Congrats to CSW ProFighters Jacob “Lil Badger” Rosales and Curtis “Curtious” Millender on their wins at Bellator 170 this past weekend. Both won via TKO (Punches). Congrats guys!!!
It was a busy end to August for our competitors at CSW. Starting off with CSW Pro Fighter Javier Garcia making his pro debut last Thursday 8/25/16 at the OC Fight Club. Javi won via 3rd round TKO.
Jacob Rosales followed the next with his debut on Bellator MMA. In his 6th fight as a Pro Fighter, Jake “Lil Badger” Rosales wins his debut with a unanimous decision and is now 4-2.
On Saturday, our CSW kids, in their second competition together, had an impressive showing. Alyna Anchondo placed first in her division dominating her first opponent with point and finishing the Final with a submission.
On August 26th, Jacob “Lil Badger” Rosales will be making his debut for Bellator MMA. A homegrown fighter out of CSW, under the tutelage of Sensei Erik Paulson and Coach Ben Jones incurred an amateur record of 7-0 and his current pro record of 3-2. Jacob having his first fight at the age of 12, looks to catapult himself into the limelight for bigger matches, and ultimately fight in the UFC. A big contributor as part of the fight team and now current Coach of Thursday night CSW fundamentals, we are all looking forward to his success.

“Before there was the Ultimate Fighting Championship, before anyone even knew the term mixed martial arts in the United States, Japan was a haven for adrift fighters looking to display their craft. Otherwise, anonymity was their companion. MMA was not even considered a sport in the U.S. in the early 1990s, treated more with a dubious cringe as a kind of sports speakeasy where combat nomads could convene before fringe crowds.”
