Thanks to Steadfast video for the mixed footage of my friend Jim Alers, great guy, UFC fighter and overall legend. I put together a little piece, has a great track.
Jim is a grappler and a boxer. Although he excelled as a wrestler in high school Jim chose to go a different route after graduation and moved to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida to major in Elementary Education. While living in Orlando, Jim quickly sought out the feeling of competition that he had grown to love in high school. He soon started Brazilian Jiujitsu at Gracie Barra Orlando. Jim knew he belonged on the mats and began training with the MMA team. Jim has been training since late 2005 and has been in the gym almost every day since.
He was the Cage Warriors Featherweight Champion and is now signed to the UFC.
