Tuesday March 10, 2015– Ring of Combat and Dead Serious return to action on March 14 on GFL on with another stacked amateur card from Rahway, New Jersey with “Ring of Combat AM 20 & Dead Serious”. The action packed 16-bout card will feature the top regional amateurs on the East Coast MMA scene as both ROC and Dead Serious are known for producing blue chip fighters.
Kendrick Mendez (3-1-1) fights Mustafa Khalil (4-3). Mendez is coming off a hard-fought victory which he will battle back from adversity and show the fans what he’s made of on the inside. Mendez looks to make it 2 in a row as he takes on the always dangerous Khalil. Mendez has never been stopped in a fight and prefers to bully his opponent inside the cage, imposing his will through his wrestling takedowns and top control. Khalil dropped his last fight, a title fight, via a close decision. Khalil looks to get back to championship form with a win over Mendez. Being the first fighter in history to stop Mendez would get people talking and that is what Khalil is aiming to do. Khalil has KO power in both hands and has won 2 fights via TKO in under a minute. Stay glued to your screen when these two lock horns in the cage.
Roberto Munoz (4-0) battles Trevor McGovern (8-1). Munoz has defeated all of his opponents by dominant performances and will try to match McGovern on the mat but also brings heavy hands into the cage. Look for Munoz to throw combos early and try to rack up points in the early rounds. This fight has fought of the night written all over it. McGovern holds a title with another organization and for good reason as he is a grappling wizard and is very aggressive when going for the submission on the ground. All 8 of McGovern’s wins have come via RNC and his only loss was by decision. McGovern is looking to continue his upward ascent in the sport and takes on an undefeated fighter in Munoz who is not planning on being a stepping stone to anyone.
Nestor Negroni, Jr. (4-2) takes on Travis Spadafora (3-4). Negroni is coming off a tough loss in a title bout, in his last bout and looks to get back on track for another title shot. Negroni is a wrestling specialist and has solid submissions, especially from the top. Negroni also has high level cardio to go full speed for a whole fight. Spadafora fights with a high risk-high reward style that has seen him win fights in under a minute on more than one occasion. Spadafora has a solid grappling game, with great takedown defense and can mix up his striking with combos from both his fists and feet. These two athletes will go full throttle in their matchup as gold is on the line.
