PRO MMA rising star: Kyle Dietz

Kyle Dietz is a 22-year-old young man who grew up in Iowa and is living his dream. No, he did not win as a contestant on American Idol and he is not a well-known actor reaping the benefits of fame and fortune.

Kyle Dietz is an undefeated professional mixed martial arts fighter who has finished his last four opponents in the first round with a combined total time of under six minutes. He has fought in the “Extreme Challenge” and “Courage Fighting Championshps” organizations and is currently teaching out of Spencer Fisher’s new Evolution Gym in Moline, Illinois.

He is living the dream of making a living as a professional athlete. Sure, he has not received a multi-million dollar Gatorade endorsement or fought for a UFC Title…yet. But there are whispers a WEC contract could be in his near future and he is definitely in the right camp and has the right people behind him to make things happen. It is for all these reasons Kyle Dietz was our pick for the “PRO MMA (promma.info) Rising Star of the Month.”

Pat Miletich KO’s “Wildman” at Adrenaline II

At the :50 second mark of round two, referee Michael Reid stepped in to save the fallen Thomas “The Wildman” Denny from the assault of forty year-old Pat Miletich at Adrenaline II Thursday night in Moline, Illionois.

Early in round one, Miletich landed a powerful left hook that stunned Denny and put the fight on the mat where Denny defended against the Croation Sensation’s ground and pound for the rest of the round. Denny came out aggressively striking in round two only to come in contact with the experience and boxing of a man who has trained more world champions than possibly anyone alive.
