"Level’EmOut" Miami's newest mixed martial arts sensation, René Martinez, better known to the streets and public alike as "Level ", is a young Cuban American MMA fighter who is determined to grace the world with bold determination and flawless performance whenever he steps into the cage.
The history of this Dade County Legend is less likely to coincide with his recent success. Through ruthless encounters with street life as a youth, dealing with the troubles of broken home and other environmental pressures, Level sought out a new family within his neighborhood gang at the age of 12. He was given the name "Level" as he rapidly became notorious for knocking out his enemies. "Level’EmOut" soon became the catch phrase that created alarm amongst those that dared to cross him. Although it seemed that he would dedicate himself to life in the streets, Level had his vision on recreating his public persona and rising above adversity. After years of witnessing his friends lose their lives in shootings and having his own life jump in and out of jail, Level decided to focus his anger into something positive.
Level decided to take his fighting skills into a gym. This marked the beginning of his extensive journey to becoming a professional fighter, as many of those surrounding only recognized him as a "gangster" and not a credible athlete. It is only because of his strong determination to succeed that he transitioned from the streets to the professional MMA fighter that he is today.
Level has attained an undefeated record amidst what is widely recognized as brutal bare knuckle throw downs throughout Dade County. Level is often equated by media and fans abroad as the next Kimbo Slice. To put it in perspective and draw the parallel, each of these star athletes have garnered a widespread fan base by ways of the internet, creating an uncanny buzz within the realm of what is referred to as "Back Yard Brawls" and/or "Bare Knuckle Fights". After being challenged, Level's first match in the back yard of Kimbo's team demonstrated his heart and re-affirmed his reputation as a knockout artist.
Due to his incredible success, Level has drawn mass attention to himself from internationally known pro fighters, coaches and managers. This recognition afforded Level the opportunity to receive multiple offers to sign major contracts with professional leagues. Today, Level no longer has any gang affiliation. He spends most of his time training with the MMA MASTERS TEAM with Master Cesar for stand-up and Daniel Valverde for his ground game.
