SCL - Fight For the Troops Preview on

Sparta Combat League returns on GFL with "Fight For the Troops", a stacked MMA card on April 26 from the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland, Colorado. This event promises to be full speed from bell to bell as these pros and amateurs will do battle in the cage.

In the main event, for the SCL Amateur Welterweight Title, Austin Jones (3-0) battles Joe Barton (1-0).  Jones is unblemished in his amateur career winning all of his fights convincingly. Jones is a strong striker and has KO power in both hands.  Barton is a veteran of the United States Army and brings an undefeated record into his fight with Jones along with an iron will.  Barton is a vicious puncher and is relentless when he gets on the ground as he throws nonstop ground and pound.  Expect fireworks from these two undefeated fighters who go for gold.  

Lauren Styler (1-1) takes on Amanda "Killer Barbie" Haller (0-2) in another barnburner.  Styler is coming off a hard fought win in which she punished her opponent for 3 rounds.  Styler is an emerging fighter who is coming into her own, especially as a grappler.  Haller looks for her first win in MMA after dropping a controversial split decision loss in her last fight.  Haller has hands of dynamite and looks to put Styler’s lights out.  

Chance Chin (3-2) fights James Soiland (3-1) in another highly anticipated tussle.  Chin has won his last 3 fights in impressive fashion and looks to keep the momentum going against a gritty opponent in Soiland.  Soiland looks for his first win since 2009 and to do that he will need to shake off the cage rust and take the fight to Soiland.  Expect these two to fight at a rapid pace and be in the running for fight of the night. 

Sparta Combat League is sure to bring down the house once again as they have quickly grabbed a chokehold on Mountain West MMA and this show will continue in that tradition. Order "Fight For the Troops", and watch live and anytime afterwards on video on demand only on GFL.

Victory Combat Sports 5 Preview

Victory Combat Sports debuts on GFL at the Terminal 5 in New York City on April 25 with “Victory Combat Sports 5”.  This event will make history as the first legally sanctioned MMA event in New York.  Look for “Victory Combat Sports 5” to up the ante as it is the first MMA organization to thrown down the gauntlet in the Big Apple.   

In the main event, Bernardo Cano (1-0) takes on Rob Ovalle (2-0).  Cano is a well-rounded fighter with strong standup and great submissions.  Look for Cano to push the pace early with his striking and if he sees an opening, will look to shoot for the takedown where he can take advantage of his slick grappling.  Ovalle is a great wrestler and likes to grind his opponent down over the course of a full fight.  Ovalle is dominant with his wrestling/grappling and likes to work from side control or top where he can land punches and elbows.  Look for Ovalle to meet the pace set by Cano and even supersede it.  Expect fireworks from these two undefeated fighters.  

In the co-main event, Yuting Hong (0-1) fights Marcus Surin (1-0).  Hong looks to even his record after dropping a tough split decision that many felt he won in his debut.  Hong brings a great striking game into the cage and is great at connecting with a high volume of punches and kicks.  Surin is a grappler who is constantly looking to take the fight to the mat where he can use his submission game.  Surin’s first fight ended in the first round with him getting the tapout.  His game plan will be to do the same thing to Hong.  

Adrian Czmielewski (0-0) battles Jairo Israel Machuca (1-0).  This will be the first fight for the untested Czmielewski while Machuca has already had cage experience and showed he is a heavy hitter by getting the TKO in the first minute of his fight.  Look for Machuca to go head hunting early and often while Czmielewski will look to weather the storm and use his wrestling.

Victory Combat Sports debuts with epic fighting in front of a worldwide audience courtesy of the GFL Combat Sports Network.  Watch “Victory Combat Sports 5” on April 25.  Stream the show online at and own it forever.

World Class Kickboxing Championship Review on

Hard hitting action returned to GFL as Dead Serious Fighting Championship, a leader in developing MMA talent, expanded its combat sports footprint into kickboxing with "World Class Kickboxing Championship" in New Jersey. The WCKC debut card was stacked featuring the top, up and coming kickboxers from some of the best gyms in the tri-state area. Don't miss every punch, kick, knee and elbow as these fighters showed what they were made of. 

In the main event, for the 155 lb title, Joe Bastone (6-1) defeated Damien Bailey (2-2) via KO in the third round. Before the fight even got started Bastone and Bailey where throwing punches at each other during the stare down.  Once the bell rang, both fighters came right at each other with Bailey pressing forward and Bastone looking to counter often times off the ropes.  Both fighters were throwing punches with bad intentions and Bastone connected with a hard right that countered a flying knee from Bailey.  In the third round, Bastone and Bailey kept up their furious pace by trading shots and after scoring with leg kicks, Bastone threw a picture perfect right hand that caught Bailey on the jaw and knocked him out cold.  It was a brutal end to a fight that had a lot of anger in it from both men and after the fight, Bailey was taken out on a stretcher.  

In the co-main event, Matt Castillo defeated Chad Goodenson via split decision.  Castillo overcame a height advantage by Goodenson by getting in close and scoring with hooks to the body and face.  Goodenson did a nice job of using his legs to keep a safe distance at times, but Castillo landed the heavier punches that ultimately won him the fight.  

In other action, Erly Abrigo defeated Jason Cruz via unanimous decision in the 147 lb division.  Abrigo was first to the punch and set the pace early with a nice combo as he took the center of the ring and continued to come forward at Cruz for three full rounds.  Abrigo initiated the exchanges and scored with the crisper strikes.  

Victor Rodriguez scored a unanimous decision victory over Danny Ramirez by showing off a granite chin and landing with some solid leg kicks and overhand rights that kept Ramirez at bay and unable to get his punches off with great efficiency.  

Jerome Bourne defeated Dhezan Morgan via unanimous decision after he used his speed, size and athleticism to land combo after combo while avoiding most of Morgan’s offense.  Bourne was too big and quick in this bout and looks to be a terror in the 161 lb division.

In the main event, Steve Moxon battles Brad Riddell.  Moxon is a feared striker because of his accuracy and ability to mix up his attacks that keep his opponents on the defensive.  Moxon loves to keep a safe distance and does this with devastating leg kicks.  Will he be able to connect early and often?  Riddell is a gritty fighter who can easily take one to give one.  Riddell is looking to knock off the champion and to do that he will have to either stay busier in the ring or more likely put Moxon down for the count.  Expect fireworks from these two world class strikers.  

Also scheduled is an 8-man tournament that will showcase amazing fights and crown one winner.  Wayne Nicholls, Jake Gathercole, Daniel Soeurream, Dinesh Kanth, Chase Haley, Martin Tchong, Bentley Shefford and Paolo Riccardi.  The winner of the tourney will need to win three fights in one night so you can expect these fighters to be looking for a quick, devastating knockout in the early rounds so that they can stay fresh for the future matchups.  Whoever wins this tourney will not only be pushed to their physical limit but will also have to have an iron will and a granite jaw to sustain the punishment that they are sure to receive.
