On October 20th, Angelo Trevino (4-0), representing Team Alpha Male, defended his Titan's Cage welterweight title for the first time against the previously undefeated challenger Armando Sabala (4-1) of Team USF.

Sabala, who trains out of Ultimate Street Fighters, is known for his aggressive and overwhelming striking style. Sabala had knocked out all his previous opponents in CAMO, but Trevino was prepared for immense striking talents that Sabala had planned to bring his way.

The take down did indeed come quickly. Shortly after some in-out footwork, Trevino dropped down and lifted Sabala, slamming him to the mat. From half-guard, Trevino worked his methodical ground-and-pound game to land some devastating punches. Sabala stayed strong on the bottom, throwing shots and submission attempts from the bottom, but it was the champ's position training that brought him thew victory.

All three rounds were a struggle for position. Trevino would gain position and pass Sabala's guard into side control and mount as quickly as Sabala would slip his leg in and bring Trevino back into half guard. Though Sabala was working hard to regain position, he was held to the mat and pummeled by Trevino’s wrestling.
“It sucks breaking a person’s winning streak, ‘cause I’m undefeated too. But, you know, he’s a good fighter, he’s young, and he’s still gonna come out there. So a loss won’t hurt him,” Trevino told Matthew (www.srmma.com) post-fight.
