Fighter Bio


Emmanuel Newton is known as the ‘Hard-core Kid’. Emmanuel actually earned the nickname due to his tastes in music, although he does acknowledge that his fighting strengths are his positive energy and his will to destroy anyone and anything that stands in his way.

Emmanuel learned some Muay Thai from his father who was based in Thailand during the Korean conflict for about 15 years. Also he was doing wrestling in high school at the same time.”

Emmanuel started competing in MMA after Paul Herrera saw him training with Tito Ortiz in Huntington Beach, he gave the Hard-core Kid an opportunity to fight in a local show.

Now a full-time fighter, Emmanuel trains at Antonio McKee’s Body Shop Fitness Gym where he works out with a number of other big-name athletes, Antonio McKee and all the Sabres.
