Professional Fighter - Chris Gates

In Tupelo Mississippi, the general population has yet to realize the popularity of MMA worldwide even though they have one of the South's best schools right there in town at Tupelo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The head trainer at the school, Chris Gates, is professional in every sense of the word.

My first encounter with Chris left me with an impression of a "quiet giant" kind of guy. He seems very down to earth and doesn't care for a lot of fluff and he doesn't waste a lot of words. But Chris is passionate about training fighters and from what I have seen, he is well qualified to do so. is a "fighter finder" website.

If you have the chance to meet Chris, DO NOT pass up the chance to do so. If you know Chris, tell him you saw this article and to keep up the good work he is doing.
