Elias Egozi vs Mark Bunkley
Sparta Sports & Entertainment has an amazing card lined up for fans on November 7th! In addition to the historic Lethwei title fight, Sparta also has an Ammy MMA fight featuring Elias Egozi vs Mark Bunkley. This fight will be taking place at 166 pounds due to it being made on short notice. Let’s take a quick look at each fighter!
Elias Egozi is an MMA fighter fighting out of Aurora, Colorado. Elias trains with Elevation Fight Team, as well as at High Altitude Martial Arts with Professor Cody Donovan. While Elias fights out of Aurora, he considers himself a product of the world culture.
“My grandparents were born in Turkey and Lebanon and my parents in Cuba and South Florida. I live in Aurora, Colorado now, and am fighting out of here but certainly consider myself a product of the world culture and not any one specific place.”
Elias started training at HAMA in February of 2019 with the goal of being a professional MMA fighter. He’s been training 7-10 times a week since then. Elias will be making his MMA debut after having his first kickboxing fight for Sparta back in August. He faced Chris Arena in a competitive scrap but ultimately walked away with a loss. Looking to get his first win, Elias is motivated and ready to step into the Sparta cage.

Mark Bunkley is an MMA fighter originally from Henderson, Nevada but now fighting out of Vilseck, Germany due to military obligations. Nicknamed “Funky”, Mark has spent extensive time training at Brazilian Top Team San Antonio in Texas but is now the head coach of Bavarian Bad Boyz MMA in Vilseck.
“Shoutout to all the great role models and life mentors at Brazilian Top Team and the Air Force TACP.”
Mark grew up wrestling and started training jiu-jitsu in 2015, and then standup in 2016. Coming into this fight with a 1-2 record, this will be Mark’s first fight since 2017, and his first fight taking place outside of Nevada.
Mark has been preparing for this fight with the help of 18A Fitness, his military training, and personal training led by retired Special Forces Captain Kevin Edgerton.
“Elias looks like a tough opponent with an array of disciplines. If I can keep the pressure on him, and stick to my strengths, I’ll win the fight.”
