agapians got talent – Yohan, professional MMA fighter

He started judo at the age of 3. Yohan, an R&D Engineer at Le Creusot (71) has always been passionate for combat sports and now combines his professional life with his professional MMA fighting career.

MMA, a discipline banned in France, is a mixture of boxing, wrestling and Brazilian jiu jitsu. Turned professional one year ago, he has fought in particular in England against some local stars.
Since his arrival at Le Creusot, he has taken up boxing. After training for only three months, he is already fighting for the title of Champion of Burgundy in the “elite amateur” category, alongside some very experienced competitors. Impressive progress, made possible thanks to intensive and regular training: 8 to 9 times per week. And what does the customer think? “My colleagues have grown accustomed to seeing me come in on a Monday morning with a black eye. My Manager is very understanding, allowing me to adapt my working hours so that I can continue training.”
