Arturo "Meathead" Basulto

Arturo Basulto grew up in Oceano, CA where he attended Arroyo Grande High School.  He played football and swam, but his real passion was wrestling, earning the California High School State Championship as a Junior, an incredibly difficult feat! Arturo went on to attend Cal Poly where he wrestled for 5 years and worked at Meathead Movers. While in college he placed 4th in the PAC-10s as a true freshmen, 5th as a Junior and unfortunately couldn't finish his senior season with an injury default. Here are some more of his accomplishments in wrestling: 

  • 4x International All American (2x Greco, 2x Freestyle) 
  • 2003 California High School State Championship Runner up 
  • 2x US Open Division All American 
  • 1st Place in the Sunkist International Tournament 
  • 2x World Trials Qualifier 
  • 2010 Top Six at the World trails

You can now find Arturo grappling the books as he's working in the accounting department of Bragg Companies in Long Beach, CA. Coaching wrestling at Orange Lutheran High School in Orange, CA. Or, training with Team Oyama Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness in Irvine, CA. Beyond fighting to defend the wrestling program of his alma mater, Arturo fights in honor of his late father Benito Basulto, who passed away one year ago from the date of this fight. Arturo loves his mother, Julia, and his sister, Paloma, and "wants to make everyone proud."
