The “King of Sacramento” Returns to The Panda Cup on April 21st

While Max “Pain” Griffin (14-4) continues climbing the ranks of MMA’s elite, inching his way toward some championship hardware to wear around his waist, the heavy-handed welterweight, known throughout the Northern California region as “King of Sacramento,” wishes to add some rings of experience to his Jiu-Jitsu blue belt by entering a submission-only grappling tournament on April 21, 2018: The Panda Cup.

Griffin stated, “The UFC is allowing me to compete at The Panda Cup on 4/21 in Sacramento. This will be a sub only grappling match. Looking forward to a good roll. There will also be kids Pankration and amateur MMA as well.”

In an opportunity for fight fans that is out of this world, “Pain” will assess his gentle art, as trained at Jara BJJ, against Team Alpha Male’s Orion “Galaxy” Cosce in the heart of the McClellan Conference Center.

Not only will ticket-holders be treated to Griffin and Cosce as the main event of four BJJ Superfights, the evening will include ten youth MMA bouts, under the close proximity of the USFL (United States Fight League), and ten C.A.M.O (California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Organization) licensed amateur MMA bouts.
