FIGHT NIGHT: Nov 16, 2021
Under the Flex Fights Series in St. James New York, Raymond Ceballos made his anticipated pro debut! The crowd was excited and Ray came deep with what looked like all of Queens came out to support him. He looked in amazing shape, sharp and focused. Alex Brown is no one to overlook, a young up-and-coming fighter ready to display his skills.

There was a fill-out process in the first minute of the first round, neither fighter wanted to over-commit with so much at stake. There were good exchanges from both fighters later in the round until Ray changed levels and went for a takedown. A scramble between the two and Alex came up on top, Ray controlled Alex with his guard. In one of those exchanges on the ground, Alex made an attempt to stand up and he was caught with a triangle and tapped. Raymond Ceballos adds a win via triangle to his pro-debut!

Raymond Ceballos is an upcoming MMA fighter and he is heading to Philly for his second professional fight under Maverick MMA Promotions. Respect the Tap is a proud sponsor of Raymond Ceballos and we wish him the best. We will be in attendance, look for our flag!
