Miguel Salazar is 24 years old and trains out of MMA's fight capital Las Vegas, NV. His whole life is in Sin City and he began training in martial arts from an early age. Being born & raised in Vegas and having a mother who worked at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino allowed for some pretty cool experiences as a kid. The UFC hosted The Ultimate Fighter at the Hard Rock and he remembers being the only little kid there, running around with a t-shirt for all the fighters to sign. Miguel has always been around premiere professional fighters which led him to meeting his coach at 12 years old, and eventually snagging his first victory at Grapplers Quest - from there he was hooked.
While keeping him centered with martial arts, his mother also encouraged his love for art, which attributed to him becoming a professional tattoo artist. He's a true talent with a touch of gold and a love for many crafts - he understands the intricacies of greatness, and expects positive outcomes no matter his path. To say his plate is full is an understatement, excelling in both art forms, and working as an EKG technician at the hospital.
When he's not competing in martial arts you can find him at video or photo shoots. Getting signed at a talent agency he's already produced two commercials for a major brand and local businesses.But there's one thing he wants more than anything and that's to get to the UFC. He's met Dana White as a kid & young adult, and believes in his soul he will return to shake Dana's hand again.
