Yet another decorated wrestler is headed to MMA, as today American Top Team has announced that NCAA Division 1 wrestling champion Bubba Jenkins as signed with the renowned gym.

The 23 year-old Jenkins, who competed for Penn State University before transferring to Arizona State, is coming off a 2010-2011 championship season wrestling at 157 pounds.

The official ATT announcement added:

Bubba is now fully committed with his MMA career and will move down to American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida, where he will join a host of other MMA stars to work with such as: Mike Brown, Cole Miller, Jorge Masvidal, Thiago "Pitbull" Alves, Hector Lombard, and Gleison Tibau among others.

This is the first wave in American Top Team's bid to bring high level wrestlers into the mix. We are very pleased Bubba has decided to call ATT and South Florida home.

We think his overall mat experience, mental toughness, and athleticism will be key assets going forward in his MMA career.

Welcome to the ATT family Bubba!
