Arteaga Victorious at Real MMA



Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho’s Veta Arteaga improved her record to 4-1 last night, picking up a unanimous decision victory over Hannah Fitzpatrick at Real MMA in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Veta used her superior striking and grappling to control her aggressive opponent. Baited into a brawl early, Arteaga switched gears and began using her jab and footwork to take control of the larger Fitzpatrick, following up her jab with hard right hands and kicks. In round 2 in was more of the same early, until Fitzpatrick was able to clinch and secure a bodylock takedown, but Veta was able to reverse the position and pass to side control as the round expired. The final round was similar to the first as Arteaga was able to remain upright and pick apart Fitzpatrick from standing.

Great job Veta, we’re very proud of you!!!

Jorgensen To Face Gamburyan at UFC Fight Night


Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho’s Scott Jorgensen returns to bantamweight (135lb) to take on Manny Gamburyan at UFC Fight Night: Mir vs Duffee on July 15 from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, CA.

The move back up the scale following a brief stint at flyweight (125 lb) should be a great one for Scott as the cut to 135 won’t be nearly so draining, allowing him to perform to his true potential.

VanHoose Brothers’ Results From BOM/Muay Lok



The fighting VanHoose brothers, Hunter & Kojiro, experienced mixed results two weeks ago at the co-promoted Battle of Muay Thai/Muay Lok show in Shinjuku, Tokyo Japan.

The elder brother, Hunter, picked up a huge victory over a ranked and very experienced fighter, Tora Yusuke. The final verdict was a unanimous decision via  scores of 50-48, 48-47 and 49-48. The victory should set Hunter up for an even bigger fight against an opponent ranked in the top 5.

Younger brother Kojiro, was entered into a round robin with two very experienced and older opponents, Kahn and Kadaka. Kojiro would go on to drop both bouts by decision, but as always, displayed the heart of a champion and never stopped fighting until the final bell.

We are always so proud of both of these great young men. Well done!!!
