You may have heard the name Cole Young over the years. It may have been during high school competitions or when he started his MMA and kickboxing journey, maybe it was from a friend who suggested his business Furz and Spurz to you. Regardless, the name Cole Young is about to be known nationwide, and his journey is one you won’t want to miss.
Cole Young is a remarkable young man who is driven by his love for his family and his passion for competition. He is known for his humility, respectfulness, and loyalty. Those who know him describe him as one of the most loving individuals they have ever met. Cole is a bit of a joker who lightens the mood of any room with his smile, humor and charisma. Cole’s “why” in life is his family, including his wife Alissa and their son Cal. Cal was diagnosed with a rare disease called CDG, which affects only a handful of people in the world. Despite the challenges that come with caring for a child with a rare disease, Cole remains committed to his family and works tirelessly to raise awareness about CDG. Cole Young’s life is one of sacrifice, and to bring honor to his son.
In addition to his dedication to his family, Cole is passionate about hunting, MMA, kickboxing, his gym family, and his business. Cole is a respected member of the gym, Vicious Elite, and the community. He has competed in numerous combat competitions, with his most prestigious achievement being the upcoming Power Slap fight on May 24th on Rumble, where he will be competing to raise awareness about CDG. Cole is an up-and-coming welterweight with his powerful “Full Send” motto.
You may have seen his incredible one hit knockout shared via Dana Whites Facebook page or on numerous other social media accounts a few weeks ago. Despite his many accomplishments, Cole remains grounded and focused on what truly matters in life. He is an inspiration to those around him, and his unwavering commitment to his family and his community serves as a reminder of the power of love and dedication.
Join us in wishing Cole “Full Send” Young luck as he continues his journey to the top in the next Power Slap event!
