Even though his opponent Weber Almeida, in the Bellator298 event, came with a reputation with a strong takedown defense, Lucas came prepared and ready.
LUCAS CONTINUES HIS FATHER'S LEGACY
The son of former UFC fighter Chris "The Westside Strangler" Brennan, Lucas was first introduced to combat sports at the age of 12. Now, at 23 years old, the legacy continues at the guide of his dad, who is also his head coach..
Chris Brennan, founder of Next Generation MMA in Frisco Texas, and Tilted Concepts Director of Marketing Michael-David Reilly were discussing the outcome of the Bellator298 fight, and Chris said, "Well, we drilled that knee 1,000 times in camp, and again backstage before we walked out. It was bound to land. Weber had much better takedown defense than the last time we saw him fight. He (Lucas) was obviously happy with the outcome, but we're ready to move forward."
TUNE UP SALON & BALANCED FOODS SPONSORSHIP
"We are grateful for the support of Tune Up; The Manly Salon and Balanced Foods. We couldn't do this without great companies like yours behind us." Chris said.
Tilted Concepts CEO Anthony Milton said, "Supporting Lucas was a no-brainer. A Texas up and coming fighter with grit to do what it takes and put in the work to win. That's exactly how we operate as an organization. When I heard of the father/son legacy that Chris & Lucas had going on, I knew that's something we could get behind for both brands."
Anthony continued, "We're all proud of Lucas for his win. He gave a good fight and never gave up. That's what it takes. He has a great career ahead of him and we're proud of the partnership we've started together."
When Lucas was asked what's next, he said, "You'll be seeing me before 2024!", and we are proud to be part of his journey!
