Submission 1000 II: 'Mad' Jack Magee

Submission 1000 is the mini-no-gi grappling event that takes part within the MMA tournament known as the Lockdown Fighting Championships. The forthcoming event, held at the Liquid and Envy Nightclub in Stevenage on the 2nd July promises to be even more thrilling than the first!

Q: Hey Jack, please give us a brief resume of your training, height, wieght stats and fight record (grappling and/or mma)?

A: I train where ever and when ever I can. I love long grueling sessions with Valmyr Neto - 1 hour long rolls. I train with whoever is down to train. I was in Brazil training for 1 year every day 3 times a day and I also train with other pros when I can. I do lots of running cross country and skate boarding. I lift weights hardly ever, but rolling keeps me strong!

Q: Why 'Mad'? Would that describe your style?

A: My style is crazy! I see myself as a ninja of BJJ!!!! The 'Mad' name comes from my style outside the cage. I live where ever I can, train, spend most my time sleeping on gym floors, mates' sofas and tents.

Q: You are a brown under Gordo - how often do you train in Brazil?

A: I have been to Brazil 3 times I owe alot to Dennis Asche who has helped me out a lot and I always stay at Connection Rio. I have stayed with Gordo Jiu Jitsu since I was 17 when he was teaching at Gracie Barra.

Q: Looking at the fighters in the Submission 1000, who do you most fancy meeting up against?

A: I'd love to go against the weakest and most inexperienced so I can do lots of crazy stuff............If I'm honest, I would say the Rasberry Ape - he's very skilled and I have a lot of respect for what he has achieved. But when we start to roll, that's gonna be put on hold. I think we will have a good fight.[if we meet].

Q: The prize is £2000!!! What would you do with that money?

A: I would be very tempted to stop at Heathrow on the way home and go back to Brazil with my boys at ConnectionRrio and Gordo Jiu Jitsu but I dont know, I have a lot of students now who I am training with and my classes are getting bigger. I'd probably by myself a van and some mats so I could sleep in my van and travel around teaching BJJ.

Q: Cheers Jack, look forward to seeing you fight!

A: Thanks very much for this opportunity to be awesome x
