Kyle “The Monster” Nelson
Kyle Nelson is a Lightweight Mixed Martial Artist fighting out of his hometown of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada. He is a Muskoka Kickboxing affiliate with a strong ground game, but is truly in his element when delivering devastating “stand and swing” blows. His style is very malleable, having the ability to make on-the-fly adjustments to his technique based on the situation he is in, earning him the remarkable professional standing of 10-1-0(W-L-D). In addition to reping Sheath markings in the ring, Kyle plays an essential role in Sheath’s expansion as the overseer of distribution all across the Canadian region.
“Super Dave” Acosta
David Acosta is a Texas-born Flyweight Mixed Martial Artist fighting out of Sacramento, CA.

Standing at a height of 5’5 and weighing in just over 125 lbs, David is a lightning-fast force to be reckoned with. His stand up is quick, he is lethal on his back and his cardio is remarkable; a killer combination for any weight class.

“Slippery Pete” Barrett
Peter Barrett is a Lightweight Mixed Martial Artist from Abington, MA and fighting out of Stoughton, MA. He is an affiliate of Skill of Strength Training Facilities and discloses little about his training as a fighter; however, his ability truly speaks for itself as Peter currently holds a sterling Pro MMA record of 8-0-0 with all finishes. The most notable quality of his fighting style is the sheer accuracy and devastation of his landed blows, having won the majority of his fights in the first round with a TKO. With the current streak he is on, Pete is on his way straight to the top.
The future is bright for these passionate fighters as they continue to step into the ring to push the boundaries of human capability and physical potential.
