Viktor Pesta is a Czech fighter raised in town of Rožmitál pod Třemšínem. He started training MMA at the age of 18 in Příbram. Not long after that he moved to Prague to study at university and started training in Penta Gym Prague. After nine months of training (including the time in Příbram) he made his amateur debut. He won in the first round via guillotine and it was obvious that he’s a promising prospect.
