Gym of the Month: Rothwell MMA
Elite MMA Shirt Club is an exclusive service, offering its members a unique tee from a prominent MMA gym worldwide. Their goal when starting the Elite club was not to be another “t-shirt” gimmick, but a company for true fans that appreciate where the sport came from. The fighters that grace the octagon don’t just decide one day to be a fighter. It all begins in a gym.
ELITE MMA SHIRT CLUB (FEATURED GYM OF THE MONTH – ROTHWELL MMA SEPTEMBER 2014)
When Ben Rothwell is not tearing up the cage in the UFC he is hard at work running his gym called Rothwell MMA! On September 5th at UFC Fight night, Ben Rothwell knocked out Allistar Overeem in devastating fashion to earn the win and a 50K performance bonus. We were lucky to be there ringside, and what you didn’t see on television was the amount of support Ben received from his gym. We noticed Rothwell MMA shirts in the stands everywhere and knew this was a gym we needed to feature. With that being said, we are proud to announce our featured gym of the month for September, Rothwell MMA!
