// Meet the Coach

Brian Ebersole is what you would call a “journeyman” in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Since the end of his Division I collegiate wrestling career, he’s traveled throughout much of the U.S. and Australia in search of fights and ultimately developing his professional career as much as he can. It’s all been part of the relentless pursuit of his goals and more than anything, Brian has always been willing to work harder than “the other guy”.

Brian made his unlikely UFC debut against the legendary Chris Lytle at UFC 127 on February 2011 in Sydney, Australia. Scoring a victory by unanimous decision and earning well deserved “Fight of the Night” honors instantly got people’s attention and set him on his way to becoming an MMA master. Two subsequent wins over Dennis Hallman and Claude Patrick have brought his UFC record to a perfect 3-0.

Now a seasoned veteran in the sport, Brian has posted 65 professional fights with 49 wins and with a so-called “iron chin”, one of his most note-worthy achievements is the fact that he’s never been knocked out in any one of those 65 bouts. He’s also earned a reputation as a scrappy and somewhat unorthodox, stand-up fighter, as well as one of the most dominant wrestlers in MMA, with a rock-solid defense to boot.

In addition to his prowess as a fighter, Brian is also one hell-of-a coach. With a warm and humorous personality, you would be hard pressed to leave a training session with him feeling anything less than empowered and inspired. Through all his incredible success, he still remains a humble guy with incredible patience, knowledge and skill that make him the perfect choice to head-up the MMA program here at Tiger Muay Thai & MMA Training Camp, Phuket, Thailand.

// Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (Gi/No-Gi)

Tiger Muay Thai & MMA offer both Gi and No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu twice daily for all skill levels. The mixing of skill levels is an extension of Coach Ebersole’s unique training philosophy. “I’ve
always said that I can learn from rolling with a white belt,” he claims.

The program is designed and monitored by a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and the evening class is currently under the tutelage of two-stripe Purple Belt, Wiktor Svennson. Wiktor offers a wealth of knowledge and years of professional Mixed Martial Arts experience to his classes.
