Elliott vs Alirez
On September 19th, 2020, Sparta Sports and Entertainment will present Sparta Wyoming 3 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. One of the fights on the card will be a 150-pound MMA bout featuring Vance Elliott vs Zeke “The Freak” Alirez. Let’s take a quick look at each fighter!
Vance Elliott trains at A Family Affair Boxing in Westminster, Colorado under coaches Fidel Martinez, Fidel Martinez Jr., and Jared Padilla. He also trains at Low Summit BJJ with coach Ryon Luscombe, which is located in the same building as AFA Boxing. Vance has been training off and on since he was 18 years old and started competing in BJJ and Muay Thai competitions in 2018.
Vance was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. He will have extra motivation for this fight. He has an uncle living in Torrington, Wyoming that has been in a very tough battle against cancer. In the last six years, his uncle has had eight operations and been on chemotherapy treatments. Vance is looking to go out and put on the best performance he can for his uncle.
Vance last fought back in 2018 in a Muay Thai fight, which he lost by decision. He will be making his MMA debut when he steps into the Sparta cage. He was originally supposed to make his MMA debut back in March at the 145 King of Sparta tournament but the event was canceled due to the global pandemic. Can Vance come out and get an important win in his first MMA fight?
Zeke Alirez trains at Top Notch MMA in Greeley, Colorado under coaches Mike Alirez for MMA and AJ Vasquez for boxing. He was born and raised in Greeley, Colorado. He has been wrestling and training MMA since he was four but his MMA training didn’t get serious until his senior year of high school in 2017. Zeke focused on wrestling at the University of Northern Colorado for two years following high school and just got back into MMA training last spring.
Zeke made his MMA debut in November of 2017. He won in the first round of the fight by submission (rear naked choke). He has not had an MMA fight since then, holding a 1-0 record in the sport. Will Zeke be able to keep his record perfect when he steps into the Sparta cage?
