Miami street fighter turned MMA prospect Rene Level Martinez signs four fight deal with Fight Time Promotions
Infamous YouTube fighter Rene "Level" Martinez (3-0-1) has found a new MMA promotion to call home. Martinez and Florida's Fight Time Promotions announced that the ex-Miami street fighter has signed a four fight deal with the company. Fight Time Promotions is run by former American Top Team striking coach and Olympic boxer Howard Davis Jr.
Martinez made a name for himself fighting in the same backyards as Kimbo Slice (4-2). As a 170 pound MMA fighter Martinez made his debut in September 2009 to much less hype than his heavyweight street fighting counterpart. In four career professional fights Martinez has gone the distance three times and has only managed to stop MMA rookie Charles Champion (0-1).
Fight Time 9 MMA Explosion will take place on Friday April 27th at the War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Martinez will compete on the undercard versus a unannounced opponent. Former UFC light heavyweight Wilson Wilson Gouveia (13-8) will headline Fight Time 9.
Now 38 years old Martinez's days as a viable MMA prospect have dwindled to its lowest levels. Martinez's management team made the right call when they inked a long term deal with a stable MMA promotion like Fight Time. If, Martinez can put "butts in the seats" and rack consecutive noteworthy wins than he has an outside shot at making it in a national MMA promotion.
Martinez's charisma and archive of online street-fighting knockouts could leap frog him to the front of the free agent line if he adds to his highlight reel under the Fight Time Promotions banner.
