#LLSTORY - Jason Saggo

We've been honoured to feature Islanders and Honorary Islanders from all walks of life with our Local Legends Stories. This week is no different, as we are extremely grateful to share the story of UFC fighter and the Island's own Jason Saggo! Thanks again Jason, we really appreciate this!

"My girlfriend Rachel and I traveled to Prince Edward Island for a vacation in the summer of 2012. We fell in love here and the next summer we bought out first home in Grand Tracadie and moved here permanently.

I immediately started training under the tutelage of Professor Paul Abel (PEI’s first black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). He founded Wulfrun MMA which is now the island's #1 spot to learn Mixed Martial Arts. I achieved my dream of competing in the UFC in 2014 and never looked back.

We love living on the island because the people here are warm and welcoming. We’re happy to call PEI our home!"
