MMA's Rising Stars: Ryan Beauregard
A judo brown belt and successful high school wrestler with a state championship under his belt, Ryan Beauregard took his game to the next level when he began training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under BJJ black belt Demetrius Ramos at the Tucson Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in December 2004. Amassing over 100 BJJ victories, Beauregard is a Pan Am Finalist, a three-time winner of the Arizona State Champion and a three-time California state champion. He is the current Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lightweight world champion, fighting under the Carlson Gracie team. He recently opened his own academy in Phoenix, where he teaches BJJ to men, women and children of all skill levels.
Beauregard began his MMA career with a stunning unanimous decision win (all three judges scored the bout 27-30) over Aric Nelson at Shark Fights on October 24th. Expect more of the same for this up-and-comer!
