Nate’s first fight was done by referee stoppage of the fight after he took his opponent to the ground with a right hook, with the second being a tap out with a arm bar.  Who knows how Nate will take out the next one but as he says he will do what he needs to do. He isn’t sure about where his next fight is, as it may be in Nebraska or in Illinois, and could be as soon as late September.

Nate says he trains 3 times a day, saying some days it’s “grueling.” He keeps focus on his family and friends to make it through. “What motivates me is my family and friends,” said Otero.  “Circleville means a lot to me, it taught me community. “I want to give back to the Circlevile community, I look forward to that. I would love to fight here also if they would allow it.”
