CJ Cochran, an MMA fighter trained at Elite Combat Martial Arts and Fitness in Galax, took home his first win on April 27 at “Ring of Dreams” in Winston-Salem, N.C., and is preparing for his next fight.
Unlike some fighters, Cochran isn't battling for gold or glory.
He’s doing it for his mom, and for his future.
Master trainer Heather Pyles of Elite Combat said that Cochran,18, is focused on continuing his training and studying business so that he can one day open his own gym.
