California Rabbi Wins First MMA Fight

California-based Rabbi Yossi Eilfort recently started winding boxing wrap on his arms in addition to tefillin, winning his first amateur MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) match by technical knock-out in the second round.

Eilfort has learned Krav Maga for the past 12 years, but just 6 months ago began training in MMA under Thierry Sokoudjou at Team Quest Gym in Encinitas.
