SBG Idaho MMA athlete, Stephanie Hernandez, will make her professional MMA debut at CES MMA 56, May 31 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT! Hernandez will meet Marisa Messer-Belenchia (2-0 MMA, 1-0 CES) in a professional atomweight bout! Classic Entertainment & Sports (CES) has been promoting mixed martial arts for nearly 10 years, and is considered the premier organization on the East Coast, with many of their athletes making the jump to the UFC and Bellator. CES MMA is also streamed live on UFC Fight Pass, providing invaluable exposure for younger athletes.
Hernandez was originally scheduled for one last amateur contest on May 25 for King of the Cage: Resurgence. But when the opportunity to make the transition to the professional ranks presented itself, she jumped on it. As one of the most active competitors at SBG Idaho, Hernandez is undoubtedly ready to take the next step in her career!
