Born and bred in the belly of Sacramento’s Ultimate Fitness, Angelo “Baby Monsta” Trevino (7-2) will bear the flag of his Team Alpha Male brotherhood while seeking a UFC contract on July 17, 2018 as a contestant in the latest episode of Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS).
Every Tuesday evening on UFC Fight Pass, an assortment of the nation’s mixed martial artists on the brink of leaving their regional circuit in the rearview mirror tango before Dana White, the UFC’s President, for a chance to join the sport’s highest profile roster. A win isn’t necessarily enough to seal a deal with the promotion; instead, these heavy-hitting reality stars must leave a memorable impression upon the head-honcho sitting cage side with their specific brand of hurt.
Since turning pro in 2015, “Baby Monsta” has left a trail of welterweight bodies in his wake, finishing five of seven contests by way of TKO. To prove he deserves a place amongst an elite pecking order of prizefighters, this Northern California native will attempt to add another win to the four-fight streak he’ll carry into the Las Vegas-based studio and deal Oregon’s own Austin Vandefort (4-0) the first loss of his career.
