The founder of Chester Students’ Union’s MMA (Mixed Martial
Arts) Club has been crowned the Almighty Fighting Champion 2016.
Jordan Baxter, 24, (pictured left) who gained both his undergraduate and
Master’s degrees from the University, went up against some of the country’s
best MMA fighters at the Almighty Fighting Championships held in Morley, Leeds.
Jordan, who graduated in 2015, was classed in the 57kg
flyweight category. He said: “It was a great contest and I fought against a
skilled opponent to win the title. I’m very happy with both the result and the
performance. I’d like to thank everyone who helped me through this fight camp
and prepared me for the fight.”
Jordan established Chester Students’ Union’s (CSU) MMA Club
approximately five years ago when he was an undergraduate student, studying for
a BSc in Sport and Exercise Sciences (Performance Analysis). The Club has since
gone from strength to strength with more new members joining each year.
Ethan Wade, CSU’s Vice-President (Activities) added: “We are
really proud of Jordan’s achievements and are thankful for all of the hard work
that he has put in to the MMA Club. The title is well-deserved!”
