Three Manteca residents representing Cortez Martial Arts Academy came up victorious in the Titan’s Cage 5 mixed-martial arts card in Elk Grove on Saturday.

In a light heavyweight duel between Mantecans who graduated from rival high schools, 25-year-old Vincent Bordi outworked Oscar Castro (Valor Training Center), 21, en route to a unanimous decision win in the co-main event title bout.

Bordi, a standout wrestler out of Manteca High and San Francisco State, improved his California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Organization record to 8-1. The 6-foot-7 Castro, a graduate of Sierra, suffered his first loss in his fourth match.

Jason Cortez Jr. and Christopher White triumphed in their MMA debuts Saturday at the Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation.

Cortez, 20, was one of the youngest combatants of night. The East Union alumnus stopped Sacramento-based Rashawn Waffer via submission in 1 minute, 7 seconds. Waffer, 24, was also making his debut in the bantamweight tussle.

White was on the winning end of an exciting yet brief stoppage. It was a showdown of 40-somethings, as the 48-year-old White locked up with 44-year-old Mel Oania (0-2). It didn’t last long, as White caught the Muay Thai practitioner out of Citrus Heights with a short left about 5 seconds into the match. The Mantecan pounded his way to a 35-second knockout victory in the welterweight division.

Cortez Martial Arts Academy members Dao Tep and Roque Reyes were also featured. Tep (4-2) lost his flyweight bout to Rafael Hernandez (5-1) by split decision, while Reyes (4-6) took a TKO defeat to still-unbeaten Joseph Morales (6-0-1).
