LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KIEM) – Two local fighters made history Tuesday night and earned more than a couple of victories.
Orion and Louis Cosce were the first pair of brothers to fight in Dana White’s Contender Series. Louis won his bout versus Victor Reyna in a 72-second knockout. Orion mounted a comeback to upset Matt Dixon with a TKO. Both brothers are 7-0.
The excitement did not stop there. After the fights, both brothers earned UFC contracts from Dana White himself. Orion Cosce said the hard work paid off.
“My brother and I, we grew up with nothing,” Cosce said, “We were always there for each other. We talked about it every single day even leading up to the fight. We literally have non-stop talked about this moment and it is a huge moment for us.”
Orion Cosce also said they are ready to fight anyone and are looking forward to their next opponents.
