Los Angeles MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fans are in for a treat this month as live pro MMA action returns to the Los Angeles area. The Samurai MMA Pro event is going down in Culver City Friday October 21st. Samurai MMA Pro will be headlined by former TUF (The Ultimate Fighter) show contestant Jamie Yager.
Jamie Yager will be the main event and will be facing one of the Los Angeles area's best pro MMA fighters Mozzy Arfa. Arfa is 3-1 as a pro and has finished his last two fights in the first round! He defeated David Mancha at Respect in the Cage via rear naked choke submission and Selah Williams at Battle in the Bullring via TKO. Yager will be Arfa's biggest challenge yet, and it will be fun to see if he's up for the challenge.
Since Jamie Yager's loss in the UFC, he's come back with two straight wins. At TWC-10 Beat down(The Warriors Cage) he demolished Marcus Gaines in the first round finishing him off with a rear naked choke submission. Most recently at MMA Fight Pit Genesis, he finished off a tough opponent in Willie Parks with a guillotine choke a few seconds into the second round.
