Belize defeats Mexico during MMA Showdown
Friday, March 4th, 2016
Belize took on Mexico on Saturday, February 27th during a seven round Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Competition. Held at the Belize Biltmore Plaza and hosted by Body 2000, the showdown featured MMA fighters from across the country of Belize as well as from the Mexican institutions of PriMMAtes in Chetumal and Campeche’s XFM. Among the Belizean representatives were members of Dawson’s Pit Fighters which operates out of San Pedro Town and members of Prevail MMA Club in Belize City. While MMA is still relatively new to Belize, our local fighter still managed to keep the win at home, defeating the Mexicans 7-1.
Currently the Dawson’s Pit Fighters consists of three members under the tutelage of Martin Dawson, a coach who trained in the disciplines of Taekwondo, Shotokan Karate, Jujitsu, Metcombaint-do, Wushu Kung Fu and MMA. Those interested in learning MMA can contact Dawson at 605-2110 or email wushu_ [email protected]
