"Rise of a Warrior 6" Preview

Poster coming soon!

“Rise of a Warrior 6” is back on and the card features a lightweight title fight and the continuation of a welterweight tournament.  This free event will showcase some of the rising talent in South Florida along with giving the fans a title match in the stacked lightweight division.  It all goes down on April 21 at the Havert L. Fenn Center in Fort Pierce, Florida.  

In the main event, IFG Champion Charles Rosa (10-2) fights Fernando Tovar (3-1) in a 155 lb contest.  Rosa won the title by defeating former Champion, Chad Livingston by unanimous decision.  Livingston previously defeated Tovar to win a tournament and be crowned champion so things have come full circle for Tovar who again finds himself battling for the IFG title.  Rosa is a well-rounded fighter with wins by both KO and submission and holds a significant advantage in experience over the challenger.  But Tovar has had plenty of time to re-tool and regroup and work on a different strategy since his last bout and fans expect to see a completely re-vamped Tovar once he steps into the cage on April 21.  This is going to be a wild fight as both fighters like to bring the fight to their opponents and they should meet in the center of the cage and start throwing bombs or looking for takedowns.  Expect fireworks early on.

Also on the card is the IFG Welterweight Quarterfinals featuring 8 of the toughest 170 lb fighters in South Florida.  Last year was a rousing success with the Lightweight Tournament and you can bet this year will be no different.  Whoever finally comes out of this tournament as champion will be a force to be reckoned with in the welterweight division for anyone. 

The Rise of a Warrior promotion is a force to be reckoned with as they always present a great night of fights and entertainment and have definitely thrown down the gauntlet for MMA in the Miami-area.  Don’t miss this electrifying event featuring South Florida’s finest amateur MMA athletes competing in front of a packed house on April 21.   Watch “The Rise of a Warrior 6” for FREE only at!
