Rabbi Yossi Eilfort, Mixed Martial Arts Star

Rabbi Yossi Eilfort recently threw his first punch to the face — and knocked out his opponent.

The 22-year-old California based rabbi was competing in an amateur Mixed Martial Arts bout and won with a TKO in the second round, according to The Algemeiner.

Eilfort started training just six months ago under former UFC fighter Thierry Sokoudjou, with the goal of promoting self-defense and fitness in the Orthodox Jewish community.
