Green comes out of a very competitive Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Savannah which is the current gym of PGF Season 4 competitor Jacob Arp. If Green is anything like Arp, he’ll push the pace and make it exciting. For one, I’m excited to see Chase Hannah in action.
