Tanner Favela of Mansfield will make his MMA debut on September 22 in Miami, Oklahoma. With a current record of 1-1 in grappling events, Favela won gold in Conway at the American Grappling Federation tournament over Summer giving him the confidence to step up his game and enter the big ring.
“My ultimate goal is to inspire all of the underdogs in the world. I was never the guy whose name you heard called out from the press box during football games. I would love to see as many people from my hometown as possible there rooting me on. I’m fighting a hometown guy and could use the cheers. Regardless I won’t let anybody down.” stated Favela.
Favela will enter the cage and face off against Tulsa native, Jesse Hood. With determination, hard work, and a focused mindset, Favela looks to be an example of what can be done when you put your mind to something and already planning on bringing the win back to his beloved hometown.
“I am representing my hometown of Mansfield, and would absolutely love to see the support of my friends and family in the crowd as I enter the cage against Hood” added Favela.
