Come join us on July 16, at 5 pm as we support local mixed martial arts fighter Cody Law as he looks to lengthen his 3-0-0 win streak against Theodore Macuka!
Law, a Forest Hills native got his start wrestling for the Forest Hills High school wrestling team. Upon graduation, Law attended Pennsylvania State University, which is known for having one of the most successful wrestling teams at the time, having won the NCAA Division I’s team titles in the last three seasons at that time.
As a junior, he became the top-ranked wrestler in the country and posted a record of 17-1 during the regular season. During the post-season, he won a PSAC conference title and became an All-American with a fourth-place finish at the NCAA DII championships. As a senior, he had his most successful season, compiling a record of 25 wins and 2 losses (both of those losses to Division I athletes), winning the National Championship, and becoming a two-time All-American.
Law began his amateur MMA career a couple of months after he graduated from UPJ and amassed a 5-0 record with three stoppage wins (two submissions, one knockout) and two decisions. On September 1, 2020, Law announced that he had signed a contract with Bellator MMA.
