    Default Team Takedown’s Johny Hendricks likely to make MMA debut in September

    FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that former four-time NCAA All-American amateur wrestler Johny Hendricks will likely make his MMA debut in late-September on a MMA card to be held in Oklahoma.


    Hendricks was an NCAA Division I champion at 165 pounds in 2005 and 2006 while competing for Oklahoma State.


    He is a member of Team Takedown, which is a fight team started with the intent of helping standout wrestlers from the collegiate ranks convert to MMA.


    Other members of Team Takedown include fellow OSU alums Jake Rosholt and Shane Roller along with former Penn State wrestler Eric Bradley.
    Hendricks, Rosholt, and Bradley all train with Randy Couture at Xtreme Couture in Vegas while Roller is currently training with Guy Mezger at the Lions Den locations in Dallas.


    Both Rosholt and Bradley made their debuts on July 21 at a Masters of the Cage event in Oklahoma. Rosholt submitted Dusty Miller at 3:40 of the first round while Bradley tapped Troy Allison at 2:41 of the first.


    Bradley is also signed to EliteXC and will be fighting on a future card.

    Bradley won a collegiate boxing championship when he was unable to wrestle due to neck injuries.
    I am not sure how tough a tourament collegiate nationals in boxing is. I do not know how many colleges have boxing.

    Videos of Rosholt, and Bradley in their debut fights are in the link above. Both looked impressive. Hendricks though is the guy that I'm really excited to see.
