Skateboarder Jason Ellis wins MMA debut

Australian skateboarder Jason Ellis won his mixed martial arts debut this past Friday at a charity fight card "Down for Life - Fight for a Cause" in Anaheim, California.

Ellis, who was cornered by training partners Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Muhammad "King Mo" Lawal of Team Quest in Temecula, submitted Tony Gianopulos with a guillotine choke in the second round.

Two UFC veterans fought and won on the card. Danny Abbadi defeated Sterling Ford via TKO in the first and Kit Cope defeated Zack Skinner via TKO in the second.

The 37-year-old currently hosts "The Jason Ellis Show" on Sirius Satellite Radio.

The card was presented by 2-time X Games gold medalist Ryan Sheckler through his Sheckler Foundation with the help of Fight Night Events, LLC.
