SBG athlete, Veta Arteaga (3-1 MMA, 2-1 Bellator), makes her return to the Bellator cage, August 25, as a part of Bellator 182 at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York. Arteaga, coming off of a TKO victory over Brooke Mayo at Bellator 172, will look to continue her winning ways in a flyweight bout opposite Brazilian, Bruna Ellen (3-1 MMA, 1-1 Bellator). With both fighters coming off wins, this is a great opportunity to gain traction in the developing Bellator Women’s Flyweight Division! Veta’s fight will be appearing on Spike TV as part of the main televised card, headlined by a welterweight matchup featuring Chidi Njokuani (17-4 MMA, 4-0 Bellator) against Andrey Koreshkov (19-2 MMA, 11-2 Bellator.) We look forward to watching Veta continue her winning ways and will keep you updated with plans for viewing her fight on August 25!!!
SBG Idaho up and comer, Noah Shultz, is set to make his second trip inside the cage in Red Lodge, Montana this Saturday, July 15, at Fusion Fight League’s 2nd Annual Backflips and Beatdowns!
Since turning 18, Shultz has put his foot on the gas when it comes to his competitive prizefighting career. Last May he made an impressive MMA debut at Front Street Fights 12, notching a quick first round submission victory. This was followed by a successful amateur boxing debut just two weeks later, where he scored a second round knockout. He follows that up with his sternest test to date, taking on 2-2 Montana native, Raymond Morkeberg in an amateur flyweight (125 lb) contest.
We look forward to watching this young man showcase his skills and continue to develop as a martial artist!!!
SBG Idaho MMA athletes had an outstanding night, Friday, June 30 in Hailey, Idaho for UCF 20- winning both fights by submission!First, the debuting David Akers showcased his superior grappling against a tough, more experienced opponent. His opponent rushed him with punches early in the fight, causing David to clinch and secure a takedown at the base of the cage. From there he passed to side control, then mount, before his opponent hit a hard bridge and reversed to top position. David immediately locked up a triangle choke that gave way to a belly down armbar as time expired. In round 2, Akers quickly gained a takedown and established mount. From there he went to work with strikes until his opponent gave up his back and left his neck open for the fight-ending rear naked choke finish!In the evening’s main event title fight, Kyle Frost quickly ducked under his opponent’s opening right hand for a takedown that was defended. Frost persisted, however, securing a body lock takedown and mount. As his opponent hit a hard bridge to escape, he left his arm exposed, and Frost quickly snatched it up for the armbar finish only 27 seconds into the fight! The win bring’s Kyle’s record to 3-0 with a total of 2:17 of time spent in the cage!This event was met with many last minute changes that forced several of our athletes off of the card and some with last minute opponent changes. The readiness and professionalism shown by even our amateur athletes not only show in their results, but the demand to have them featured in MMA event throughout the region.
