MMA fighter Scott “The Animal” Heckman teams up with KT Tape

KT Tape welcomes Pro MMA fighter Scott “The Animal” Heckman to the team of KT Tape sponsored athletes. Scott “The Animal” Heckman is an extremely talented up and coming, motivated MMA fighter pursuing his dream to make it into the UFC.  He was recently called back for a second interview, photo shoot, physical and medical evaluation on January 9-13 by the UFC for a nationally syndicated TV show called The Ultimate Fighter 15 or “TUF 15”.  TUF 15 is a subsidiary of the UFC. Scott is a Bangor, PA native that began his career in the sport of wrestling at a very young age.  He amassed a career record of 142-19 at Bangor high school with two bronze medals and a fifth place showing at the PIAA state tournament.  He capped his high school career by placing 8th in the country at the highly touted senior national tournament. Our competitor then embarked on a successful collegiate career by becoming an NCAA Division I qualifier, a 2x PSAC champion in 2006-07, and two 4th place finishes in 2008-09.  During his collegiate career he defeated former middle weight UFC champion Frankie Edgar. Upon graduating from ESU he focused his efforts into the Mixed Martial Arts arena.  This turned out to be an excellent fit.  His blended wrestling background and street fighter approach has proven to be a very difficult situation for any opponent to handle.  Heckman’s boasts an amateur and pro record of 12-3 and has appeared on Spike television, Spiketv.com, and MTV2 via The Bellator Fighting Championships. Heckman is a determined competitor always seeking a way to unlock more greatness, and to continue building a successful career.  This takes a lot of time, sacrifice, and dedication.  Scott currently trains three times per day at different facilities to unlock all of his potential and make him the best athlete he can be for his sponsors. Scott’s done this thus far, hence his credentials.  He is a committed individual. His next fight will be The Main Event at The Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pa. on June 16, 2012. Everyone wants to be associated with a winner and that is why Scott has partnered with KT Tape, an industry leader helping athletes everywhere stay active and do the things they love to do.  A little bit of success and flair goes a long way, but to finish this journey we know we need a solid team, and KT Tape is proud to be a part of that team.  We are not leaving this up to chance; instead we are doing everything in our power to get one step closer to a UFC championship.
