NAGA Comments: 

The Featured Fighter area of the NAGA website is not only for those who already have major accomplishments, but also for newer grapplers who show the potential to grow into a force on the grappling scene. Matt Pena is just that. over the last year he has accumulated a nice record and is constantly improving and evolving his grappling and MMA skills. if you are ever in Chicago, drop by Gracie Barra Countryside and check out Matt tearing it up on the mats.
