NASHVILLE, Tenn. – We here at announced exclusively last week, 2004 U.S. Judo Olympian Rhadi Ferguson is making the move to professional mixed martial arts. This week, Ferguson made the trek to Nashville MMA to meet up with his manager Ed Clay, and help Dave “Pee Wee” Herman train for his upcoming Sengoku fight in March.

Ferguson, who is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Ricardo Liborio, is also a strength and conditioning coach. He has helped train such fighters as Brandon Vera, Jeff Monson, and Bobby Lashley, to name a few. As he ventures into MMA, and develops his striking skills, he in turn, has a lot to offer his training partners, and can teach them as well.

In the following videos you will see Ferguson not only himself training, but also him helping others. Stay tuned to as we will be bringing you updates, and documenting Dr. Rhadi Fergosun’s journey into MMA.
