Two Idaho amateurs raising their stock meet in a Bantamweight bout in the next fight when Jared “Lean Mean” Melton (3-0) and Tryston Hutchinson (1-1) meet. Melton makes his Front Street Fights debut after three-straight wins without a unanimous decision, including two first-round submissions in August 2020 and January 2021 as well as, most recently, a TKO against Erik Hanley in March 2021. Hutchinson returns for his third-straight MMA event in Boise after taking down Kyle Aslami in Front Street Fights 18 in February 2019 and appearing most recently at Front Street Fights 20 in October 2019 against Briley Streeter.
A pair of two-win fighters take the stage as Owen Robinett (2-0) and Raymond “Baby Ray Ray” Lawley (2-0) come together for a Featherweight match in the fourth amateur fight. Robinette won back-to-back bouts over the last three months in his home state of Washington against Alain Serugo in June and Kenneth Madruga in August. Lawley made his amateur debut with a 21-second TKO win over Caleb Rivers in February 2020 then returned in May 2021 for an unanimous decision over Johnny Garcia.
The final amateur fight of the night features another female bout and a pair of Idaho debut fighters in the Bantamweight class. Destiny Torres (0-0) hails from Moscow, ID and trains with V7 Martial Arts, while Arial Frantz (0-0), a Treasure Valley native, features out of No Excuse MMA.
