First off, who’s sanctioning a 68-year-old to fight? Colorado, that’s who. Look I love the progressiveness of the state, bu this is going a little too far. Sparta Combat League had their 48th event this past Saturday, and just like Friday at Bellator, we almost saw someone die in the cage.
Ann Perez, who is 68, stepped into the cage against 24-year-old Laura Dettman. Although Perez has been training for several years in MMA, a blue belt in BJJ, and a black belt in Karate, she has no business competing in combat sports, no matter how young she feels.
Dettman violently finishes Perez with strikes in the first round.
