January 16th at Rio Rancho ...

Rio Rancho, NM: 2015 was an expansion year for Fight to Win and RMN Events which featured an exciting combined effort to bring Grappling to the Santa Ana Star Center. 

This Saturday, January 16th, marks the second annual grappling tournament which shares mat surfaces with the scheduled wrestling tournament, the original New Mexico Showdown. The tournament will not only feature wrestlers K-9th, but also offer grappling to all ages. 

Many of the wrestling clubs also offer grappling as one of the disciplines. UFC high profile fighters with wrestling backgrounds make their homes in Albuquerque, a few short miles from Rio Rancho, one being past champion, Jon Jones. 

The Santa Ana Star Center is one of the top venues in the mountain state region and home to the New Mexico State Championships in February.
