Submission specialists in the MMA world often sense weakness from a mile away and can sniff out tap outs with the keen nose of a seasoned bloodhound. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a golden grizzly using his floor wizardry to maximum effect in Legacy Fighting Alliance at 27 years young. A professional mixed martial artist since June 2013 and representing Ceasar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Sean Cerveny owns an undefeated 5-0 professional record with all five of his pro victories coming via submission All five of Cerveny’s wins as a pro-MMA fighter have come before the end of the first round with none of those victories have made it into the hands of the judges. He has also fought for Fury Fighting Championship a Texas-based MMA promotion. Cerveny is currently 1-0 under the banner of Legacy Fighting Alliance
In his MMA debut at UCC 15, he faced Virgilio Avila and went on to submit him via ankle lock in the first round. Cervany also tapped out Chris Lowh in round one via heel hook at Art of War Productions Yakuza Moon. Then at Hoplite Fight Productions Tactical Violence, he submitted Ramoni Koeut in the first round. In his one and only fight for Fury Fighting Championship at Fury FC 33, Cerveny took on Joel Scott and tapped him out in round number one via ankle lock.
In his debut outing for Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 80, He faced Edwin Cooper Jr and submitted him via armbar in the first round to notch the fifth submission victory of his professional career along with win number one in LFA. The judges are never needed when this general of the ground takes command!
With multiple alumni from Legacy Fighting Alliance having made the leap of faith from DWTNCS to the UFC like season three contract winner Brendan Allen, Cerveny would be a prime candidate for the fourth installment of the series with his unique and unorthodox ground arsenal from ankle locks to heel hooks. It would not surprise me one bit if he obtains a short notice replacement call.
