The first time I had the pleasure of meeting David, ‘Bulletproof’ Mitchell, I was at a demo, sampling our ghee at Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op. David knew what ghee was and explained how much he uses it in his diet and bought some! He invited me to his fight, that was happening that night.
I decided to not go since I had never been exposed to MMA or UFC cage fighting, and wasn’t sure if I should expect gore and guts, potentially blood spattered, cage-side. Making Herbal formulas infused in the ghee for David, and seeing him out shopping at the weekly Midtown Farmer’s Market in Sacramento, we became fast-friends and allies.
After seeing David as the Main Event in the Spring of 2014, and watching him win his fight, I was hooked!! The excitement, thrill and inspiration to train harder and be better quickened my blood and amped me by seeing, first hand, the level of devotion and skill that goes into these ultimate athletes. Each challenge requires patience and discipline!
David fights again on January 23. Mama Sattva’s ghee keeps him going up to his fight day! Follow him on FB and Instagram. Click here for tickets! Come help us cheer him on!
David fell in love with the ghee and shares his knowledge of how to train by eating ultimately a warriors diet, of quality foods with plenty of fats!! We sponsor David with ghee, to keep him well oiled for his fighting stamina and ultimate champion body, mind, and spirit!! Below is a little bit more on David: written in his own words:
Hi, my name is David Mitchell. I grew up in Laytonville CA pop. 1200 Northern Mendocino County. After some college in Redding, Ukiah, and Chico and work at Sugar Bowl (ticket check/lift op), construction and heavy equipment and odd jobs.
An obsession with health and fitness and Martial sciences led me to discover MMA at age 23. I fought for Gladiator Challenge on July 8th, 2006 after one years training under legendary BJJ artist Dave Terrell. It was outside uncovered in 108F heat at Koncoti Vista Casino at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. I won by triangle Choke at 3:35 in the first round starting a 11 fights win streak capturing CageCombat and Tachi Palace titles at 185 and 170 lbs titles. I had nine subs including an arm at at :28 seconds, a :54 second toe hold on Bobby Green (UFC), mounted guillotine 1:06 for Tachi gold vs Tim Mckenzie and wins over The at ‘Tachi Kid’Poppies Martinez and War Machine.
After my release in 2013 I moved to Sacramento and began training with Team Apha Male under Coach Joey Rodegez (boxing) and Fabio Prada (BJJ) and Donand Roberson on Muay Thai and all under Chief Urijah Faber! I ran off seven straight wins beginning with Fernando Gonzalez by TKO in Feb 2014. I captured the West Coast Fighting middleweight belt with another first round finish over Mat Major and rounded out 2014 with notable wins over GKO current middleweight champ Justin Baesmen and legend Jamie Jara both rd 1 RNC.
I’ve also done charity work with the Grace Project benefiting special needs families. I’ve also passed out winter clothes with team Lana Egg Whites and tether sponsored athletes. I’ve also taught anti-bully seminars at elementary schools across Northern California promoting health and showcasing martial arts for fitness and self defense only!
I’ve also been a lighting rod for sponsors with a loyal following on Instagram and Facebook.
I’m also a father of a young son, an active personal and class martial arts instructor, shameless promoter, and family man. I was honored with the 2014 WFC fighter of the year and the prestigious CobraSource Athlete of 2015 that Max Griffin won last year.
I’ve also won many Bjj tournaments and I am a Dave Terrell Purple belt!
