The calendar may suggest that 2010 is quickly coming to a close, but you’ll be hard-pressed to tell that to Chris Reilly and the boys, as the Legends MMA fight team continues with a busy schedule in October.
Garren Smith’s Legends debut at Respect in the Cage
This coming Saturday, resident heavyweight Garren Smith makes his Legends debut at Respect in the Cage, taking on Andrew Gutierrez of Pinnacle Jiu-Jitsu. This will be Garren’s first fight flying the Legends logo, after making his pro debut in January in Oregon.
Garren joined Legends shortly after his debut, and has spent this year retooling his skills and helping prep the rest of the team for various events.
Garren has $60 and $100 floor seats for sale at the gym, or try FoxPomona.com.
