Tampa, FL – Without the press present and no big build up or hoopla, Big Vito (Vito LoGrasso) won his first Mixed Martial Arts fight in the Dominican Republic. The fight went 3 rounds with Vito winning on a decision.

“The Wrestling Business has been on a down slide, so I finally decided to get off the couch and do it!” Said Vito, “It was a huge learning experience! MMA is no joke. It is to be taken seriously and is not something for the average person with no experience to do. It takes a lot of commitment and training.”

The whole event had little glitz and glamour and not a lot of people present. Vito had been discussing doing the transition for over a year but continues to wrestle with Independents and Nu Wrestling Evolution in Europe.

“You have to have heart, determination and skills,” said Vito. “I am happy to know that if I wanted to do this on a full time basis, I could be successful.” It says a lot for The Toughest Man to Ever Wear a Dress.

Big Vito does not have the Amateur Wrestling status that most do who switch fields but he survived his first fight. He returned to the US with a couple black eyes and bruised ribs.
