Names likes Rua, Diaz, Pettis, Machida, Mayweather, Petrosyan, Dekkers, Emelianenko and of course Gracie are forever solidified as some of the greatest names in combat sports history. While the list goes on, there is another name that could quite possibly be added to the list, one that many fans of mixed martial arts are already familiar with.
John Hackleman, known to many as the Pit Master or “the guy that trained Chuck Liddell”, has passed his legacy and knowledge on to his only son, John Hackleman Jr (2-0-0). A pure product of his environment, Hackleman Jr has all the makings of a future champion. Having been raised in the martial way from childhood by his father, he also had the privilege of a front row seat to former UFC light-heavyweight champ, Chuck Liddell’s rapid rise to stardom.
After amassing a nice amateur record of 7-2, it was time to go pro. While only two pro fights rest under his belt thus far, both were won in the first round via brutal TKO, the latest being an eleven second finish under the RFA (Resurrection Fighting Allaince) banner. In return for the quick finish, John was awarded a four-fight deal with the organization and now plans to capture the promotion’s middleweight title. Being in one of the top B-leagues to the UFC, it’s a safe bet that the Pit Master will one day get to corner his own son in the Octagon.
