Kids BJJ and Kickboxing coach Maria Rios fight again!
Encino, The Valley
Kids BJJ and Kickboxing Maria Rios, who won her last MMA fight via a rear naked choke against a very experienced Kickboxer. Maria has worked a lot of her boxing and kickboxing, to sharpen her all around game. Maria is a blue belt BJJ world champion and a very talented grappler, as well as a very competent striker. Maria has worked and dieted hard, to make her debut at 115 lbs. When you don't see her on the mat or behind the front desk, you can find her in the CrossFit room, working on her strength and conditioning.
In addition to Maria Rios, 3 of our sister school Systems Training Center's MMA fighter are also on the card! First up is Eric Steans who has also worked hard for his fight, coming off a loss in his last fight for King of the Cage. Eric has spent a lot of extra time in the gym, preparing for this bout!
Melanie LaCroix, who's last fight was a barnburner and fight of the night, is always exciting to watch! Very all rounded with great wrestling and athletic ability, she's a a danger to anyone in the bantamweight division!
Terrion "Flash" Ware, is once again the main event of the evening. Terrion, who won the BAMMA title last time around, has since the fought for the Tachi Palace title and is the last man to face Jose Soto, before Soto going to the UFC and facing T.J. Dillashaw for the UFC Bantamweight title! Terrion, who has excellent striking, has worked a lot on his wrestling and a lot of CrossFit, which has seen him put on some muscle and serious strength, which he feels will be the difference in this fight!
