Local fighter featured in live MMA event

Published on

Live Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) returns to Sarnia this weekend when “Future Combat Stars” takes place at the Station Music Hall on Campbell Street Saturday night.

The 19+ event features a series of matchups, including local 21-year-old amateur fighter Beau Roberts.

His story is a special one, according to organizers, because as a child, Roberts always dreamed of becoming a UFC fighter, but suffered from seizures and eventually required brain surgery.

Aside from working two jobs, Roberts trains four to five times a week in kickboxing with his coach Woodrow James at We Are Fitness, along with boxing and Brazilian jujitsu with his partner Josh Taylor.
