Elijah "E" Gbollie Jr.

E is the first generation American in his family and was born in Queens, NY. At a young age his parents moved him south to Kissimmee, FL where he grew up very active in sports.  As a freshman in high school, E played football on both on both sides of the ball and started wrestling, weight lifting , and running track. Excelling in his athletics, E stuck with it all four years and was selected for all county in football. He went 31-4 his senior year on the wrestling team and placed third in the county for weight lifting. E used his ability for working with his hands and went to trade school for HVAC-R.  After establishing himself in the HVAC business, and starting a family he started to wonder if he could succeed in cage fighting. He was a fan of the UFC, and noticed how well wrestlers were doing, so figured, why not. He started training at a local MMA gym and his competitive nature fit right in. Entering the sport at 280 lbs, within six months he had his first amateur heavyweight fight at 260. Starting off on the right foot, E won a three round decision and received fight of the night honors. He has since made the move to 205 and finished his amateur career at 6-1 . E has hit the professional circuit on the right track with 2 back to back wins. E’s work ethic, discipline and dedication serve him well both in and out of the cage. Big things are to come for Big E.
