NEW YORK – Combate Global today announced its third Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fight card of the year, headlined by a stellar Mexico vs. USA featherweight (145 pounds) matchup between Jair “El Lupe” Perez (6-2) and undefeated Landry “The Lone Star Kid” Ward (5-0) on Friday, April 15, live on Paramount+ from Miami, Fla.
Paramount+ live coverage will begin with a Combate Global pre-show at 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT, and will continue with the live fight action, beginning at 11:00 p.m. ET/10:00 p.m. CT.
The 24-year-old Perez of Monterrey, N.L., Mexico will make his seventh-career star in La Jaula, the Combate Global competition cage, where he made his professional debut and where he has posted a nearly unblemished, overall 5-1 record. He will look to extend his win streak to four consecutive bouts.
The 25-year-old Ward has proven himself to be a formidable prospect with a dangerous striking base, thus far, earning victories in both of his Combate Global bouts in 2021.
A former high school football star, Ward relocated last year from his hometown of Forth Worth, Texas to Miami in order to bolster his MMA training regimen.
In the women’s flyweight (125 pounds) co-main event, 24-year-old Maritza Sanchez of El Dorado, Calif. will seek her third straight victory against Combate Global newcomer, 22-year-old Aitana Alvarez (1-2) of San Sebastian, Spain.
A featured flyweight contest and another Mexico vs. USA matchup will pit Rodrigo Garcia (3-1) of Monterrey against “Malicious” Mikey Reyes (6-5) of Oxnard, Calif.
Topping the undercard bill will be an atomweight (105 pounds) matchup between unbeaten Andrea Meneses (2-0) of Gava, Spain and Estefania Irurzo Fernandez (0-3-1) of San Luis Potosi, SLP, Mexico.
Undefeated, rising star Ivan “Titan” Tena (3-0) will collide with Geraldo Almonte (3-3) of Miami in a featherweight affair.
