Ground Zero Grappling 3 check in with Hall, Turnbull, Dagostino

Will Martinez would love nothing better than to get on the mat himself and compete at Ground Zero Grappling.  Martinez hasn’t been able to find a game opponent for himself.  That hasn’t stopped the former professional mixed martial artist and famed coach from putting together some fun, entertaining, competitive grappling matches.

Ground Zero Grappling 3 goes down once again on the waterfront in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday night, April 15th.

One of the names on the card that I was excited to see is Eddie Hall.  Hall is the owner of Hall of Fame Personal Training in Folsom, PA. Hall has worked with many of the region’s mixed martial artists who are looking for strength and conditioning.  Hall has a wrestling background and has only recently started training grappling and is competing out of The Vault BJJ.

MyMMANews reached out to Hall to see how he felt about his first grappling match, and he had Matt “White Chocolate” Turnbull and Kyleigh Dagostino in the house with him.  We got to check in with all three of them as they prepare for this weekend.

Please check out our video on the link above.  Eddie and I talk about some of his favorite clients/friends and learn a little bit about the stand-out wrestler, Dagostino.

Below is the full card.  Subject to change
