In pro mixed martial arts action….WOW!
Orange County will be well represented this Thursday as Fight Club OC fans might witness the best mma prospect in all of Orange County when Fullerton’s 4-0 Curtis Millender looks to stay perfect, but he will be in a battle as he faces another Huntington Beach Bad Boy in veteran mma warrior John Mercurio.
