Untitled-1To become a champion you must push farther than you think you can go. Every fighter will confront exhaustion at some point. You must be able to get past the pain, the discomfort and the urge to give up. A fighter must empty the tank every workout. Leave it all in the gym, on the track and in the weight room. When fight day comes and you are waiting for your name to be called isn’t the time to be wondering if you could have worked a little harder. It’s too late. When it’s time to step through the ropes you can have no doubts. It’s time to compete like a champion, saving absolutely nothing of yourself. All your energy, all your heart, all your soul, all your competitive fire needs to explode in that ring. If you can do that you will be a UCA champion.

On amedawarSaturday July 23, 2016 Agua Caliente Resort & Casino will host the SoCal Battle of the Badges. The event will be headlined by two of the best female fighters going toe to toe for the UCA Welterweight Championship title. The #1 ranked Jr Welterweight Asiah Medawar, San Bernardino Sheriff’s Dept. is moving up the 154lb Welterweight limit and #1 ranked, Jr Middleweight Kat Proudfoot, 29 Palms Fire Dept. is moving down a weight class to make this fight happen. The UCA caught up with Asiah Medawar to ask her a few questions about the upcoming fight.

UCA – How is training going?
AM – Training is going great! I have been pushing it day in and day out in the gym.

UCA – Has training for this fight been more intense compared to your other fights?
AM – Whenever I am preparing for a fight I always give everything I got because if for some reason I lose I don’t want the reason to be because I didn’t put in the work.

UCA – Who is your coach and what gym are you training at to prepare for the fight.
AM – My main Coach is Robert Espinosa and he is out of the Victorville Police and Fire League. I also train with Danny Garcia out of Millennia MMA

UCA – Are you sparring with men as well as women?
AM – Yes I spar with both men and women.

UCA – When sparring with the guys do they take it easy on you because you are a girl?
AM – It depends on the guy if he is a lot bigger than me then he will hold off on power shots but if not it’s a normal sparring session.

UCA – If you had to pick one fighter whose style most resembles your style who would it be?
AM – That’s a hard question to answer I think every fighter has their own style in fighting.

UCA – What do you feel your strongest weapon in the ring is?
AM – I think my power, cardio, and my determination is my biggest weapon.

UCA – Are you working on anything specific in training camp to prepare for your fight with Proudfoot?
AM – That is something we will have to wait and see when we fight on July 23rd.

UCA – Do you feel you will have to put on the best performance of your career to win the title?
AM – Yes I do. It’s not going to be an easy fight, she is a good fighter but I’m going to get in there and give it all I got.

UCA – If the fight is close going into the 3rd round will you come out hard and push the pace to win the round?
AM – Always, without a doubt.

UCA – Are you nervous about fighting in the main event in front of nearly 2000 people?
AM – No, the more people the better!

UCA – What will you be thinking about as you walk to the ring?
AM – I will be thinking about my family and friends because their support and encouragement is why I’m where I’m at today.

UCA – At the end of the fight will your name be announced as “And The New UCA Welterweight Champion?”
AM – God willing, my hand will be the one raised at the end of the fight. I will be the next champion.

Saturday July 23, 2016 Agua Caliente Resort & Casino will host the SoCal Battle of the Badges. The event will be headlined by two of the best female fighters going toe to toe for the UCA Welterweight Championship title. The #1 ranked Jr Welterweight Asiah Medawar, San Bernardino Sheriff’s Dept. is moving up the 154lb Welterweight limit. The #1 ranked, Jr Middleweight Kat Proudfoot, 29 Palms Fire Dept. is moving down to Welterweight to make this fight happen. The UCA caught up with Kat Proudfoot to ask her a few questions about the upcoming fight.

UCA – How is training going?
KP – I always think of Ali when someone asks this, particularly now as we are so recently mourning his death. “I hated every minute of training. But I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” I find that to be so true when training for something in particular, rather than just the love of training.

UCA – Has training for this fight been more intense compared to your other fights?
KP – Emotionally, yes. My last MMA fight was a loss, and my most recent MMA fight my opponent fell out and I did not get to fight. I have the emotional intensity of three training camps combined.

UCA – Who is your coach and what gym are you training at to prepare for the fight?
KP- My coach is Mark Geletko, and I box out of Fight Club 29 in 29 palms CA.

UCA  – Are you sparring with men as well as women?
KP – I spar with more men than women, actually.

UCA – When sparring with the men do they take it easy on you because you are a woman?
KP – They wouldn’t dare.

UCA – If you had to pick one fighter whose style most resembles your style who would it be?
KP – Jeez, I’m not sure. I’m still developing my own style so I don’t really have an answer for that.

UCA – What do you feel your strongest weapon in the ring is?
KP – Tenacity. I’ve fought girls better than I, but I’ve always been meaner.

UCA – You have been busy in the ring and in the cage and you are coming off a big win over Jasmine Isiodoria, EMS January 30, 2016. Asiah Medawar last fight was May 17, 2014. Do you feel her long layoff gives you an advantage?
KP – No, I don’t actually. When you haven’t competed in a long time and you come back, you need it more. There’s a newly lit fire. I’m not taking her layoff as an advantage in the slightest.

UCA – If the fight is close going into the 3rd round will you come out hard and push the pace to win the round?
KP – I always do.

UCA – Are you nervous about fighting in the main event in front of nearly 2000 people?
KP – A fight is a fight, no matter who’s watching.

UCA – What will you be thinking about as you walk to the ring?
KP – “I hope the announcers cut this short so I can get to the face punching”

UCA – At the end of the fight will your name be announced as “And The New UCA Welterweight Champion”
KP – Yes

They dominated the competition and were considered the best in California and perhaps the country.  Those glory days may soon be back. Under the guidance of boxer/coach Jorge Gonzalez  LAPD fighters Hector Mendoza, and Quincy Mirage, have established themselves as the best in their respected weight class. 3rd ranked Middleweight Mike Delery hopes to join his stablemates at the top by the end of the summer. Jorge has proved he can teach and empower his fighters to reach their full potential to become a champion. Iron sharpens iron, when training and sparring with top level guys everyday you have no choice but to get better.  Coach Jorge Gonzalez is already a lock for “UCA Trainer of the Year.”

FullSizeRender12Power is a dangerous thing. When you fight a guy with knockout power you have to fight a near perfect fight. There can be no distractions. You have to be in moment. There are no do overs or second chances. If you lose focus and get caught, it’s lights out.
