Fighter Bio


Manny "Mangler" Tapia is an American mixed martial artist from Chino, California. Tapia currently training out of Millenia Jujitsu, and fighting in the World Extreme Cagefighting organization (WEC). Tapia has a superb ground game, and has recently improved his striking to become one of the most well rounded fighters in the game.

Tapia made his WEC debut an impressive one, pummeling submissions expert Brandon Foxworth with a series of powerful shots before referee Josh Rosenthal stepped in to stop it at 3:17 of the second round of a bantamweight bout.
