Team DIRECTVAPOR MMA Wins Big!

DIRECTVAPOR MMATeam DIRECTVAPOR is fighting for your right to vape, and this team of sponsored MMA athletes is proving to be clearly unstoppable. With a nice round of victories, we want to send a huge shoutout to Freddy Assuncao, Andrew Whitney, and Sabah Homasi for their well-deserved and respected wins.

Team DIRECTVAPOR MMA has really been loading up on wins as of late, and we are so proud of all of our sponsored MMA athletes! This past Friday, during Titan FC 40, our three sponsored fighters made a killing, with all three coming out of the cage as winners at the event which went down at the BANKUNITED Center in Coral Gables, Fl. We are especially proud of the ferociously talented Freddy Assuncao, who not only defeated his opponent, Gesias Cavalcante during their match, with a technical submission via a guillotine choke, but also took home the lightweight title as a result. Go Freddy!

Other notable moments of the evening came when DIRECTVAPOR MMA-sponsored Andrew Whitney put down an upset victory against Anderson Dos Santos to come out on top, and securing himself a spot during the finals set for next month. Laying down weighty punches, in the second round at the 3:28 point, the ref put an end to the match, signaling a victory for Whitney. Aiming for the Bantamweight/ 135 lb championship, Whitney proved he has the courage, determination, and skill to fight his way to the top of this sport.

We are also very impressed by the fighting skills displayed by Sabah Homasi, DIRECTVAPOR’s third sponsored fighter of the event who dueled his way to victory. Defeating Jorge Patino with a killer TKO by punches in the second round, it took the “The Punisher” a mere 1:18 into this round to claim himself another win for his MMA resume.

So, congrats to all who’ve fought for the vape fam. We are full of gratitude and awe for these guys who go out there with absolute determination, and manage to come out on top after fighting equally skilled opponents. Go TEAM DIRECTVAPOR!
