The main event for the evening features FIT NHB’s Sherwin “The Genius” Price (5-0) defending his KOTC World Jr. Welterweight Title (160-pounds) against fellow undefeated fighter, Nick “The Italian Stallion” Angeloni (3-0). Price has been a rising prospect amidst the ranks of New Mexico martial artists and will put his unblemished record to the test against the Alliance MMA trained athlete.
In the co-main event, Derek Perez of Belen’s Perez Fighting Systems will look to capitalize on his successful 2018 that has included capturing a bare-knuckle fighting title as well as notching a win over a prominent boxing prospect on less than-a-day notice. Perez will battle Nikko Nathan of Force of 1 Martial Arts in Clovis, NM. The bout will be contested in the 155-pound lightweight division.
Derek’s brother, Gene Perez will battle Santa Fe’s Joshua “The Destoya” Montoya in a 135-pound tilt that will pit two veterans of New Mexico combat sports against the other in a stylistic clash between grappler vs. striker.
The fourth feature fight matches FIT NHB’s Turrell “Freakstrong” Galloway Marc TonVan which is to be competed in the 125-pound weight class.
Other fighters advertised for the event include: Charlie Williams, Terry Taylor, Evan DeLong, Luiz Gavinho, Bill Albrecht, Jon Sparks, Ozzy Chavez, Sarina Ochoa, Meaghan Penning, Francisco Dominguez, Chris Rojas, Kemoy Anderson, Sterling Peak, Nathan Torrez, Thomas Horton, Andre Mitchell, Jerry Gutierrez, Dominic Yara, Ty Miller, Billy Ray Valdez and Austin Lewis.
