Keedies Corner Post Fight Interview @Breakthrough MMA Event


Published By Keedies Corner

Written by Bruce Walton Jr

Just incase you missed it, Keedies Corner was granted access to this great amateur MMA event late November. Breakthrough MMA hosted yet another great event full of young and hungry fighters throughout Florida. The night was full of brutal knockouts, crazy submissions, and nasty bone breaks. Keedies Corner was honored to do the post fight interviews for this fighting event. We were able to catch the man of the hour, Calen Holcomb, the Breakthrough MMA former 7-0 170lb Champion (now pro) after his bloody massacre of a fight that ended in a rear naked choke submission victory.

As a former fighter, we watched Jason Arnett (CEO of Breakthrough MMA) grow as a fight promoter. As his reputation for putting on great events grew it forced him to seek biggers venues which led him to the Ocean Center.

The opportunities that his events are presenting for the young fighters are amazing. About a year and a half ago a young man, Shawne Butler, grew a great interest in fighting. With his 5 kids and 1 more on the way, he felt in his words he would “fight his (my) way out of the hood”. After he trained for several months Jason granted him access to showcase his talent and debut in his first cage fight.

Soon after, tragedy struck when Shawne Butler passed away in a tragic car accident not to long after his 24th birthday. The family and friends will cherish the opportunity that Jason presented Shawne which allowed us to see him live out his dream before he was called home.

There have been a numerous amount of fighters that have gone pro after being able to fight on the platform Jason Arnett built. We look forward to supporting more events.
