Jesse Forbes wins at MTX Audio: Fight Night 2

Arizona Combat Sports’ Jesse Forbes may never be able to live down his time on The Ultimate Fighter 3. With that being said, his performance last Friday night at MTX AUDIO’s FIGHT NIGHT 2: EVOLUTION is a step in the right direction in helping  him become recognized for his fighting instead.
