Official Weigh-Ins – Combate Mexicali: Garcia vs Gonzalez
September 19, 2019
Victor was given the nickname “Periquito” (parakeet) by his grandfather, who passed away two years ago but is still near and dear to his heart. Under the influence of his brothers, Victor began boxing at a young age and he enjoyed the feeling of hand-to-hand combat. That led him down a path to MMA, but not before compiling an impressive record on the Muay Thai circuit. Some of his favorite fighters are former UFC champions Frankie Edgar and Cain Velasquez.
When he’s not training or competing in MMA, Victor likes outdoor sports like biking, running, and swimming. He also likes to paint and draw but above all else, he enjoys spending time with his family. Victor feels fortunate to have their unconditional support and they are his motivation for competing. Victor wants to prove to the new fans of Combate Americas that there is more to Mexico than just the bad headlines about his government and some of the other issues, and he’s hoping a big win at Estrellas II will achieve that goal.
