Check out the latest submission to Vice’s Fightland from Fit & Fearless member Amy Winters:
Warren Stewart fought his first pro MMA fight when he was just 18 years old. It was 2007 and he lost to Daniel Pineda, who would go on to fight in the UFC. For his trouble, Stewart got a metal plate under his left eye.
Stewart has an almost manic energy when he talks about fighting and an infectious smile that will make you root for him. He also goes by the name War Stew, which is awesome.
