Jon Delbrugge Wins Second Straight Professional Fight, Confirming Status As Rising Mixed Martial Arts Star

ELKRIDGE, Md., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jon Delbrugge, an instructor at the Crazy 88 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy ( http://baltimoremixedmartialarts.com) and an up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighter, won his second professional MMA bout on Sat., Feb. 2 at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. Delbrugge used the skills he had honed at the academy to score a decisive victory, ending the fight in a submission.

The fight was set for three rounds, each lasting five minutes. Half way into the second round, Delbrugge forced his opponent, Maykon Santos, to turn to his knees from the ground and was able to apply the choke for the finish. "I was able to land some combinations that I had been working on previously during the fight in addition to some grappling that has been a part of my game for a while now," commented Delbrugge.

Crazy 88's head coach, Julius Park, has trained Delbrugge from the very beginning, guiding Delbrugge through previous Operation Octagon amateur lightweight championship wins to his recent signing with Cage Fury Fighting Championships, one of the United States' top MMA organizations.

To ensure that Delbrugge was in top shape for the Atlantic City competition, Park sent him to Thailand for two weeks to hone his Muay Thai skills. Creating this type of network of support is part of Park's philosophy of success. "My past experience has shown me the importance of a team backing martial artists up," noted Park. "Colleagues push you to work out harder and seek the next level, whether technically, physically or competitively. No matter how talented or how persistent a fighter is, to be successful at the highest level, team support is crucial. That's what we do for each other at Crazy 88."

His professional record now 2-0, Delbrugge is training for his next match as well as instructing other students at the academy. While Park himself has won several tournaments, including NAGA and Grapplers Quests, he now focuses on transmitting his love of Jiu-Jitsu and other martial arts styles to all of his students.
