MTF 1 Card Undergoes Late Changes

Mountain Force MMA is set for its inaugural show on Saturday, March 17th and SBG Idaho will be well-represented. Joining Women’s strawweight Stephanie Hernandez on the amateur card will be Kyle Aslami (1-0), who takes on David Martinez in an amateur fyweight bout.
