'The Big Frog' coming to Mentor MMA gym

A Mentor gym continues to bring in big-name talent to help train its mixed martial arts fighters. The latest visitor to GriffonRawl MMA Academy will be Jeff “The Big Frog” Curran.

Jeff is a pioneer of MMA as he has competed in 49 professional bouts; is a UFC, PRIDE & Strikeforce vet; and also is a BJJ Black Belt under Pedro Sauer, says gym owner/head instructor Jason Dent.

“Annually, we bring in a well-known, big-name, world-class fighter to help hone the skills of our team members and students,” says Dent, a pro MMA competitor and 2009 participant on reality show “The Ultimate Fighter.”

A Gi/NoGi BJJ seminar and meet & greet with Curran is 2-4 p.m., April 6, at the Academy, 6090 Pinecone Dr. Pictures and autographs will follow the seminar. Pre-registration cost is $50 for Gi or NoGi, or $80 for both.

“Jeff has opened up his schedule to allow time for two private, one-hour lessons on Friday night, April 5,” Dent added. “These lessons are on a first-come, first-served basis.”

To book a private session, see Dent at the gym for scheduling and rates.
