SBG Idaho athlete, David Akers, kicked off the 2019 MMA competition season with a first round submission win over Aaron Jennings, at Mountain Force MMA 7, January 26 at the Mountain View Events Center in Pocatello, Idaho.
Akers (2-3, MMA, 1-0 MTF) opened the fight circling the outside, using feints to keep Jennings guessing. Jennings switched stances in an attempt to cut the cage off and was met with a kick to the head by Akers. Pressing Akers towards the fence, Jennings came forward with a kick of his own, only to have Akers catch it before ducking out the back and grabbing a rear waist lock. Jennings moved to the cage in an attempt to free himself. Akers quickly climbed to the back, securing both hooks and the fight-ending rear naked choke!
Congratulations David on a fantastic performance! We’re proud of the work you put in preparing and excited to watch you continue to grow as an athlete and martial artist!!!
