Future bright for Glory MMA and Fitness

In the Kansas City, Missouri suburb of Lee’s Summit “The” James Krause and Zak Cummings are growing an ever so talented pool of martial artists. Krause (27-7) himself has reeled off six straight wins inside the UFC octagon with his latest being a third-round knockout of Sergio Moraes at UFC on ESPN+ 22. Cummings has been handling his business under the UFC banner since 2012 and has amassed an overall record of an impressive 23-7 as a professional.

Leading the charge of young fighters is Grant “The Prophet” Dawson (14-1). Dawson will take on Chas Skelly (18-4) at UFC 246 January 18th to get 2020 started off. Having stepped into the octagon three times with the UFC “The Prophet” has made it look relatively easy. The Dawson/Krause chemistry is unique, and it just oozes confidence and trust in one another as each corner the other. At Featherweight one would think a couple of wins to kick off 2020 would vault Dawson into the top fifteen if not top ten rankings.

Megan Anderson (9-4) packed up from her native Australia after having trained at Glory prior to her second bout with Invicta. An Invicta featherweight title and is the number four ranked women’s featherweight in the world. It’s safe to say that was a good decision and one that has opened other doors as Anderson is now doing the in-cage post-fight interviews for Invicta having learned under the watchful eye of fellow Glory teammate the always smooth Laura Sanko who had the same position within the organization prior to her current role with the UFC. Look for Anderson to challenge for UFC gold in the very near future.

Sean “The Sniper” Woodson (7-0) makes his home at the Wolves’ Den Training Center in the St. Louis suburb of Wentzville, Missouri but recently began cross-training at Glory. Woodson made his successful UFC debut against Kyle Bochniak (8-4) in Boston, Massachusetts back in October. The game plan that Woodson, James Krause, Jordan Dowdy, and Andrew Ebers put together was on point, showcasing great range and takedown defense. With a reach of seventy-nine inches, Woodson will be a problem for any featherweight.

Zak Cummings has a protégé that is slated to make his professional debut in February for FAC in Mikey England. With an All-American wrestling pedigree, England has taken quickly to MMA and by the eye test you can see the chemistry of the Cummings/England duo and as the saying goes the proof is in the pudding. In his last bout as an amateur England was able to best another talented Midwest welterweight Chuckie Brooks. This young man has all the makings of a superstar so don’t be surprised to hear his name come up more and more throughout 2020.

Many of the men and women from Glory have done well on the regional circuits and are on the cusp of breaking into big organizations such as Anthony Gutierrez, Trey Ogden, Jeffery Molina, JW Kiser, Mike Breeden, and Marco Hutch.

With this youth movement going on at Glory you must look at the building blocks or “OG’s” and one that embodies everything Glory is the late William “The Armadillo” Joplin who inside the cage and on the mats was gritting, tough as hell, and had no quit. Outside competition was one of the most respected, well-liked, giving, and selfless people in the world of mixed martial arts

Tim Elliott (15-9-1) is another building block for Glory and is joining his teammate Grant Dawson on the UFC 246 card to take on Askar Askarov (10-0-1) in flyweight action.  Elliott will look to make big waves inside the division and get back in the title hunt.

Martial Arts aside another reason for the success isn’t just inside the gym but outside as well. Krause and Cummings not only mentor the mats and cage but are teaching these high-level athletes about business, branding, how to be a leader, and being a pro’s pro.

Bold Prediction: Wear sunglasses for the bright 2020 for Glory MMA and Fitness as will see title challengers and champions at both the regional and UFC  levels in 2020.
