Tobias looks to avenge only MMA loss

Guam - This Friday at the UOG Field House Micah Tobias will look to avenge his only loss of his career when he steps into the cage against Ronnie Borja. Tobias is a dangerous striker who can end the fight with one punch but will have to conserve his energy this time around.

Tobias says that the last time they met things didn't go as planned in camp but training has been good now and he's ready to go fight night Friday. He told KUAM Sports, "I wasn't a 100 percent I had a lower back problem and I had no energy. You know I never felt like that before and this time I went back and fixed the problems and this time I'm going to go in there and it's going to last 1 round or 5 rounds."

The lightweight title belt will be up for grabs when the two fighters meet in the center of the Terror Dome for the second time. Borja weathered the storm and was able to hang on for the win despite losing early on the scorecards. Tobias is determined to prove he still is the top 155-pound fighter on Guam.

Tobias added, "He did pretty well and he kind of has my style of fighting, trying to take out the legs and work the all around game. This time around I'm just going to go in there calmer and let him wear him out. I just worked a lot on recovery so I think that's going to be a big factor in this fight."
