After countless years of training and preparing, San Benito native Josh “Mayhem” Montalvo finally captured his first professional MMA Championship this past Saturday in Edinburg. Montalvo won via TKO after doctors stopped the fight due to his opponent suffering a dislocated shoulder, as well as several other injuries. The former San Benito graduate now holds a 5-2 professional record.  Josh 2
With this being Montalvo’s first fight back in his home     state in quite some time, several friends and family members made the trip to watch him battle it out. “It’s really an
awesome thing to see somebody I know personally from my home town accomplish something like that,” said San Benito resident Kevin Escobedo. “There’s definitely a sense of pride in seeing him win that belt.”
