OTM - August Apocolypse Preview on GFL.tv



Off the Chain (OTC) returns on GFL with “August Apocalypse” on August 2 from the Summit Arena in Hot Springs, Arkansas.   This event brings together all of the top fighters in Arkansas and the surrounding area as OTC puts on another stacked pro/am card for the rabid fans of the area.  Currently the event plans to have 20+ fights!

Scheduled to compete, Anthony Jones takes on Aldir Junior.  Both men have a lot riding on this fight as they are just starting out in their pro careers and looking to climb the ladder fast.  Jones is a solid wrestler with strong takedowns while Junior is an expert grappler and can hit submissions off of his back which he will need as Jones will be looking to take Junior down fast and hard.  Expect a chess match on the ground with Jones’ ground and pound and Junior’s submission attempts.  

In other action, Carlton Little (3-2) fights Lemarcus Tucker (2-0).  Little is a heavy hitter and brings KO power into the fight with both hands.  Little is usually in the running for fight of the night and this fight with Tucker looks to continue in that tradition.  Tucker turned pro earlier this year and already had 2 wins via stoppage.  Tucker will look for number 3 against Little.  Tucker brings terrific ground and pound into the fight and got his last opponent to submit due to strikes.  If this fight hits the ground, it will be a game changer as whoever ends up on top will probably finish the fight there.  

Don’t miss “August Apocalypse” presented by Off the Chain on August 2.  Watch all the action and witness the champions of tomorrow as they fight today, live on the GFL Combat Sports Network exclusively on iPPV.  




SCL - Heat Review on GFL.tv

Sparta Combat League returned on GFL with "Heat", a stacked MMA card from the Douglas County Event Center in Castle Rock, Colorado. This event was full speed ahead from bell to bell as these pros and amateurs threw down in battle in the cage.

In the main event for the SCL Middleweight Title, Adam Stroup (6-1) defeated Jason Lee (7-5) via TKO in the second round to win the title.  Early on, both fighters showed a great technical level as they both threw great strikes and also had awesome defense as they checked kicks left and right and both continued to throw down for the fans.  The fight was a striking clinic as both men tried to take each other out with punches, kicks, and knees.  In the second, Lee pushed Stroup against the cage, but Stroup reversed the position and found his opening to end the fight.  Stroup used his size advantage to land some solid knees against the cage in while Lee tried to defend.  Multiple knees got through and dropped Lee.  Stroup followed Lee to the ground where he scored with ground and pound as Lee defended himself.  Lee got back to his feet but was hit with another knee to the head that dropped him a second time and Stroup finished the fight on the ground this time with more ground and pound. 

In other action, Alice Yauger (1-2) defeated Shannon Sinn (1-1) via unanimous decision.  Yauger continued to come forward and counter the striking of Sinn as it was almost dead even on the standup.  Sinn used good footwork and found her spots from a distance as she connected with hard leg kicks, and one-two combos.  Yauger would throw harder shots with not as much volume.  In the last round, Yauger seemed to seal the deal as she got a takedown and put Sinn on her back and controlled the ground decisively.  It was a solid win for Yauger who came into the fight as the underdog but gave a great performance as did Sinn. 

Josh “Hellboy” Huber defeated Joey Banks via TKO in a 145 lb Muay Thai battle.  The southpaw Huber connected with hard left hands right down the middle that hurt Banks throughout the fight.  Banks battled back and landed some overhand rights, but the volume punching of Huber was the difference.  Huber connected with combos and hard knees to the midsection.  Finally, as Banks started to get winded, Huber threw everything but the kitchen sink at him as Huber scored with lefts, rights, knees to the body and finally knees to the head that dropped Banks and put him away. 

Sparta Combat League brought down the house once again as they have quickly grabbed a chokehold on Mountain West MMA and this show continued in that tradition. Order "Heat" now and watch anytime on video on demand only on GFL.tv.

De Alba's popularity continues to grow and he excited to headline in a 10,000 seat Arena like The Santander.

"I feel blessed and humbled to be the headliner.  I trained very hard for this fight to please the fans.  I just want to thank everybody for their support.  I will put on a great show and fight my heart out like always", finished De Alba.
