OKC Based BJJ Black Belt Triumphant at Legacy Fighting Alliance 15

Rafael Lovato Jr. - Monday, July 03, 2017

Fight night in Shawnee, Oklahoma as Professor Justin Rader entered the cage at the Firelake Grand Casino for Legacy Fighting Alliance 15. Looking to improve his Pro MMA record (*now, 6-2), Professor Rader had an amazing display of heart as he battled through three 5 minute rounds with a very game opponent in Emmanuel Rivera. Professor Rader dominated each round accordingly, setting the pace & applying his warrior spirit against the tough Rivera to come out with the win via Unanimous Decision! We at Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts are so very proud of all the hard work, determination, & sacrifice that Professor Rader put in to earn this very well deserved victory. We would also like to thank all of our students, friends, & loved ones that came out to support Professor Rader. Huge congratulations Professor Justin Rader! We so eagerly look forward to his next challenge & his improvement!
