ZTS Houston: Pictures and Results

Written By: Barry Laminack

The folks over at ZTS “rolled” into Houston (get it) for the 1st stop in their Texas Two Step series of tournaments. The tourney took place on the UofH campus and grapplers from all over the city turned out for the event. Many grapplers from the MMA community turned out as well. Alex Black, Angel Huerta, Colby Bartholmy, Domingo Pilarte, Evert Gutierrez, Gerzan Chaw, Jose Santibanez, Jeff Rexroad, Kenny Burke, Raul Jiminez, and Tony Concepcion all tested themselves (and sometimes each other) on the mats.

To spice things up, Zebra put a bounty on two of it’s sponsored competitors, Jason Solis (Third Coast MMA) and Drew Lockwood (Elite MMA). Solis would face Robert Yamashita (Elite MMA) and end up winning on points 6-4. Lockwood would go against Paradigm purple belt phenom Evert Gutierrez. Gutierrez would end up winning the match on advantages.
