Team Paul Mitchell expands its men’s fighting team by looking overseas.
Plagued with injuries and a dearth of available fighters in North America, Team Paul Mitchell found itself searching across the sea to enhance its bench. Veres was in the sights of the Paul Mitchell coaches and fighters for some time after incredible performances at top events like Irish Open in Europe and the US Open in the United States.

Although in the past, Paul Mitchell has been mainly made up of North Americans, this new move is a reflection of the global branding movement being encouraged by the team sponsors, Paul Mitchell Products and Century Martial Arts Supply.
The new additions of Imre and Veres along with Kameren Dawson’s return from the injured list, will allow Team Paul Mitchell the ability to field two very strong men’s teams if desired.

Team Paul Mitchell doesn’t see the potential language barrier as an issue with the new additions. “They speak the universal language of winning,” declared Gilbert.
The full Team Paul Mitchell fighting team is expected to debut at the upcoming Battle of Atlanta the weekend of June 17-18, 2016. The full team will also be fighting at the 2016 US Open ISKA World Martial Arts Championships the weekend of July 8-9, 2016. In addition, you can meet the new Team Paul Mitchell members at the Team Paul Mitchell Experience Camp on July 7, 2016 at the US Open.
