Fighters from the Tullamore branch of SBG, the fighting gym associated with UFC champion Conor McGregor, have enjoyed multiple victories at the most recent Grapple Kings Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu event. 

The event saw Ireland take on Poland in a series of 16 contests with Ireland emerging victorious with 11 wins to 5.

Tullamore SBG was responsible for four of those victories with Kieran Davern rounding off the night with a stunning victory via rear naked choke. 

Also from SBG Tullamore, John McCormack got a win for Ireland via a foot lock submission, Chris Loonam won by guillotine, and Sharon Davern won via judges' decision. 

The night was a resounding success with SBG Tullamore describing it as a "top class display of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu," suggesting the scene itself was "indeed in a good strong place in Ireland."
