Onnit Athletes were busy this Memorial Day weekend breaking records, winning world titles and making history.
Saturday started off with a bang in Nassau as Onnit Pro, Jermaine Brown, along with teammates Yohan Blake, Nickel Ashmeade and Warren Weir crushed the 4×200 world record at the IAAF World Relays. Team Jaimaca’s time of 1:18:64 clipped 0.05 off the 20 year old record set by the Carl Lewis anchored US team set in 1994.
Bryn Davis, Brown’s coach, commented “We are lucky to have Onnit in our corner. So much more to come from us. I know this Saturday was crazy. I watched TJ’s fight. Huge weekend for Onnit!”
Next up were two outstanding showcases from Team Alpha Male and Onnit Pros, Chris Holdsworth and TJ Dillashaw at UFC 173 in Las Vegas. Holdsworth started the night out dominating Chico Camus (13-5) to win by unanimous decision and pick up his second straight UFC win.
“I felt great out there… He’s (Camus) a veteran with four wins in the UFC, so I think he was a great opponent for me to show what I can do. In a weird way I’m happy it went to a decision because I wanted to prove to myself and to the fans that I can go three hard rounds.” Holdsworth said.
The night ended with a world class performance from TJ Dillashaw fighting for the bantamweight title against “Wrecking Ball,” Rene Barao. Dillashaw knocked out Barao in the final round, breaking his 33 fight unbeaten streak dating back to 2005 and winning the first world title for Team Alpha Male.
“I’ve dreamed it for so long, it’s unbelievable,” Dillashaw said. “All you have to do is believe you’re the best in the world and you’ll get here.” Dillashaw, 27, has now won six of his last seven fights.
