Yes thats right. Such a person exists and on Saturday night, in the Sparta Combat League 48, Ann Perez de Tejada had her first amateur bout. She lost as it happens, but thats beside the point. She’s 68 years old! Tejada trains at Grudge Training Center and has been training in MMA and Muay Thai for 5 years, in addition to practicing BJJ and karate.
