Tamarindo has now become a regular stop on on the tour of a group of fight promoters, pitting Central American champions against fighters traveling through the country. The Beach Club hosted last night’s fights. Unfortunately, the Red Cross, contracted to provide medical assistance, arrived two hours late.
The fights started around 8:30PM with Marcela Soto of San Jose fighting a foreign opponent. She put up a good fight, but eventually the referee ended the fight in favor of her opponent. Bruce from Playa Grande fought a Jiu Jitsu match against a Central American mixed martial arts master. There was also a Muy Thai fight. Unfortunately, the more hyped bouts never happened as rains started to come down around 10PM, ending the outdoor event.
Tamarindo looks forward to the next event!
