Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
The World Cup of Mixed Martial Arts (WCMMA™) is pleased to announce that Navy SEAL Terry “Mother” Moy has been appointed as its liason to the United States military. In this position he will coordinate the WCMMA activities with the various arms of the military, while also evaluating WCMMA athlete’s training techniques that could be employed back into Special Forces training.
“Terry epitomized the title of SEAL - the special United States Navy: Sea, Air and Land Forces. He is a true model SEAL who was one of the first under the program initiated by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 when he spoke in front of Congress authorizing the establishment of the Navy SEALs” stated Ed Catucci, Director of the WCMMA. The WCMMA’s core values are Honor, Respect and Discipline, and it seeks to have a tight bond with the military. “There could be no better person than Terry Moy to represent the World Cup Of Mixed Martial Arts to the military, as he lives the values of the WCMMA, and will be a model for all of our athletes” stated Catucci. Watch interview with SEAL Terry Moy.
The SEALs are the Special Operations Forces of the U.S. Navy, employed in unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, direct action, Counter-Terrorism, hostage rescue, and special reconnaissance operations. Terry graduated in the 1960 class of BUD/s 35 (Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL school), and he became an instructor who trained decades of SEALs thereafter including governor / wrestler Jesse Ventura. Today Terry is an active consultant back to Navy SEAL training programs where his years of experience help develop future SEAL teams.
“Terry is 72 and is a real G.I. Joe who works out every day and is in better shape than most men half his age” states Catucci. “What I love about the WCMMA is the Nation vs Nation aspect, and the discipline, and respect shown to one another,” said Terry Moy.

Also that same evening the WCMMA's Heavyweight World Title will be on the line as Russian National Sambo Champion Alexey Oleinik will be facing two time FILA Grappling World Champion, Kelly Anundson of the United States.
