WFC will showcase the up and coming talent of local and regional amateur MMA fighters. Headlining the show will be South Lake’s own Ryan McCarthy. Ryan is coming off a string of victories, including a title win over Sean Shamrock, the son of UFC Legend, Ken Shamrock.
“Coming off a title win and now having the opportunity to fight in front of my home town fans here in South Lake in unbelievable! Come August 18th, I will be ready to put on a show!”

“I’d like to thank Matt McGovern and Montbleu for the opportunity to start my career in front of all of our family and friends!” said JJ Torres.
The Torres family called South Lake Tahoe home for over 20 years, where they groomed three World Champions: Hector, Alejandro, and JJ’s father, Juan and the hope JJ follows in their footsteps.
“I am honored to bring JJ back to South Lake to continue our families fighting legacy! Win, Lose, or Draw we plan on putting on a show!” said, Juan Torres.
