There’s nothing like a Nazi who thinks he’s hard. They always end up getting reminded – more often than not the hard way – just how hard they are not. Still, it’s nice to have them around so antifa can get their slap on every now and again. But when those same boneheads find a way to make money from pretending they are hard, that takes things to another level. For some time now, there has been some issues with this crowd getting into the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) scene.
Fighters with neo-Nazi connections like Melvin Costa Maryland “Skinheads” member Doug Sonier or MMA neo-Nazi clothing lines like Hoelzer Reich have prompted some cause for concern, and from time to time when they show their faces they have been getting kicked to the curb. To that end, what do you think is going to happen to a neo-Nazi Mixed Martial Arts organization operating in the Baltimore Area? Chances are if you know anything about the bonehead scene out there you know who is heading up this thing: Jay Tankersley of Maryland “Skinheads” and Doug Sonier’s coach. The guy loves it when we write about him, but we’re not too sure he is going to be all that happy about this. And we even posted this on Christmas, just to make his holiday even more festive! We know that Tankersley is pretty much used to getting kicked out of gyms he tries to hang his hat in, so he shouldn’t be surprised if this latest one feels compelled to do so. Let’s face it, Nazis made it clear that if they had their way the freedoms that we all enjoy would be rendered null and void. It’s pretty laughable when they then turn around and cry about their freedom being violated, when we all exercise ours to keep them away from us, but this is why we call them boneheads.

A Mixed Martial Arts training operation by a well-known neo-Nazi has started in Maryland and reportedly operates out of a club in Baltimore.
Absolute Combat Sports, LLC filed incorporation papers in May, which also states its purpose is “to provide training and excersise for individuals interested in combat and athletic sports. The papers were filed by Jason Eastwood Tankersley who also uses his home address of 621 Joppa Farm Rd., Joppa, MS 21085 as the business address. Tankersley is the head of the Maryland “Skinheads” and both were prominently featured in the 2007 National Geographic documentary American Skinheads. The documentary, shows Tankersley and other neo-Nazis including MMA fighter Doug Sonier, a Maryland “Skinheads” member that Tankersley coaches, training in a gym as other member and members of Keystone State “Skinheads” look on.
Tankersley, who has spent time in jail for assault, has been prominent in the Nazi scene since 2002. He has worked with a white power music distro outlet called Label 56, and has been seen at numerous neo-Nazi rallies and meetings, including a Council of Conservative Citizens meeting at the home of Barnes Review contributor Peter Papaheraklis Kennsington, MD that was met with protest, and featured Canadian neo-Nazi Paul Fromm as a speaker. He also participated in the Sept. 1, 2007 anti-immigration rally in Harrisburg, PA organized by the organization Voice of the People. That group is headed up by Daniel Smeriglio, who has come under fire for his associations with neo-Nazis.
According to sources, Absolute Combat Sports has been working out of the Exile Fitness Center in Rosedale, which is in Baltimore County, MD. Attempts to reach Tankersley there have been unsuccesful, although the person answering the phone there said he would be able to forward contact information to him. The exact relationship Exile Fitness Center has with Absolute Combat Sports in unclear, including if the owners of the center share the same beliefs as Tankersley.
