NorCal MMA’s Preview of 559 Fights 60: Aguilar vs. Liu

A vista of violence returns to the Visalia Convention Center on November 4, 2017. Before the wide-eyed stares of onlookers, C.A.M.O (California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Organization) licensed competitors will attempt to carve one another into pieces in the sixtieth edition of 559 Fights, 559 Fights 60: Aguilar vs. Liu.

559 Fights, California’s leading amateur MMA promotion, will crown champions in their lightweight, welterweight, and flyweight divisions, and the rush of excitement will surge through a stream provided by FloCombat.com.

Main Event: Anthony Aguilar vs. Austin Liu for the vacant 559 Fights Flyweight Title

Austin ‘The Dynasty’ Liu (4-2) wants to begin his legacy with a championship, and the strap at 559 Fights is a respected piece of hardware amongst amateurs. Throughout 2017, Liu split wins and losses between six fights. The 559 Fights Flyweight Title, which has escaped Liu’s grasp in the past, could reset the pattern of his record moving into 2018.

Anthony Aguilar (3-0), who trains at Dream Fight Shop, plans on creating the hopes and desires imagined behind his eyelids into a reality under the bright lights of 559 Fights. Finishing two of his three contests before the third, and final, air-horn, the undefeated prospect has demonstrated a willingness to work hard to have his hand raised.

Co-Main Event: Christian Avalos vs. Dustin Toby for the vacant 559 Fights Welterweight Title

Christian Avalos (3-0) began his journey in MMA earlier this year, debuting at 559 Fights 53, and could, potentially, end 2017 at the top of 559 Fights’ 170-pound heap. In Avalos’ three outings, all under the 559 Fights banner, he has already completed the trifecta of conclusions: a knockout, submission, and unanimous decision. Representing Ralph’s House Gym in Selma, Avalos intends on bringing home the belt.

Although Dustin Toby owns twice the experience of his counterpart, he has been inactive since 2015. By claiming ownership of the 559 Fights Welterweight Title, Toby will showcase: he was never tarnished by any ring rust nor the memory of a two-fight losing streak.

Feature Bout: Emilio Horta vs. Yuni Valencia for the 559 Fights Lightweight Title

After planting the flag of Flawless Victory MMA into the 559 Fights Lightweight Championship at 559 Fights 58, Emilio Horta (3-2) doesn’t plan on relinquishing ownership of his reign any time soon. Whether Horta’s hand is raised or not, his ‘kill or be killed’ mindset inches the audience toward the edge of their seat, as he’s never been dragged to a decision.

Yuni ‘Yunibomber’ Valencia (5-2) exploded into 2017 with two wins that ignited defeaning cheers from the crowd, one being an eighteen-second KO at 559 Fights 58. Challenging for his first title in MMA, the product of Team KO Training Center will blow the roof off the Visalia Convention Center with a win in his own backyard.

559 Fights 59: Results & Recap

September 16, 2017Although numerous split-decisions were registered on paper at 559 Fights 59, the athletes featured on the all-amateur fight card unanimously competed with intentions of evading the evaluations of others.

Main Event: Nick Maximov defeated Albert Gonzales for the 559 Fights Middleweight Title

For all three rounds, Maximov, a master on the mat, suffocated Gonzales in his domain. Fortunately for Gonzales, Maximov was unable to secure the finish—something four previous opponents can’t claim, yet there was no escaping the Chico native’s grasp.
