Mountain Force MMA continues to push forward, providing quality mixed martial arts for competitors and fans alike, in the Rock Mountain region. MTF brings its 4th installment to Pocatello, Idaho this Saturday, August 4th at the Mountain View Events Center. That evening six SBG Idaho athletes will look to make their mark in the MTF cage!
Making their amateur MMA debuts will be Moises Valadez (125 lb) and Briley Streeter (135 lb), who will be taking on Aaron Jenning and Jordan Hughes, respectively. Both Moises and Briley have been putting many hours in the gym building their skill set, while also helping their teammates prepare. We are very excited that they now get a chance to shine!
Also on the bill that night will be youngsters, David Akers (2-1, MMA, 0-0 MTF), Noah Shultz (2-2, MMA, 0-0 MTF), and Almir Talic (1-0 MMA, 0-0 MTF), as well as veteran professional Billy Carothers (5-9 MMA, 0-0 MTF). Akers looks to get back in the win column after suffering a close decision loss at Rumble at the Roseland back in January. David will be taking on Daniel De Leora in an amateur flyweight (125 lb) contest. Shultz will reenter the cage after a dominant decision win at Front Street Fights this past January. He looks to continue his momentum when he meets Daniel Martinez in another amateur flyweight bout. After a quick submission win at FSF in January, Talic’s coaches are excited to watch him showcase even more of his impressive skillset. He will be taking on Dusty Jones at in an amateur lightweight (155 lb) fight. Finally, Billy Carothers will be stepping in on short notice to take on Idaho MMA veteran, Kerry Lattimer in a professional welterweight (170 lb) showdown! Billy is riding a two fight win streak after impressive submission victories at Fusion Fight League in December and FSF in February. He looks to continue that streak against the ultra-tough Lattimer!!!
