In his MMA debut at Rage in the Cage OKC 80, he faced Brandon Morse and went on to tap him out in round one. He submitted Aric Montoya via rear-naked choke in the third round. Then in his promotional debut with Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 138, Talavera submitted Jota Ninomiya via rear-naked choke in the first round. The victory earned Talavera the third submission win of his professional career. He also picked up win number one under the LFA banner in the process along with his third finish in a row to begin his career in the professional MMA ranks so far. At just 26 years of age with constrictive ground skills to boot, Talavera is one rocket whose protentional reaches far beyond the earthly heavens!
