Ian "The Hurricane" Heinisch is one of the top middleweights in the world and has been fighting in the UFC since 2018. His moves are proven to work against some of the toughest competition out there, and not only is he an amazing fighter but he is also a great instructor!
In this part of the series, he speaks about the struggles in his life, how he battled addiction, went to jail, and managed to rise to the top after all of his struggles.
Ian has an incredible story of redemption. After winning the Colorado High-School State Championship for wrestling, he dropped out of school while attending North Idaho College and started selling drugs. He then went to jail in the Canary Islands and then Rikers Island. After that, he realized he needed to change. He became a professional MMA fighter in 2015 and has risen to the top. That is just the tip of the iceberg of his story and you really need to hear everything that he has been through. He is a truly inspirational figure and we're super excited to have him on JJOTG!
