Encino, The Valley
Systems Training Center fighter, CrossFit coach and Kickboxing coach, Christos Giagos, is fighting for the UFC today in Brazil. Christos, a Hawthorne, South Bay local, is stepping into the octagon to face the hometown favorite Jorge "Blade" de Oliveira. However, Christos is not new to fighting on his opponent's home turf. In his last fight, also for the UFC, Christos fought yet another Brazilian in Brazil. Christos also quieted the crowd when he won the RFA title earlier in 2014.
Yesterday, Christos weighed in at a 155 pounds without any problems.
"I'm feeling good. I'm here to put Hawthorne and South Bay on the map in the MMA world! This is going to be a very exciting fight!" Christos said yesterday.
