Idaho is known for ass kicking potatos not fighters so I could only think of two off the top of my head.

The late Justin Eilers: lived in Nampa (Boise area) and trained at Team Hardcore. (Met him personally and he was an awesome guy) the list of guys he fought was impressive. RIP

Trevor Prangley: UFC/Strikeforce Vet

Lives and trains in Couer D' Alene, Idaho where he runs the Lion's Den Team Idaho.


Like I said not much but there is alot of talent coming up through the ranks right now.

Yeah what he said, plus Gilbert milendez

And although its not MMA, the best 135 pound Bjj competitor in the world right now, Caio Terra, runs a bjj class in my city as well as Pleasant HIll, where he teaches Nate and Nick Diaz.

The Louisville Ky area MMA scene is fairly bare. No notable fighters from the area really, but Junie Browning isnt to far away

we also have a BJJ world champion Luiz Claudio, technically he lives in brazil but one of his best students owns a school who is my instructors' main instructor. and he also makes regular trips up as well as traveling the world teaching seminars. the guy is a beast and hes only like 145lbs naturally.

a hl vid of his team.

I live in Iowa.

We were holding MMA cards back when it was called NHB. There is usually at least one fighter from Iowa on every Zuffa card.

dragging up an old post I know but I had the pleasure of training with Luiz Claudio again on monday and will hopefully be attending his seminar at my gym next monday. he is one of Rickson Gracies best black belts. I really wish I was old enough (and had the cash) to go down to Rio and train under him like some of the monkey bar gets to. Its really an honor for me to be associated with him and his team.
