Hyder Amil is an up-and-coming young fighter training out of Gil Melendez's El Nino training center. Here he shares with us, how he got involved in MMA and fell in love with the sport.
Why I Fight
I fight due to a culmination of reasons- mixed martial arts or mma is the combination of my passion for creativity, discipline, health, self-defense, competition and is also great way to relieve stress. MMA allows one to have unrestricted self-expression that other sports cannot achieve. Fighting or mixed martial arts seemed like a natural transition for me.
Team Diamond's own Eric Fletter was privileged to attend the Fort Bragg Army Combatives Invitational and watch the competition as well as learn from UFC fighter and US Army Sniper Tim Kennedy.
Eric took some great pictures of the event and 10% of Gross Sales from all Combatives Team orders following the event will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. This is a great cause. Please check them out and donate!
