podium finish for Hudson at IMMAF European Championships

The IMMAF is the leading amateur governing body for the Sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA); between the 18-23rd June the best amateur MMA athletes descended upon Bucharest, Romania for the annual IMMAF European Championships. 

Representing GBR in the welterweight category was Josh Hudson. In the round of 1/16 Josh put on a dominant performance stopping his Austrian opponent Aladdin Bosankic via TKO early in the second round. 

In the round of 1/8 Josh faced Bozhidar Ivanov (Bulgaria); a measured performance saw Josh dominate all three rounds & a judge's decision to advance into the Semi-Finals. 

In the semi-final Josh faced Isakov Issa (Belgium), the number 2 seeded athlete in the draw; in a tough contest Josh struggled to overcome the strong wrestling of the Belgium; & had to settle for a 3rd place finish. 

A great first IMMAF outing for Josh; who qualifies with his medal to the World Championships in Bahrain in November; congratulations from everyone at the Academy!
