    Tywan Claxton is already on his way to being successful in a completely different field than mixed martial arts.

    Claxton, a top Bellator featherweight prospect, is also a coder; he makes web apps. He said ahead of his Bellator 221 fight against James Bennett he recently partnered with the company GoMeta and its web app development platform, Koji.

    Great mentality by Tywan, one of the greatest Hackers of the 90’s known was Mudge who went on to work for the NSA then Google for a short time. mudge felt the need to toughen up and better himself physically so he went and learned BJJ and now is a great practitioner of BjJ to add to his already amazing computer skills.

    Now we see Tywan basically doing the same thing but vice versa of mudge....

    Mudge had the brain and worked on the muscle Tywan had the muscle and worked on the brain.

    No doubt his work in coding helps sharpen his mind / improve his in ring strategy - problem solving that will certainly help carry over into the fight world.

    Glad to see Mr.Claxton challenging himself both physically and mentally helping himself become very well rounded in life.
