DiGiulioIn the world of mma there isn't just one particular fighter that we see training and getting into the cage but we also see that this sport has brothers that share the same passion of blood, sweat, tears and the drive to take it as far as they can go in their careers. You hear about the Miller's, Pettis's, Guidas, to name a few but in the Midwest and Chicagoland mma scene there's Gilbert Grappling's Gino and Larry Digiulio. Larry, the older brother of the two is a professional fighter that holds a record of 16-7-1 and is the current Iowa Challenge bantamweight champion. Larry also made his debut in Finland recently cutting to 125 pounds for the first and winning a unanimous decision. Larry has not announced anything new as of yet but looks to be back in the cage real soon. Gino, the younger brother of Larry is also a professional with a 5-5 record coming off a submission win March 1st of this year at Midwest Fight Series. Gino will be returning to Midwest Fight Series on April 4th in Indianapolis, Indiana facing Andrew Holbrook in a lightweight bout. had a chance to sit down with the two brothers from Chicago Heights for a short interview to get more of an in depth story behind these two warriors.

Moremma: How did you two get involved in the sport of mma?
LD: I started wrestling at the age 16 sophomore year in high school when I went to a camp held by the Gilberts and just been involved with it ever since.

GD: I started coming in a year after Larry and did the wrestling camps as well then had my first fight at the age of 18.

Moremma: What is it that you both do to push each other to get better in the cage?

LD: I was the more the athletic of the two. When Gino was younger, I was the big brother kind of bully to just help get him better with him being younger.

GD: It's definitely the older brother/younger brother kind of thing. We go pretty hard in training and we are not afraid to hurt each other.

Moremma: What are your goals you both want to achieve in your fighting careers?

LD: I want to just take it as far as I can go, and of course get to the UFC. Just to keep fighting professional as long as I can.

GD: I also want to take it as far as I can go as well. I teach English at Lake Central High school in St John, Indiana so I'm trying to balance both careers.

What has been your best moments so far in your careers?

LD:  Winning my first belt as a professional in Iowa and my debut at 125 winning over in Finland.

GD: My first fight in general was big for me because I waited five years for it. My first professional fight was also a big moment for me too but I still have a lot more to achieve though.

Moremma: Is there anybody out there you both want to thank that’s been a big part of your careers as fighters?

LD: Joey and Danny Gilbert definitely because they have been there for me from the day we started.

GD: Joe and Danny Gilbert and also Larry. My wrestling coach in Grade school Joe Benoit. Just Gilbert Grappling in general because that’s where it all began.
