Education Happenings Podcast: Episode 5

In episode 5 of the EHP, Maritza Sanchez, the site’s first sponsored athlete, joined Dave Madden to discuss her upcoming debut as a professional mixed martial artist.

Sanchez started off in the sport with a bit of a checkered record, but her confidence and development as a fighter eventually shined, closing her stint in the amateurs on an upswing—winning three of her past four bouts, finishing two of those victories, and claiming a championship belt at 559 Fights.

On December 13, 2019, Sanchez will step into Combate Americas’ cage, otherwise known as La Jaula, in an attempt to claim her first victory at the next level of competition. During the podcast, the Northern California native expressed her excitement for the upcoming bout; what fans in attendance of the Stockton Arena, as well as watching around the world, can expect; and the importance of being broadcasted on a stage as large as Combate Americas.
