Team Rhino Kicks Ass. Undefeated in 2010.
Team Rhino has started off 2010 in pugilistic style, notching six wins in six fights in January. As most of you know, Ranger Up only sponsors fighters with military backgrounds and we call these Crusaders of the Cage Team Rhino. It’s our way of giving back to the guys who defend our freedom and want to pursue their octagon dreams. This month we got behind six guys, all of whom showed their indomitable spirit and accomplished their Ranger mission in venues across the country.
Former Marine Brian Vanhoven kickedstarted this party with a win against a game Mike Cook, securing a TKO in the 2nd round. Then Georgia National Guardsman Kenny Jackson submitted Matt Hughes disciple Liko Mahoe halfway through the first round at MMA Big Show. Super heavyweight and active Army Soldier Brandon Sayles continued the streak with a first round TKO win in Columbus, Georgia.
Sergeant Tony Sills’ victory was probably the most dominant. He successfully convinced his opponent that it wasn’t in his best interest to show up. He didn’t, so Sills won by default. Not to be outdone, former LRSD soldier Alex Soto only needed forty-five seconds to slap an armbar on his opponent and former Ranger Gert Kocani TKO’d Greg Jackson protégé Diego Brandao in the second round to cap off a perfect month for Team Rhino.
As a token of our appreciation, each Team Rhino fighter will receive a $10,000 bonus. Okay that’s bullshit. A bottle of Maker’s Mark, an inflatable woman, and a dozen Shamwow’s is as good as it gets. Congrats, guys!
