KMAA is home to the area's ONLY fighter!
Ovince Saint Preux suffered his first defeat in the UFC at the hands of Ryan Bader in the main event fight of UFC Fight Night 47: Bader vs Saint Preux.
In addition to being the area's only UFC fighter, Ovince Saint Preux is also homegrown talent. When he arrived at our gym, he knew nothing about MMA. He has gone from the very bottom, to the very top all at the same gym - KMAA!
Ovince Saint Preux is now 4-1 in the UFC and is preparing to fight Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante at UFC Fight Night: Uberlandia.
We also use our world-class techniques to help people achieve their own goals - inside and outside of the cage!
KMAA offers classes in Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, Sports Psychology and kids MMA as well as Strength & Conditioning classes that everyone from pro fighters to everyday moms and dads attend. If you're looking to get in shape, get in the cage or do something new with some amazingly supportive people you can find no better place than KMAA!
If you'd like some more information about how we can help YOU achieve YOUR goals, please fill out this little form and get started TODAY on the TOMORROW that you want!
However, we have no time to lick our wounds. Ovince was immediately scheduled to fight former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight champion, Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante on Nov 8 in Minas Gerais, Brazil!
Ovince's quick turn-around from main-event to scheduled fight (it only took 24 hours!) proves two of KMAA's mottos true:
1) Instead of complaining about what happened yesterday, make yourself better for tomorrow.
2) The only easy day was yesterday.
Come see why KMAA is home to the most elite fighters in the South East *AND* home to people from all walks of life who want to get in shape, be more confident and become healther!
