Matt Hill and his Primal Nutrition brand have become valuable contributors to the mixed martial arts community. Every one involved in combat sports knows how important sponsors are and Primal continues to be generous with fighters and promotions to keep the sport thriving. Matt knows what it’s like to try and nail down sponsors as he once aspired to be a professional cage fighter. Injuries have derailed that plan, but not enough to keep him from his grappling.
On October 19th in South Philly’s 23oo Arena, Hill will take on Brian Sheehan in a super-heavyweight, brown-belt no-gi bout at Fight To Win 128. Matt is very familiar with Sheehan and knows that he has to be at the top of his game to come away with a victory. He has been rolling with some of the very strong Martinez Fight Team to prepare. His brother, Chris, is also a valuable training partner and coach who is a 10th Planet guy. I stopped into Northeast Philadelphia to speak with Matt Hill himself. Please check out our video in the link above.
Fight To Win has become one of the most respected and popular BJJ and grappling promotions and has come to Philadelphia several times. Their events are streamed on Flograppling.com.
