On the first of October the San Andreas Mixed Martial Arts (SAMMA) held its first public edition of hosted fights.
A total of three fights were hosted by founder Tyrell Tatum.
I had the chance to speak to the winners of the fights after their well earned victories for a short interview.

Allyce Korzennik fighting her opponent Alice Nolan
For how long have you been fighting?
Well, I haven't been fighting. I just saw an ad and then I decided to try it out.
Do you consider your win a matter of pure luck?
No, I consider my win pure strength.
What's your thoughts about the opponent you fought?
Well, she was a very good fighter.
On the first round she wrecked me.
Any tips you'd like to share?
Block as much as you can when you're fighting.
Then swing at your opponent when they're not so focused.
