Then on December 1st, 2012 Valtellini fought at the “Muay Thai in America” show in Playa Del Rey, CA. Joe Valtellini got cracked hard over his left eye by his opponent Mehdi Baghdad with blood flowing profusely.  The blood wasn’t dripping into Valtellini’s eye so the referee allowed him to continue. Joe Valtellini ending up winning the fight by unanimous decision despite the gash.  If you haven’t heard of Valtellini yet he is definitely a fighter to watch out for. He fights with a lot of heart and determination and is now ready to make his mark internationally. I’m sure Glory has big plans for him.
