Roscrea’s Adrian Elbert has been crowned the Cage Ring Championship Middleweight Champion after a gruelling split decision win over Jason Quinn.
Elbert, who was coming off the back of two losses, and jumped at the opportunity and his attitude payed off when the judges gave him the win via split decision.
A gruelling ground battle was had with the majority of the crowd feeling Elbert had done enough despite being 10kg lighter than his opponent.
Fighting out of Husaria Fight Team in Naas, Elbert has trained long and hard for this win and this will certainly inspire kids and adults alike to take up some form of MMA.
Elbert also trains in Roscrea in what is now known as John Nash’s Dungeon his constant work and training has now finally paid off as you can see the delight on his face.
A fantastic achievement and we look forward to seeing more from him as he defends the coveted title.
