Tye Murphy defeated two tough opponents this past Saturday to claim a Silver medal in the Brown Belt Medium Heavy Weight division of the No Gi Pan competition.

Murphy, a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, is one of Maryland's most decorated BJJ competitors, having won the World Championships at the Purple Belt level. Following an early round loss at the 2014 World Championship, Murphy has been on a roll, winning both the Boston and Atlanta International Open before competing in the No Gi Pan.

"This was a good start of the up and coming season for my teammates and I, we all left it out there on the mats," says Murphy.

Tye Murphy currently has a full-time job as a hospice care consultant. Despite being a full-time employee, he trains and teaches at Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts in Elkridge MD on a regular basis.
