October 18th, 2013 – Global Proving Ground (GPG) invades Atlanta, and Michigan!
As highly touted GPG continues to conquer the continents of the world, they are led by a series of fighters more different than the next. More couldn’t be said about the fighters engaging in battle this weekend for both TXC Live and NFC Fighting.
Shamir “Bam Bam” Garcia and Sean Huffman are two very different fighters with very different backgrounds, though despite their differences they share the same appetites and motivations of any top-tier athlete in any sport. Both are driven by the desire for victory and the motivation of the children in their respective corners. Their need to lead by example will accompany them as they enter the cage this weekend.
Sean Huffman said, “When I fight, I think of my 3 year old son, Josiah. He makes and keeps me a great warrior and an even better father. He’s what drives me and I have no doubt that he will know that my victory against Roan Carneiro will be for him. This fight is a big deal for me, and I won’t waste the opportunity that NFC Fighting has given me.”
Shamir “Bam Bam” Garcia stated, “Outside of fighting I work with Detroit non-profit organizations that deal with inner city, at-risk youth which also deals with saying no to gun violence. I want to do my part and since kids look up to athletes, I use MMA as a vessel to reach the children. This will be a great fight for me because it’s in my back yard, and I’m anxious & ready! I’m an athlete on a mission, and nothing can stop me!”
GPG co-founder James Jefferson said, “Sean and Shamir are two great examples of athleticism, respect, and motivation. That’s why GPG signed these two amazing fighters. They know what they need to do but more importantly, they are about doing positive work for others. They are true gentleman and also amazing fighters, and that’s what GPG wants.”
Tickets for both events are still available, so get them now!
