Ro Califano’s Long Road to the Top
Friday, February 12, 2010
Article By MarQ Piocos - News Editor


Every journey starts with a step, and Ro Califano is making that first step count. She has a tough pro debut ahead of her as she faces Michelle Waterson (6-3) at the Extreme Beatdown 6 this Saturday in North Dakota.



Califano took some time to talk to “Sportsgeeks” about her upcoming match and her training. She has been waiting for a fight for quite a while and is anxious to get into the cage.


“I have been training for five years now,” Califano explained. “An actual MMA event is something I wanted to do. I was just waiting for the opportunity. I was suppose to fight in November, but that didn’t happen. I am just looking to test myself against some of these girls in the cage. I have nothing but respect for them.”

Califano has a great training team behind her at Kings MMA. There has been some great fighters that have been training her for this first fight.

“Mostly (I have been training) with Rafael Cordeiro,” Califano stated. “Fabricio Werdum – he helps out a lot. He has been training with us. Wanderlei Silva – he has been helping out. He trains there as well. (Kings MMA is) where I have been training with those guys.”

Califano is hoping for a big upset in this fight, and says she is looking for everything from Waterson.

“She is good all around,” Califano admits. “We are going to look at it like she is an all around good fighter.”
