A day or so ago I posted a blurb about Team Takedown and how they were training with Xtreme Couture. Team Takedown is a group of standout amateur wrestlers making the conversion to MMA.
Two members of the team will be making their pro MMA debuts next Saturday, July 21 in Oklahoma City at Masters of the Cage XV. Both Jake Rosholt and Eric Bradley will be fighting on the card with Rosholt fighting at light heavyweight against Dusty “Dream Killer” Miller for a title and Bradley fighting at 185 lbs. against Troy Allison.

In addition to Rosholt and Bradley, Team Takedown includes Johny Hendricks. A fourth member, former three-time All-American and Big 12 wrestling champ Shane Roller from Oklahoma State was just recently added to the stable. Roller will begin his MMA training in the Guy Mezger’s Lion’s Den affiliate in Dallas before going to Vegas and training with Xtreme Couture.
