Warrior Promotions Fighter Management are pleased to announce they have added to their extensive fighter roster with the signing of the German Heavyweight Markus “The Bavarian Lion” Grosse.

Grosse hails from the Bavarian region of Germany and has competed in various Martial Arts since 1997. A former Kickboxer with a record of 32-2-0. Grosse has fought across Europe and Middle East, winning titles and various tournaments before turning his attention to MMA at the start of 2009.

Standing at 6’5 / 193cm and weighing around 105 kg/ 230 lbs, this 32 year old cuts an imposing figure and is known as the ‘Bavarian Lion’ due to his workrate and strength inside the squared circle. After making the switch to MMA earlier this year, Grosse showed his commitment to his new profession by flying out to train with the world famous American Top Team in Florida, USA.

On his return to Europe, Grosse began training under the tutelage of Karl Tanswell (head of Straight Blast Gym UK) in Manchester, England. At the SBG Manchester HQ, Grosse continued to work on his ground game and has training in both BJJ and Submission Wrestling in preparation for his MMA debut later this year. The German fighter has even flown out Karl Tanswell to his homeland for Seminars and extra training.

The ‘Bavarian Lion’ was first spotted by Midrar Sports Management of Jordan when their founder trained with the powerful striker at his own gym, located outside of Munich. MSM were was so taken with Grosse’s natural abilities that they contacted Warrior Promotions to manage his new MMA career.

When asked on his future plans Grosse said he was ‘keen to start his MMA career in the UK as he believes it is the best place in Europe to test his new found skills’. Everyone at WPFM anticipates great things from this exciting newcomer to the Warrior ranks and wish Markus all the best in his MMA career. As a result Warrior Promotions are looking to secure Grosse 2 or 3 fights before the end of the year.
