OKC Team Lovato MMA Victorious At KOP 53

Rafael Lovato Jr. - Tuesday, April 18, 2017

It was Fight Night at The Criterion in downtown Oklahoma City, where Trigger KO & KnockOut Promotions held their professional MMA event, KOP: 53. Featured on their card were Team Lovato MMA warriors, Aaron McKenzie as the Co-Main & Professor Justin Rader as the Main Event! It was an incredible experience as Team Lovato MMA went undefeated that night starting with Aaron McKenzie who was able to submit his opponent with a broken hand in the second round making his record now 4-0 as a professional fighter. Immediately following Aaron's outstanding performance was Professor Justin Rader who had a phenomenal showing of his evolution as a mixed martial artist, going the distance & displaying the progress of his striking as well as overall stand up game. Professor Rader came out on top winning via Unanimous Decision increasing his professional record to 6-2! 

We at Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts would like to congratulate both Professor Rader as well as Aaron for their amazing accomplishments! We are so very proud to have these two as representatives for our Martial Arts Family. There can only be greater challenges to overcome in the future for these two & we look forward to seeing their continued growth!
