On 8th November 2014 Headhunters MMA fighter and coach Stephen “Fantana” Gillespie competed in his first China Open, the Guangdong BJJ Open in Shenzhen, in the white belt under 85 kg and open weight categories. Despite being put out in his first match by a “very large opponent”, Stephen went on to win gold in both categories with deadly panache: one 2 point win, 3 submissions and a deadly throw that broke his opponent’s shoulder (ouch!). Well done to Gillespie! We look forward to hearing of his future conquests in the Far East. (Stephen currently trains with Aranha BJJ Guangzhou in China).
