University of Wyoming wrestling alumni, Archie Colgan, prepares for his biggest fight of the season in Chicago at Bellator 288 MMA (mixed martial arts).
Colgan, who is now a professional MMA fighter, is also a UW wrestling alumni. Colgan started his UW career in 2013 and graduated in 2018. His collegiate record was 111-41, and in his MMA career has fought a total of eight fights over three years. His record this season is 5-0.
Transitioning from the mat to the cage, Colgan feels as though he was very prepared for this career change due to his experience with wrestling.
