Dollamur Sport Surfaces Partners With Former UFC Champion Johny Hendricks
Two-time NCAA Wrestling Champion Joins Growing Athlete Advisory Council
(FORT WORTH, Texas) – Dollamur Sport Surfaces (Dollamur) – the world's leading manufacturer of high-performance sports flooring for mixed martial arts, martial arts, wrestling, gymnastics, cheerleading and yoga – today announces its partnership with American mixed martial artist (MMA) and former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Johny "Bigg Rigg" Hendricks for 2016.
Currently the No. 6 ranked welterweight in UFC, Hendricks is a dominant force in MMA. Since making his professional debut in 2008, he boasts a 17-5 record. Additionally, he was a two-time NCAA wrestling champion (2005, 2006) and four-time All-American at Oklahoma State University.
"Joining the prestigious list of athletes within Dollamur’s Athlete Advisory Council is a thrill and honor," says Hendricks, a native of Ada, Okla. "Dollamur's mats are the highest quality, most durable surfaces in the industry and have always enabled me to push myself to the next level when training or competing."
Dollamur mats have a significant presence in UFC Gyms across 36 states, ranging from 5,000 to 35,000 square feet facilities. The elite foam surface is pivotal in protecting thousands of MMA athletes each year.
"Johny is a UFC icon and with him on Dollamur’s team, we are in good hands," says Mike Swain, Dollamur Vice President of Martial Arts and four-time USA Judo Olympian. "Our Athlete Advisory Council continues to expand – with the likes of UFC star Anthony Pettis, USA Wrestling Olympian Adeline Gray and USA Judo Olympian Marti Malloy – and we know Johny will serve as an ideal ambassador to our wrestling and MMA segments."
As a member of Dollamur’s Athlete Advisory Council, Hendricks will make athlete appearances for Dollamur and contribute to social media posts.
