Spotlight on Brandon Lee Eady, Matchmaker
After graduating from Tampa Jesuit High School and attending the University of Florida, Brandon settled into a career in the mortgage industry in 2001. When the bubble burst in 2005, he decided to chase his dream in combat sports. Amassing a total of 49 amateur fights between boxing, San Shou, Muay Thai & MMA, Brandon was set to turn pro in late 2011. Tragically, on July 6, 2011, Brandon was in a car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down, a C3-C4 incomplete quadriplegic. Living the mantra, Stay Vigilant, Brandon far surpassed his prognosis and fought his way back. Unwilling to “walk away” from the sport he adored, he subsequently started his own fighter management company (Stay Vigilant Management), opened a martial arts studio (Team Ronin) & assumed the Matchmaker role with Vigilant Promotions LLC.
