Urijah Faber’s Ultimate Fitness
6700 Folsom Blvd
Sacramento, CA 95819

Guest Instructors: Dominyka Obelenyte & Sara Mcmann

Dominyka Obelenyte is a lithuanian born, Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt. She is a 4x IBJJF World champion and Marcelo Garcia’s 1st female black belt. Regarded as a true grappling phenomenon since her early teens Dominyka Obelenyte proved her star quality by consistently winning at the highest level of the sport, being one of the youngest ever world champions in an adult division (14 years of age), a deed only surpassed by Luzia Fernandes.

Dominyka is a long time advocate for equal pay and opportunities for women in BJJ and During the month of June 2015, Obelenyte launched a campaign for equal pay between men and women in the sport, as a reaction to the sport’s main federation’s (IBJJF) unbalanced payment scheme announcement, ahead of their Pro League event. The petition named “Give female competitors equal financial opportunities and rewards” created a big buzz around the subject and led the IBJJF to reevaluate their prize money.

Sara McMann is an American mixed martial artist who currently competes in the bantamweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). McMann is a former Olympic wrestler and she is the first American woman in history to receive a silver medal at the Olympics, which she won at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. McMann is a World Silver Medalist and 2-time Bronze Medalist. As of July 19, 2021, she is #9 in the UFC women’s bantamweight rankings.
