BodyKore was representing at last night's USMF/Fairtex: War of the Heroes 5 event. The event was SOLD out with over 2000 in attendance as well as a few guest appearances from some Strikeforce fighters in attendance. The event started at 6pm and ended around 11pm with 16 Muay Thai and MMA battles. The card was stacked with many great fighters and most of the fights went the distance. The crowd was electrifying and the action was nonstop with no intermission at all.
Team BodyKore's Jenna Castillo's fight was the highlight event of the night as she came out to a standing ovation from her hometown crowd. In the corner with Jenna were former Strikeforce champion and actor, Cung Le, current Strikeforce lightweight champion, Gilbert Melendez and her two trainers from Fairtex Academy. Team BodyKore's Jose Palacios was also present in her corner representing with their national Mexican Flag. Jenna Castillo won the match with a 3rd TKO over her opponent.
The overall turn out at the event drew huge crowds and many fans from across the county. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support especially to Miss Castillo. Please stay tuned for more pictures and coverage from the event.
