  • Dollamur Partners with Former UFC Champion Anthony Pettis

    (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) Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis for 2016.

    Currently ranked the No. 3 lightweight in UFC, Pettis is a dominant force in MMA. Since making his professional debut in 2007, he boasts an 18-4 record. In addition to his impressive resume as a competitor, he also owns a few high-caliber MMA gyms.

    Recently, Pettis opened his newest facility in Milwaukee, Wis., "Pettis Martial Arts," which is equipped with Dollamur's Flexi-Connect® mats, featuring a seamless and tapeless design unique to the brand that vastly reduces setup time. He also owns Roufusport MMA Academy, which is outfitted with Dollamur surfaces. The easy-to-clean signature mats use high-density lightweight foam to cushion falls and takedowns. Surfaces are available in two vinyl types – smooth or tatami – making it the most practical MMA mat for athletes of all abilities.

    "I’m excited to partner with Dollamur, who – hands down – manufactures the best sports surfaces in the world," says Pettis, a native of Milwaukee. "It's comforting knowing that my gyms are equipped with high-quality, durable and safe mats which provide our members with the peace-of-mind to compete at the top level."

    Dollamur mats have a monumental 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.

    "Anthony is a world-renowned athlete and we look forward to supplying his gym with the golden standard of MMA mats," says Mike Swain, Dollamur Vice President of Martial Arts and four-time USA Judo Olympian. "With a larger audience globally than the NFL, MMA is one of the fastest growing sports with nearly a 20 percent increase in the last two years and this is attributed to UFC icons like Anthony."

    As a member of Dollamur’s Athlete Advisory Council, Pettis will make athlete appearances for Dollamur and contribute to social media posts.

  • MMA Melee Q&A with Marti Malloy

    mmameleeHow did you get into Judo? How long have you been doing it?

    I joined a free Judo class at a Morale, Welfare and Recreation gym with my brothers and have been practicing it since I was six years old.

    Do you study any other martial arts?

     I have dabbled in Jiu Jitsu over the years but try to focus mainly on Judo.

     Ronda Rousey is the first woman to ever medal at the Olympics for the USA? (Have there been anymore) (Ronda was the first, I was the second, Kayla Harrison took the first ever Judo gold at the Olympics for the USA in London). Has she been a lot of talk around the Judo community since her UFC super stardom and being in movies etc.?

     Yes, Ronda is one of the most exciting MMA athletes to watch and with her roots in Judo, I am pulling for her. The attention she has been receiving is well-deserved and is the product of an excellent work ethic.

     Do you train any other martial arts or would you ever be interested in transitioning to MMA? Do you watch the UFC or any other MMA organization?

     I am not interested in practicing MMA at this juncture in my martial arts career, although I do enjoy watching. I consider myself a “Judo purist.”

     Some of the best takedowns or flash, as you will, is a lot of Judo Trips and Throws.  It really gets the crowd going.  Are there any fighters you specifically like to watch?

     I enjoy watching Ronda Rousey – she’s an amazing fighter. Having competed against her growing up, I can say that she is nothing but a professional both on and off the mat. I am also a huge fan of Daniel Cormier, who is also an Olympic medalist in wrestling and a great person in and out of the octagon.

     What are you future plans and goals?

     Currently, I’m training around-the-clock with the San Jose State Judo team and my coaches, Mike Swain and Shintaro Nakano, for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, where I hope to win gold. Before then, I will be traveling to compete in elite Olympic qualifiers around the world, including the World Championships this August in Kazakhstan, where I also hope to take the title.

     Additionally, as a Dollamur Sport Surfaces’ athlete, training on their high-performance mats has provided me with the peace-of-mind to push myself to the next level safely and efficiently.

    Do you have any tutorial videos or techniques you can share with us that may be your favorite or go-to move?
