"Combat Turf™ is a superior product that can only add to the performance and usability of a facility" -Matt Riggs Sporturf Business Director

Sporturf™ has joined forces with UFC MMA #2 Welterweight Tyron Woodley. In his UFC debut, Tyron executed an impressive 36-second KO of Jay Heiron- and put the welterweight division on notice. A previously targeted welterweight title bout between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley is now official as the UFC 201 headliner. UFC 201 takes place at Phillips Arena in Atlanta on July 30.

Tyron is also the owner of ATT Evolution the premier fitness center specializing in mixed martial arts in Brentwood, Missouri. The center was founded by ranked UFC fighter Tyron Woodley and his wife Averi. ATT Evolution is focused on providing training in wrestling, boxing, Jui-Jitsu and Muay Thai that clients of all experience levels can grasp.

As soon as a client walks in the facility it is impossible to miss the striking red and black Combat Turf™ that is spread throughout the gym. According to Woodley, “I definitely think that Combat Turf™ is a competitive advantage. I don’t think any mixed martial artist gym in St. Louis has Combat Turf™.”

Matt Riggs, Business Director for Sporturf™, wholeheartedly agrees with Woodley, adding that, “Combat Turf™ is a superior product that can only add to the performance and usability of a facility. This partnership was such an incredible experience and it was an honor to be able to join forces with one of the top athletes in the MMA. We hope our partnership with Tyron and development of Combat Turf™ helps to promote the standards and values of Sporturf™ for years to come.”
