A local Martial Arts student at Peterborough’s World Championship Martial Arts is preparing for his first TKO MMA fight.
Stevie Yhap has been wrestling since high school, and then progressed through a variety of martial arts.
He has won 2 pro fights before, and is looking to go 3-0 in his Mixed Martial Arts career.
This will be Yhap’s first fight with TKO MMA.
And because of that, Yhap says he’s added on hours of extra training a day.
“I’m doing a lot of extra. My diet has changed a lot because I’ve gotta get down to a certain weight class. I’m coming in doing a lot of extra training with a lot of my different team mates and my coaches are putting in a lot of extra hours with me as well.”
Yhap heads to Montreal for his first fight on January 13th.
