Running with Scissors Enters MMA

When Running With Scissors capo Vince Desi was questioned by Federal Security officer John Lehman at Buffalo International Airport, he couldn’t help but notice that the muscular young man (Lehmann is a natural middleweight and fights at 185 lbs.) was sporting one hell of a shiner. When asked about it, John explained that he was in training for his first MMA fight at the then-upcoming Raging Wolf V card, "Mayhem in the Mist" at the nearby Seneca Niagara Hotel-Casino – and the black eye was his ID Card.

Recalling the days when RWS sponsored fighters such as Drew "The Master" Fickett, who famously choked out Josh Koscheck at UFC’s Ultimate Fight Night 2, Vince took a shot. RWS enthusiastically became Lehman’s sponsor. John proudly donned his POSTAL t-shirt in the ring at his October 10th debut following a 52-second victory over Joseph Morrison via a kneebar to an armbar transition that had Morrison tapping the mat like Ricky Ricardo on speed.

"I like this kid," Desi declared. "He represents what’s best in American youth today, and he’s a natural for RWS."

John doesn’t have a formal fighter’s nickname, but some of his friends dubbed him "U-Haul" after a bar fight during which he moved several of his opponent’s facial features to new locations. A former medic in the Joint Special Forces and Alaska State Trooper, Lehmann has trained in Sambo (submission fighting) and Savate (a form of kickboxing) and is already looking forward to his next fight at Raging Wolf VI, scheduled for the Seneca Allegany Hotel-Casino in Salamanca, NY early next year.
