KMAA is home to the area's ONLY fighter!
Ovince Saint Preux fought Jon Jones at UFC 197 for the interim UFC Light Heavy Weight Championship belt and while we didn't win, we proved we could go 25 minutes with the best MMA fighter on the planet!
OSP took Jon Jones best shots and with a broken arm and on three weeks notice, he refused to give up and went to a decision with one of the best MMA fighters to ever strap on gloves. We'll be back for the UFC title with more preparation, but we are all proud of Ovince for showing the heart of a lion in his first UFC title fight!
We also use our world-class techniques to help people achieve their own goals - inside and outside of the cage!
