Alex Morono

Alex’s MMA interest was sparked when he was 15 when he saw his first ever MMA fight on Pay-Per-View. A few of Alex’s friends were into boxing and BJJ and recommended he start to train at a local gym. January of 2007 Alex joined LA Boxing, after a few months of constant training under Antonio Flores. Alex took his first “in gym” fight and won with a head kick K.O! With the BJJ teacher leaving to Brazil, LA Boxing hired Chad Robichaux to fill in the void and the rest was history. After working with Chad on the mats, Alex had developed a great relationship with the new coach. Chad opened his own academy in October of 2007.

After a trip to Brazil of the best training of their lives and more importantly, were introduced to Gracie Barra. After returning home, Chad had plans to take the gym in a new direction and progressed forward by becoming part of the Gracie Barra family. Alex competed in many Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments for the next year and after trips to Florida for the IKF tournament and getting to know the local MMA fight scene a little better, Alex was ready to test his metal again June 5th of 2009. Alex won the fight in 0:45 seconds of the first round with an armbar. After the fight, Alex was given his purple belt in BJJ. January of 2010 Alex was given the opportunity to coach at Gracie Barra Centurion in South Africa. Upon returning home in April, Alex was back in shape and ready to get back into the fighting scene.

Alex was back in the cage May 14th of 2010 to win again. The next fight came less than a month later this time competing in a Thai fight then a Muay Thai tournament in July. With Alex in prime shape and gaining more experience as the months went on, Alex was to fight for the USACA Welterweight Championship September 18th. After a hard fought 5 rounds with Pete Sprjac, Alex won the title belt and a new level of competition was on the horizon. December 2010, Alex made his professional debut and won in the first round. Alex record now is 3-1.
