Nathan holds a 7-3 MMA record with 1 NC, including capturing the Horizon FC lightweight title. Nathan is also ranked #9 at welterweight in Kansas & Missouri by tapology.com.
Nathan has a list of accomplishments in multiple martial arts. “I’ve had 2 years of high school wrestling back in my Junior and Senior year, I’m a 4th stripe white belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Chad Morrison in the BQuick Jiu-Jitsu system, and a 3rd stripe green belt in Chinese Kenpo Karate under Nathan J. Henderson. I’m also an Eagle Scout from Troop 5 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri”.
Nathan got into martial arts thru park fights. “As a kid I always fancied martial arts but my dad made me pick between that or Boy Scouts and I chose Boy Scouts instead of martial arts. A friend got me into park fights with MMA rules when I was 17 and I just fell in love with MMA after I found out I was good at it. I love the 1 on 1 competition and always challenging myself to get better! Just like a true Saiyan warrior does”.
Nathan was scheduled to return to action June 2nd for Shamrock FC, but unfortunately suffered an injury in a BJJ tournament.
