In a nationally televised event at Twin River on August 8, Felix will take on Julian Lane. AXS TV will begin coverage at 7:30 p.m. with Felix vs. Lane headlining around 10 p.m.

MMA or mixed martial arts is a combination of all combat sports including boxing, wrestling and Judo.

This isn’t the first time Felix and Julian were set to face off in the cage. After sustaining an injury, Felix had to call off the fight that was schedule for June 27. Now he is healthy and ready to compete.

Felix has been involved in contact sports like this for most of his life. “I wrestled in high school here in Cranston, and also wrestled in college. Then I got into Judo and my first fight was offered up one week into my training for mixed martial arts,” Felix said. He has been addicted ever since.
