On Nov. 8th 2014 in Sullivan, Mo. at Cage Championships 50 a history making MMA bout between Garrett Holeve also known as G-Money and David Steffan took place.
For the first time in MMA history two Adaptive athletes meet in a sanctioned MMA bout. These two men demonstrated great skill in both stand up and BJJ.
Holeve who was born with Down Syndrome sued the Florida State Boxing Commission and other organizations he views as standing in the way of him achieving his dream. Last August, minutes before the opening bell, the boxing commission ordered the cancellation of a bout between Holeve and Steffan, a Special Olympian with cerebral palsy.
This past weekend the fight happened in Missouri and Holeve nabbed a title with the win.
