Guam - UFC fighter and Island Beautification Task Force partner Jon Tuck was recognized for his recent achievements in mixed martial arts, as well as being the ambassador of the Hafa Adai spirit by receiving the prestigious Latte Award.

"I do everything through God and through our people and my family, those that support me especially, it's in my blood, I just try to the people of the world that we come from a little island and we got more to offer than just being that," he explained.

Governor Eddie Calvo made the presentation at his chambers in Adelup and praised Tuck for representing the island in mixed martial arts by competing with some of the best fighters around the world and still stay true to his Chamorro roots by displaying a humble attitude.
