On October 20th, at the Titan's Cage 4 event that was headlined by Angelo Trevino vs Armando Sabala for the welterweight title, two fighters from Muay Thai Lao Kickboxing Academy earned first-round victories.
"When I moved up to Sacramento to go to college, I came to Andy's gym (Muay Thai Lao Kickboxing) and I've been there for the last two years," Westphal told MattZilla (www.srmma.com) post fight.
Aaron Westphal took on Joshua Wilbar, both entering the cage with fresh records of 0-0. After some cautious combat at a distance on the feet, Westphal took Wilbar to the ground, showing excellent control in the top position. Westphal handily transitioned to mount, where he threw down a few punches before moving his leg over his opponents face and securing an arm bar. Wilbar tapped at 1:49 in the first round, making Westphal very happy.
"I feel awesome. I always love winning," Westphal told MattZilla (www.srmma.com) post fight. "I come from a wrestling background, personally. I've won North Coast Section, I went to state three times, I was on the national team from Greco two times. Wrestling has always been a place I shine the most."
"It felt good because I have the best trainer in Sacramento, best stand up trainer. I'd like to thank God and thank Master Andy for helping me with everything," Herrera told MattZilla (www.srmma.com) post fight. "I've been having a lot of drama, and I let that anger out right now and I feel great."
