Efrain Escudero dominates in his return to Arizona

Efrain returned to his Arizona roots last night, fighting in a local promotion,  Rage in the Cage.  He had a dominant performance, submitting promising up and comer Jeremy Larson by armbar in the 3rd round.

Efrain has been training hard and is focused on returning soon to the UFC.

Great job Efrain!
