Poker Star wins MMA Match

by Jeremy

While many pro poker players like Andrew Robl do some mixed martial arts training, and talk about getting into the cage, Vancouver native Terrence Chan actually won a real MMA fight. He was on the card for a recent Battlefield Fight League 11 event in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Chan controlled the fight throughout the first round as he got on top of his opponent, and hit him with numerous shots. As the first round came to a close, Chan got his opponent in an arm bar, but the bell rang before the opposing fighter tapped out.

The second round opened kind of slow with both fighters doing a lot of grappling. However, Chan eventually got a double mount on his opponent, and finished him off with strikes a few minutes into the second round.

He added a third bracelet in the 2009 SCOOP by taking down the Event #39 $1,050 Limit Hold’em Six-Max ($83,030).
