Cody Williams’ third professional MMA fight is not until Dec. 16, so other than training at American Top Team in Beaumont, Williams has stepped up his game and started competing in grappling tournaments.
The Beaumont native who owns a 2-0 record recently competed at the Battle of H-Town Grappling Tournament, which saw over 400 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors in multiple levels.
After a first round knockout of Nate Garza at Legacy Fighting Championship 8 in September, Beaumont’s only professional mixed martial arts fighter Cody Williams will next step into the cage with Steve Garcia (7-5) at Legacy Fighting Championship 9 on Dec. 16 at the Arena Theatre in Houston. Tickets are on sale now for $85, $65, $55, $45 and $35, and can be purchased at American Top Team-Beaumont at 7310 Highway 105 in Beaumont.
While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth. We’re of the opinion that headlines and sound bites never tell the whole story. Our readers demand all the facts, facets and flavors of every story or event. And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
