This past Saturday local boy and UFC fighter Brad Tavares dominated his opponent Nate Marquardt @ UFC 182 in Las Vegas. Returning from back to back losses, the young hawaiian knew he had to show and prove that he is Ultimate Fighting material, so thats exactly what Brad did. After fighting all 3 rounds the judges scored the fight 30-27 for Tavares. Wow, what an amazing victory for Brad. Against someone with a name like Nates, it only solidifies that Brad is apart of the new elite fighters representing for Hawaii. We are very proud of you Brad, keep up the hard work and dedication. Keep inspiring the youth and keep doing you! Much aloha from Defend Hawaii, we will always continue to #SupportLocalAthletes!
