Taylor Fox:
My name is Taylor Fox. Moved out here for school, had no interest in MMA, boxing, any combat. And then I started watching UFC, started watching boxing. So I came down here to The Arena. October of 2020, came to one class. The next day I had a pretty bad injury that set me in the hospital for like two months. About December, I’d say after my injury, Vince helped me. I wrecked my left arm. So for about two months straight, we just worked my right arm. Was able to use my left arm in about February.

Started being able to fully train with everybody. Kickboxing, boxing, Muay Thai. In about November, I took my first competition. I lost in kickboxing. Two weeks later, I fought again. I won in Muay Thai and I’m looking to compete again pretty soon. I want to compete in boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, MMA. I’m going to take my sweet time with that, because I want to be the best at that.
