On June 22, 2013, in Traverse City, Michigan, Wes Dinan will defend his Aggressive Fight League Heavyweight Title. This will be Dinan’s first title defense for Aggressive Fight League. Both Dinan and Jackson are both experienced fighters that love to stand and exchange. Tickets can be purchased at the front desk of Cosens MMA.
The Cosens team is back on track as expected! James Allen won Brett Sbardella’s Spider Submissions Fight League Welter Weight Title on December 8th, 2012, at the Spinning Wheels Arena. James won his fight in his fashion by grinding his opponent into deep water where he feels the most comfortable. It was great to see James come as far as he has. He is an absolute work horse. If you put in the time there are rewards at the end and James is a perfect example of this.
Wesley Dinan won the heavy weight belt of the night with a KO in the first round. This is the first time Wes has had to show his ground skills. He is starting to become extremely comfortable while fighting. Youssef Elghoul made his MMA debut last night. I like to think of Youssef of more as a wrestler but apparently he likes to stand and bang. Youssef won a three round war by unanimous decision.
Nathan Awad lost a three round fight but this guy is getting better and better every fight. These men met our gym requirements to fight for our team. For lack of a better way to say it- these guys went through hell the past 8 weeks. As a coach I took our losses at the previous event very personally and even questioned myself as an instructor. I have made adjustments to our routines and with the requirements we have set for our competitors I am confident this is just the beginning of many wins to come. Not everyone can do what these guys do. They dont just walk into our facility and decide they want to compete with us. They put in hours and hours of training and it shows. I feel very fortunate to have these men fighters. -Charlie Cosens

If you are a woman in Bay City, MI and looking for a great place to lose weight you have found it at Cosens MMA! We are one of the few places in Bay City that offers weight loss classes just for women. If you are sick of going to regular gyms and worrying about people staring at you or feeling uncomfortable, we have the solution for you. We took a poll and asked several women what they hated most about going to the gym. Surprisingly, it wasn’t the work out that was typically the main issue. The issue was that most of them were self-consious and concerned about what others would think of them going to a regular gym. It’s difficult if you’ve never gone to a gym before. There are machines everywhere and it seems like everyone already knows what they’re doing. It can be a very lonely feeling.
At Cosens MMA, we have a weight loss class for women that’s called Women’s Kickboxing and Self Defense. This is an all women class that will help you lose weight and make you more comfortable while you’re working out. You will be surrounded by other women who want to lose weight as well! You will lose weight, learn self-defense, and even learn some kickboxing. The goal of the class is to make you more confident while helping you lose weight and learn self defense.
