We are excited to announce that Team Ultimate’s Troy Sheridan will be a part of the NAFC Knockout Kings’ Road To Glory 8 Man Tournament in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday May 11th! This will be a one day tournament where competitors could be fighting up to 3 times in one evening. The winner of the tournament will receive a contract for Glory.

Here are some exclusive pre-fight comments and thoughts from Troy:
“It is a huge opportunity to compete in this event. A win in this tournament will allow me to move forward in my athletic career to compete in Glory in the future. My training has been picking up lately. Luckily, I have been keeping in good shape and training consistently the entire time. Stepping in with only a few weeks notice will not be a problem. I am excited to get back in there to represent Team Ultimate!”
Be sure to wish Troy the best of luck when you see him or through his Twitter (@SheridanMMA) account. We’ll keep you posted if there is any way to watch this event from home.
