Former Minnesota LB off to great start as MMA Fighter
Some athletes have the ability to play multiple sports, and have success in them. That’s the case for former Minnesota LB Bailey Schoenfelder.
Schoenfelder played at Minnesota from 2017-2020, appearing in 21 games for the Golden Gophers. He now competes in the Bellator MMA Championship with the nickname ‘Berserk’, and is off to a 3-0 start for his career. Schoenfelder bested his opponent Mark ‘The Jackhammer’ Currier after winning by submission on Friday.

Both Heavyweights put it all on the line in this one, but it’s @SchoenyB who gets the W with a Rear-Naked Choke submission.

Based on the video, it looks like Schoenfelder is really going all in on his nickname. He managed to win the match in the 2nd of 3 rounds with around 2:30 left.
It’ll be interesting to see how long Schoenfelder can continue his winning streak.
