Last Sunday, Rise Combat kicked off their first sanctioned event showcasing Tucson's local talent in the Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu community. This event was the first of it's kind in Tucson and the response was amazing. Inverse had a great showing with 8 athletes competing in the sub-only rule set. The team secured two submission victories by Ismat Abdulhamid (flying armbar) and Gabe Cordova (triangle). Stay tuned for more "Rise of the Prospects" in the future.
