Gary Grant Jr will be hosting USKA: Fighting for our Veterans and First Responders on September 25th at the Luzerne County Fairgrounds in Dallas PA. Grant has been one of the most valuable and busy men in the combat sports world these days as he provides just about any kind of apparatus needed for your event whether it’s the squared circle of BKFC, a cage, a ring, or anything else imaginable. USKA Fight Sports though, is his own promotion. Gary and his team have done a terrific job of putting on exciting kickboxing events in Pennsylvania and Delaware and they are always looking to make a contribution to the community. Grant has several things planned and will be making a nice donation to help a great cause.
MyMMANews will be on hand for live coverage and post-fight interviews. Leading up to fight night, we will also have some pre-fight chats with some of the fighters. We sat down with Sonia Reyes recently to see how she was doing in camp as she battling for a championship belt against Alex Kelly. Sonia has competed at USKA a couple of times before the pandemic halted everything and she was very impressive while gaining two victories. Reyes tells us…
“I ran and I ran, and I ran, and I ran some more during all of that down time. I also incorporated swimming into my routine and think that my cardio will be a strength for me. I also stayed very close with my coaches and found time to hit pads as much as possible and now I am glad to be able to get back in the ring and get back to work. I have seen Alex fight before and she is a very good opponent and this should be an exciting fight.”

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
