  • USCS Best of 2011 Awards: Andy Acker Wins Wisconsin's Grappler of the Year In a Talented Field

    The class of athletes vying for Wisconsin's Grappler of the Year honor was as talented in 2011 as it has ever been. Consisting of two Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts, an Olympic wrestler, and two rapidly rising prospects, the selection process was extremely difficult. But in the end it was Andy Acker who shone the brightest throughout the course of the year. With wins in a number of top competitions, the Twisted Fitness purple belt known as "Shaggy" further exploded onto the state's jiu jitsu scene claiming his stake as one of the best in the Midwest. "2011 was a great year for me for a couple of big reasons," Acker told US Combat Sports in an interview earlie...
  • USCS Best of Awards: Sherron Leggett Earns Wisconsin's Knockout of the Year With a Brutal Slam Over Anderson

    The view from the top must have been so much better than the view from the bottom for Sherron "Rob Roy" Leggett. For those unfamiliar with Leggett's stint within World Extreme Cagefighting, the former Agallar Combative Systems fighter suffered a brutal slam on his head back in 2007 at WEC 29 against Jamie Varner that led to a first round TKO defeat. But the loss didn't come without Leggett learning a lesson or two. Fully reminiscent of the slam, "Rob Roy" turned the tables last year within the first round of the Combat USA lightweight tournament against Dennis Anderson by using a very similar maneuver that would earn him the victory and the USCS Knockout of the Year.
  • USCS Best of 2011 Awards: Jameel Massouh Earns Wisconsin's Submission of the Year with Rare Twister

    Over the past few years Wisconsin's Submission of the Year has stood out as one of the most hotly contested races throughout the award campaigns. And this year was no different. In a category so stacked with slick submissions that one left off the list has undoubtedly emerged as the most high profile and attracted a legion of supporters such as Eric "Red" Schafer and Casey Blaso. If you haven't seen Courtnie Korpela's nationally televised rear-naked choke do so now. But for our money the most deserving finish of the year occurred up north in April as Jameel "The Real Deal" Massouh joined just a handful of mixed martial artists to successfully pull off a T...
