Ryan Stonitsch might not feel it, but the pressure will be there when he steps Wednesday onto the big stage in Las Vegas for his first World Extreme Cagefighting match.
That’s just how it is when you’re the first local to get a big-time Mixed Martial Arts fight outside of the Midwest.
“Oh, I feel it. I know there’s a whole lot of fighters from around Rockford watching to see how I do. This could be a chance to show everybody out there in Vegas, and in MMA, that guys from Rockford need to be reckoned with,” said the 31-year-old Stonitsch who is part of Wednesday’s WEC eight-bout card inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.LINK
I wish him the best, I used to live around the Rockford area and I'll be rooting for him. Looks to have the skill set to stop Alex. Should be a good fight!
