This past weekend was an unforgettable one for California Mixed Martial Arts (CMMA) and our local community in Gardena, CA. Our very own Javier “El Mariachi” García emerged victorious in an electrifying bout at Cage Warriors 173, asserting his dominance over top featherweight title challenger Roberto “Green Light” Hernandez. The highly anticipated showdown between these two Jitsu Black belts, known for their dynamic striking styles, concluded with Javier winning by split decision—a true testament to his skill, determination, and resilience.

Build-Up: Bad Blood and High Stakes

The lead-up to this fight was charged with intensity and drama. Both Javier and Roberto entered the octagon as the top featherweights in the country outside of the UFC, garnering a substantial amount of attention and hype. The trash talk exchanged between them only added fuel to the fire, setting the stage for an epic confrontation.

From the moment the first bell rang, the crowd was treated to a high-octane spectacle. Both fighters displayed their technical prowess and unyielding spirit, trading blows and exhibiting masterful grappling. It was a close contest that kept everyone on the edge of their seats until the final second.

A Split Decision Victory

In a match as closely contested as this one, it was evident that every strike, takedown attempt, and defensive maneuver counted. As the judges deliberated, the tension in the arena was palpable. Finally, the announcement came: a split decision in favor of Javier “El Mariachi” García. The victory proved once again that Javier deserves a spot among the elite in the UFC.

And if we’re putting a “redlight” on anything, it’s on Roberto’s “Green Light” moniker! Javier stopped him in his tracks and showed why he’s a force to be reckoned with inside the cage.
