Mike Turner – The Brace 2014 Light Heavyweight Champion

Congratulations to Trinity Fighter and Coach Mike “the Turnernator” Turner!

Mike came to the academy on Monday to thank the Trinity MMA team for their help in preparing for this fight, and to show off his new Brace Championship belt. Head Coach Nick Hughes also took the time to thank the team, and to share some of the experiences from the event.
