Mixed Martial Arts: Jemez Pueblo fighter to make pro debut Saturday

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

From the deck of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower to the cage, the past few weeks has been something of a whirlwind for Victor Masayesva.

Masayesva, originally from Jemez Pueblo, will make his mixed martial arts debut Saturday at the Rage in the Cage.

The Rage in the Cage, which takes place at Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, has 19 MMA fights scheduled for Saturday night. Bouts start at 7:30 p.m.

Masayesva is on the undercard. He will face Albuquerque’s Jesse Jallamio in the 145-pound weight class.

Masayesva flew into Albuquerque Thursday night from Norfolk, Va., home port of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.

“I feel pretty good,” Masayesva said. “This is my first fight. I got back from deployment. I spent most of my deployment in the Persian Gulf as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.”

Masayesva, who entered the United States Navy in 2006, got involved in MMA training during his time aboard the Eisenhower, a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier that’s one of the largest warships in the world.

“It has always interested me, but I didn’t start doing any training until 2007,” Masayesva said. “I liked the training.”
