bioPIC
My name is Mariano Mendoza. I was born in Los Angeles, CA. At the age of eight I was in and out of foster homes, boy’s homes and Maclaren Hall for 9 years.
I am blessed to have had loving and caring foster parents and great role models that educated me and taught me to love and respect others.
Education was the key, along with positive people whom encouraged and motivated me. I graduated from John Glenn High School in Norwalk, Ca.
I have taken a lot of the negativity from my childhood and with God’s help I turned into a positive outcome. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1986 and enlisted in the U.S. Army.
I graduated from Cerritos College in 2001with an AA in Marketing. I am a former bodybuilder and World Champion Power Lifter. I won Muscle Beach Venice 2 years in a row.
My specialties are Kick Boxing, Cage Fighting, Karate, and Arm Wrestling. I strive to be the best at everything that I do. I am currently focused on an Acting Career and a Stuntman.
I am the first Heavy Weight Mexican to fight Pro World Valletudo/Cagefighter for a heavyweight belt. I fought Francisco Bueno in Brazil.
