Let’s take a look at the upcoming fights.
Trays vs Bartholomew
Both Bandejas and Bartholomew , both are looking for a win, both men are currently on a two-game losing streak. Bandejas was defeated in October of last year by submission and lost by unanimous decision to Sergio Pettis in July of last year. Meanwhile, Bartholomew lost his last two fights by unanimous decision. In this duel, we will see two veterans of the sport throw their hands from the beginning. Bartholomew will more than likely stick with his wrestling, but Bandejas, who trains with American Top Team, could have the perfect defense to block any potential takedown. Make sure that Bandejas works fast with his feet as he looks for a possible victory by knockout.
Carlos Rivera vs Jose Avalos
A fifth-grade jiu jitsu black belt, Avalos will use his fighting game to try and extend his winning streak to three. But Mexico’s Avalos is hungry for a win and wants to impress El Jefe Campbell Maclaurin as he makes his Global Combate debut. Rivera, a physical education teacher, will do his best to keep the fight going as he hopes to get back into the winning column coming off a loss in March. On the other hand, Ávalos has his fighting background to come out with a victory. Trained by Royler Gracie, the construction worker plans to take down his opponent and seek a submission victory as he returns to action inside the cage.
Acosta vs Coates
Acosta is expected to walk inside the cage with intensity and looking for a quick victory, but Coates must slow down by relying on his base work. Acosta is coming off a victory in April when he defeated Allysen Breeden by TKO in the first round. On the other hand, Coates last competed in an exhibition fight against Flore Hani, where he was awarded a split decision. We’ll see if the absence of the cage impacts Coates, but if she used her time wisely, a fresh fighter should properly challenge Acosta by pushing her to her limits.
Alequin vs Martinez
Sanford MMA standout Alequin has impressed inside the cage, but Martinez, whose background consists of wrestling, sambo, boxing and Jiu jitsu, could be a roadblock. Alequin recently defeated Jorge Masvidal’s prodigy and wrestler Charlie Decca in April. Alequin will use his hands to formally introduce Martinez. However, Martinez will have to rely on his grappling game if he is to maintain his unbeaten record.
