Luling-based Jason and Fatima Mallett ready to showcase their skills in Austin’s Belts of Honorius 6
AUSTIN, TX, June 21, 2014 – A husband and wife tandem are two of the featured attractions coming up on tonight’s Belts of Honorius 6 amateur MMA card set for Emo’s Riverside. “Ferocius” Fatima Mallett was already set to take on Roxanna Ceasear in the night’s main event for the women’s 120 lbs. title. Her husband Jason however took a fight literally at last minute notice to join her in the cage.
The pair train at Luling MMA with owner/instructor King Webb, Wilbur Wood, Angel Saucedo and others.
“Our team mate Christian (Clack) had problems finding his medical records to turn into the state and couldn’t fight,” said Fatima. “Jason didn’t want Alejandro (Rodriguez) the opponent to have gone through a full camp and have his opponent not be able to fight him so he is stepping in. It’s a lower weight than he’s used to and all that but he’ll be ready. He’s been coming up to classes, runs 4 miles a day and has a weight routine as well. He stays active, on and off camps like me. He’s been there helping us spar and get ready. …Little did he know it was his camp too.”
As for Fatima, she’s excited to fight on the same card as her husband but make no mistake about it, she’s focused on her task at hand:
“I feel focused, ready to go in and show everyone what I’ve earned and work to ensure my hand gets raised again Saturday night! Nael said she’s a strong, tough opponent. This is my match up made in heaven for me. I’m known to arrive violently and have a unique style and I’ve been wanting a test and a chance to prove to everyone I’m here for the long run and not going anywhere. Pro is my future, UFC is my goal. I can’t guarantee I’m going to win or lose on Saturday but I do guarantee the community, my team, fans, my family and myself that I will deliver above and beyond my capability and I WILL capitalize on the first given opportunity in the ferocious style they all love and can’t wait to see.”
