SSgt Jeremy Caudillo is training to become a mixed martial arts fighter and hopes to become a UFC champion.
Caudillo wrestled in high school and college, but MMA is more than that, "its a mix of wrestling, boxing, jiu jitsu, muay tai and you have to be well rounded in all those areas to compete," he says.
Caudillo says he fell in love with the sport after watching it on TV and training with fellow airmen overseas.
In the two
years since he started his fighting career he's earned a winning record. But
deployments have kept him from the cage for more than twelve months.
That changes Saturday when he battles it out at Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium. You can check out that match starting at 8 pm.
