Meet our Coaches
Nick Patterson

Hi my name is Nick 'Banjo' Patterson. I live and breathe for this sport of ours called Mixed Martial Arts. I have experience in all sorts of Martial Arts since I was a little boy right through to having my first professional MMA bout in 2007. Today I am a qualified Coach and Licensed Trainer under the Victorian Combat Sports Board. My current MMA fight record is 14-1-4. I also have Fight experience in K1, Kickboxing, BJJ and Muay Thai. When I am not training I am training my students. I love sharing in the team spirit at The Underground and driven when I see my own students achieve and overcome their own trials.

Leirosa Patterson

Hi my name is Leirosa. I have been at The Underground since 2009. My martial Arts experience started when I was 6 years old, participating in Tae-Kwon-Do. Over the years I found an interest in boxing that ultimately lead to my love of Mixed Martial Arts. I enjoy all aspects of Mixed Martial Arts especially boxing and BJJ. I enjoy the journey of learning and overcoming the harder aspects of training and making them your strength.

Come and train today.
