Pellecchia is the owner, promoter and matchmaker for Showdown in
Surftown, the premier amateur fighting series in California, which brings mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting events to Santa Cruz.

He grew up in Brooklyn where he was heavily involved in the boxing team at SUNY New Paltz. Upon moving to Santa Cruz, Pellecchia set about promoting events by working for Claudio Francas’ U.S. Open and American Cup Brazilian Jiujutsu tournaments. Claudio taught him the necessary skills to excel at promoting events, “to be painstakingly diligent, and always pay attention to the details because the devil is in the details.”

Pellecchia has been successfully promoting high-quality martial arts events for more than seven years and enjoys living in the Santa Cruz area.
