Isaiah Hughes: A Welcomed Welterweight to MMA in 2017

Since entering 559 Fights’ cage earlier this year to launch his debut into MMA, Isaiah Hughes (2-0) has grabbed the attention of every C.A.M.O (California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Organization) welterweight throughout ‘The Golden State.’

The fighting pride of Arroyo Grande, California became a fan favorite inside the Visalia Convention Center at 559 Fights 54 after bullying Luis Lozano from one side of the canvas to the other and punctuating the contest with a perfectly executed spinning back elbow.

More recently, Hughes returned to 559 Fights to face Matthew Shattle at 559 Fights 56. In a mere twenty-one seconds, Hughes ejected the crowd from their seats by raining a violent assault of ground-and-pound on his opponent and flooding the possibility of escape.

Two dominant performances in the books have charmed fight fans into anxiously awaiting Hughes’ next match-up and contemplating his future in the sport.
