JD Wins Gold in Rome

On October 8th JD Hylton fought in Italy as part of the England MMA team at the 2009 ISKA Amateur European Championships.

He dropped his opponent in the first minute with a right hand and finished by putting him to sleep with a Brabo/Darce choke to take the GOLD medal. We later discovered that, according to the Sherdog website, his opponent had over 20 professional MMA fights!!

Congratulations from all his training partners at the gym.
