JORDAN BURROUGHS, 2011 FILA WORLD CHAMPION & 2X NCAA DI WRESTLING CHAMPION, TO ENDORSE CAGE FIGHTER

Oct 20, 2011
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Lutte Licensing Group, LLC, the exclusive licensed supplier of Cage Fighter® & CF® Athletic branded sports apparel, announced today an exclusive endorsement and licensing agreement with 2X NCAA Wrestling Champion and 2011 FILA World Champion (freestyle wrestling), Jordan Burroughs. Burroughs contract with Lutte is a multi-year agreement. Lutte will work with Burroughs to develop a line of signature product with a major focus on the sport of wrestling at all levels.

Burroughs captured the 2011 FILA World Championship earlier this year after completing an outstanding collegiate career as a 2X NCAA Champion and Hodge Trophy award winner at the University of Nebraska. Burroughs is one of the few Americans in the history of international competition to win a FILA World Championship immediately following the end of his collegiate career and in his first World Championship competition. He is also the first American male athlete to win the FILA World Championship since 2006. In March, Burroughs captured his second NCAA Championship and was named the Outstanding Wrestler of the tournament. In April, in his first US Open Championship competition in Cleveland, OH, Burroughs rolled through the veteran field to capture his first National Championship in freestyle competition. He is the top U.S. hopeful for a gold medal next year at the Games of the XXX Olympiad in London.

“ I am excited to become a part of the Cage Fighter® – CF® Athletic team,” says Burroughs. “The brand was started by a wrestler, is operated by wrestlers and is focused on growing our sport at all levels. The brand is already a leader in the wrestling and MMA communities and provides me with a multi-year partnership which is consistent with my long term goal to be a World Champion in the sport of mixed martial arts,” says Burroughs.
