Isaiah Wright: Picking On Someone His Own Size

isaiah-wright-ncfswfc1-posterOn November 5, 2016, NorCal Fight Series (NCFS) and West Coast Fighting Championship (WFC) will provide Isaiah Wright somebody his own size to pick on when the two promotions host a joint MMA event at the Metro City Soccer Complex in Rancho Cordova, California.

After thirteen amateur fights—most of which occurred at flyweight, though a couple took place at bantamweight—and amassing record of 9-4, Wright, who prepares for his pro debut, will finally compete at a weight suitable to his stature: strawweight. Mefi “Lil’ Monsta” Monterroso (2-0) will meet Wright in the middle of the NCFS/WFC cage for a tornado of human flesh totaling 230 pounds.

Monterroso, much like Wright, owns considerable experience as an amateur, except he’s never competed aboveisaiah-wright-ncfswfc-cover flyweight and has previously planted his flag in the cage as a strawweight. As a member of the Misfits Of Gold, a striking offshoot of MMAGOLD, Wright has grown accustomed to proving himself in the role of an outsider.

The number of male competitors in the strawweight division is thin, which means: Wright may soon be required to add several pounds to his frame. But a win on his professional opener will have Wright, a fighter in one of the lightest categories in combat sports, feeling like a giant.
