The line differentiating a professional mixed martial artist from that of an amateur was blurred at 559 Fights’ fifty-eighth event, 559 Fights 58: Cantu vs. Zonfrello.
Due to the collaboration between the executives at 559 Fights and FloCombat.com, three championship bouts and a cast of well-crafted talent were streamed live from Fresno, California’s historic Tower Theater.
