Mixed Martial Arts fighters racked up awards at a recent competition.
Madisonville's Hayes MMA Team participated at the North American grappling association's Championship in Nashville, Tennessee this past weekend with their 21 fighter team.
The gym took home 10 separate 1st place, 17 separate 2nd place and two 3rd place awards.
"Well NAGA is one of the biggest tournaments in the world and it's the nationals and it was in Nashville, Tennessee and we did a real good job and we worked and trained hard together," says Gage Mitchell.
" We do come from a very small town and we are such a small gym that most people don't know who we are," says Caity Duncan. "But, when we go to big tournaments and stuff like that it shows that not only do we train hard but we can prove it"
There were over 1,500 fighters at this competition and Hayes MMA is competing again at Hopkins Central High School this Saturday.
