MMAInsider was on hand for the 1st Annual MMA Agents Golf Tournament in Fontana, Calif., on Tuesday, as over 20 MMA stars putted in support of MMAWeekly.com founder Ryan Bennett’s family.
In attendance was Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture, Anthony Johnson, King Mo, Benji Radach, Sam Stout, Tyson Griffin, Tiki Ghosen, Dominic Cruz, Shannon Gugerty, Dean Lister, War Machine, Phil Baroni, Kimo, Shawn Thompkins, Josh Thomson, Bobby Southworth, Paul Buentello, Jason Lambert, Josh Burkman, Eddie Sanchez, Brian Warren, and Jake O’Brien.
For most, it was their first time on the greens. Was it pretty? No. Was it fun? Yes.
At the end of the day, Tyson Griffin’s foursome won the tournament, Tiki Ghosen’s team came in second place, and Tito Ortiz’s crew came in third.
Tyson Griffin also won the long drive competition. In his first day of golf, he out-drove everyone with a 335 yard drive. After fighting, he may just have a second career in the PGA.
Bellator FC matchmaker Matt Stansell was the lone casualty of the tournament. He walked in front of a teammate’s swing and was struck under the eye by a golfball. He was in good spirits by Tuesday night.
A tally of the money raised for the Bennett family is currently underway.
