Rick Hawn: Boston Herald's Fighter of the Year


From the Boston Herald:


No other fighter made his mark on the local MMA scene like Rick Hawn did in 2010.

The 34-year-old  got a late start in MMA (his first pro fight was in 2009), but he more than made up for it training at Sityodtong in Somerville and Renzo Gracie NH in Derry, N.H.. The 2004 judo Olympian
went a perfect 4-0 for the year.

Hawn beat eventual M-1 Selection tournament winner Tom Gallicchio in February, knocked out Northeastmma’s No.1 welterweight Dennis Olson in June and TKO’d UFC veteran
Shonie Carter at the end of July.

  Not only did Hawn climb to the top of the local 170-pound rankings, but he earned a contract with Bellator Fighting Champions and TKO’d LeVon Maynard at Bellator
33 in October to earn a spot in their 2011 tournament.
