For fans of the California Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) scene, there are two rising stars that will be competing against eachother at Bellator 154 in San Jose this weekend – Josh San Diego (6-1) versus Jeremiah Labiano (9-4).
These two fighters both train in California near the bay area and have both competed on the Tachi Palace Fights (TPF) card with both of them being on the losing end of their fights, but have won on other TPF cards.
The experience they gained competing in the TPF has lead them to fighting for Bellator MMA.
Labiano has the edge in experience having a total of 13 fights total and has won his fights by every way possible with three knockout/technical knockouts, four submission wins, and two decision wins. In his Bellator debut he defeated Alvin Cacdac by decision and has gone 3-3 in his past six bouts. Labiano’s background is in jiu-jitsu training with Alexander Crispim who has competed in MMA all over California.
San Diego on the other hand has seven fights total and only one loss. He won his last fight which was also his first Bellator appearance defeating Paul Ruiz by decision. San Diego’s submission victories have all come by way of rear-naked choke. He trains at Unlimited MMA alongside Tristan Arenal.
Can Sad Diego submit Labiano, even with Labiano’s jiu-jitsu background? The question will be answered when these two wage war in the Bellator MMA cage.
