Carlson Gracie Team MMA Takes on Invasion Chicago!

March 19th, 2012


CutThroat MMA - Invasion Aurora

Chicago, Illinois (IL) -- On Friday the 27th of April 2012 at the Congress Theater in Chicago, Carlson Gracie Team MMA will have an opportunity to add a second CutThroat MMA title to the camp.


Carlson Gracie Team MMA has several top contenders in the CutThroat ranks, with one champion. That could change at Invasion Chicago as Tom Shoaff joins fellow Carlson Gracie Team fighter Danny Morales on the card. Danny will be defending his Welterweight title on the 27th, and Tom will be fighting to take the Lightweight title from the current champion.


Danny took the Welterweight title at Invasion 3 by escaping a flying armbar attempt and immediately going to the ground and pound game, which earned him a TKO victory. His first title defense will not be a walkthrough though. He will be defending the Welterweight title against the former Light Heavyweight champion and former Middleweight contender, David Booth. If he is able to successfully to defend his title, there might be more reason to celebrate as Tom Shoaff has his own title fight that night.


After defeating Anthony Nichols by armbar at Invasion Aurora, Tom Shoaff will be making the move from Welterweight down to Lightweight. The move in weight classes will give Tom the opportunity to immediately go after the CutThroat Lightweight title, which Eric Rasmussen currently holds. Tom will look to defeat Eric for the title either via knockout or submission. If he is sucessful, he will join Danny as a current CutThroat champion.
