Hobbs holds notable wins over two New Mexico based fighters in Gene Perez and Skyler Pendleton. His opponent will be Joe Salazar of Tucumcari who New Mexico fight fans may recognize as one of the opponents of Jiu Jitsu Ace Rafael “Barata” de Freitas.

Lowe is also a veteran of the KOTC circuit which is opposite of her opponent Lovato who just made her MMA debut this year.

Joining Lowe in her trip to Towoac, Charlie Williams will also make the trip from FIT NHB to Ute Mountain Casino. The duo from FIT NHB will only be a small percentage of the amount of fighters from New Mexico making the trip up North.

Scheduled for the card, Amanda Lovato’s teammates Ozzy Chavez and Jesse Sandoval will be representing their Rio Rancho gym in MMA competition. Team Fierce out of Gallup will also be represented heavily on the card as Joseph Hartell and Bronson Mitchell are two of the five amateurs set to represent their gym.
