Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

“For me, for the younger guys, I don't care where you're from. If you're an Iowa guy, right, we 'don't like each other,' but as soon as you get on my team, you're on my team. Right? I want to take care of you. And so that's what's exciting for the young guys that want to come in and fight is that, you know, wrestlers are gonna look out for each other. It doesn't matter where you're from. All that's done, behind us. It'd be fun to see these guys, see more guys that don't want to be done competing, and also don't want to wrestle, come over and start climbing the ranks in the MMA world,” says Logan Storley, #4 Ranked Bellator Welterweight and 4X All American for University of Minnesota.

  • There's no need to burn out your kids on a single sport when they're young


  • If you want to make a career out of combat but don’t want to keep wrestling, switch to MMA


  • Don’t overlook any person or any move 


  • Wrestling programs and fan bases are expanding, we talk about some ways to get more people involved in the sport. Why aren’t there as many wrestling fans as MMA fans?
