Grandson of famous mobster set for pro MMA debut

John Gotti III (0-0) will make is professional MMA debut on Oct. 27 at CES 46, taking on Johnny Adams (0-1) at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I. The card airs live on AXS TV.

Gotti, the son of John Gotti II, fights on what would have been the 77th birthday of his grandfather. He wants to pay tribute to the fallen mobster’s memory.

“I chose my pro debut with CES because I know several of the fighters that have fought for them,” Gotti said in a prepared statement released by CES, which added interview requests are a no-go per John Gotti II. “They said they were good guys to work with and that they put on a great show. So it was a natural fit when I heard they were promoting a show on Oct. 27.

“The significance of the date is that it would have been my late grandfather’s 77th birthday, and I wanted to honor him on that day.”

Gotti III said his interest in MMA stems from his father’s release from prison, presumably after a 2008 indictment on racketeering and murder conspiracy failed to stick.

“When my father first came home from prison, (MMA) was a means for us to bond,” Gotti III said. “We would watch all the big fights together at home, as well as attending several cards in New Jersey.

“I think now, as I’ve chosen this as a profession, although my father is proud of me, I think he regrets fostering my interest. I don’t think he ever thought this would be the end result. What father wants to watch his son in this type of environment?”

The only reason this shitty organization signed him is because of his name. He is the first fight on the untelevised prelim card.
