This past Saturday saw Carlson Gracie Essex and SDMMA fighter Paul Harper continue his undefeated run in MMA and win the UCF Featherweight Title Belt! Paul again displayed his jiujitsu skills with a quick submission via armbar at 1min22secs of the first round.

Carlson Gracie Essex and Coach Alain Pozo are incredibly proud of Paul, and look forward to seeing him continue his rise up the UK Featherweight Rankings.

Special thanks to Carlson Gracie Blackbelt Demetrius Ramos and fellow Carlson Gracie MMA fighter Mark Armstrong, who alongside Alain and Shane Ruffell prepared Paul backstage and stood in his corner for this bout.
