Melissa Cervantes (aka Thunder Rosa, Kobra Moon) made her first trip to La Juala to compete in MMA with Combate Americas. Her debut bout on Nov. 8 did not go her way.

Note: I planned to watch the fight live but was unable. I haven’t come across any highlight clips, so this is the best I could do with the information I could find.

Cervantes showed fighting spirit but lost via unanimous decision.
