Eliot Marshall — From UFC fighter to entrepreneur.

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

To be a teacher, we must be students first.
No one becomes a teacher overnight. It takes many hours of study and practice to master a skill.
To inspire you today, we want to share with you the story of Eliot Marshall, the student who became a teacher.
In this episode, Eliot dropped some jams. We talked about jiu-jitsu, intentionality, toxic masculinity, core values, fatherhood, and how to get better in life and business.
This episode will be a knockout for our minds, so don't miss it!
Eliot Marshall is a prolific competitor as a professional mixed martial artist (MMA) and a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Amal Easton. Coming through the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu belt system, Eliot became the first American to earn IBJJF Pan American titles as a blue, purple, and brown belt.
While climbing the ranks of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Eliot entered the world of mixed martial arts in 2006, eventually competing in TUF and then signing with the UFC, the most prestigious MMA promotion in the world. In 2011, after a few ups and downs with his MMA career, Marshall decided to hang up his gloves and open training centers across the mile-high city of Denver, Colorado, formally named Easton Training Center along with his coach Amal Easton.
It wasn’t long before Marshall went on to further success as an entrepreneur, Podcast host, and world-class speaker, trainer, and author. He teaches industry leaders, teams, and individuals how to outsmart, outlast, and outperform their competition and achieve record-breaking success.
