On Sunday, September 2nd, Caribbean Villas beach south of San Pedro Town was the setting for the official presentation of the upcoming Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event to be held on the island on October 20, 2018. Present during the event was Martin Dawson, representing Dawson’s Pit Fighters training school, Sergio Rosado of Primmates Chetumal training school and Chetumal Xtreme Cage (CXC) League, Councilor Hector ‘Tito’ Alamilla from The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) and Caribbean Villas’ Felipe Sansores, along with Belizean and Mexican MMA fighters. The MMA tournament will be the first of its kind on the island, with nine confirmed fights to take place at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex.

During the brief ceremony, Dawson and Rosado officially confirmed the event to take place in October in San Pedro. The different matches will be between Mexican and Belizean fighters, including a championship fight at the end of the event between two top Mexican competitors. Rosado said that initially there was to be a match in the female category, however, that has been canceled. Organizers are still hopeful to hold a match with two new female competitors

Fight Night! MMA Comes To San Pedro Belize

Though I know it exists and I know it is wildly popular…I have never ever seen a UFC fight or an MMA fight.

Fighting? It’s not my thing. Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Hulk Hogan are the last fighters to appear on my radar screen. Probably the late 80s, when my little brother was way bigger than me and lorded over the remote control.

Plus, it was more about the flair…and the show than about blood and punches. Look how cool Randy was…

Saca Chispas…the Old Football field on Back Street. I decided NOT to use the VIP distinction – for fear of getting blood or spit on myself – those seats are CLOSE. The refs had rubber gloves on!

And watched guys – mostly very nervous looking young guys – go into a chain link octogen and…kick and punch and roll around on the floor.

San Pedro’s First-ever MMA Tournament is a knockout!

Hundreds of fight fanatics gathered at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex for the first ever Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Tournament in San Pedro Town on Saturday, October 20th. The event was organized by Martin Dawson and his Pit Fighters training school, along with Primmates Chetumal training school, and Chetumal Xtreme Cage League. There were nine different matches featuring fighters from Belize facing Mexican fighters. The event began shortly after 9PM, with Belize’s Raheem Lambey going against Sergio Acuna of Mexico. After two rounds of grappling, it was a victory for Belize’s Lambey. The next match, saw Belize’s Allen Cawich being defeated by Mexico’s Jaime Avila in a Jujitsu fight.

Dawson told The San Pedro Sun that the event was a total success. “Many island residents attended the fight and overall it was a success,” he said. Dawson says that he plans to host another tournament on the island, sometime around March or April of the next year, and the fights will be between Belize and Guatemala. He also added that they will continue to train harder so they can be more prepared for the next MMA tournament.
