Upcoming Bouts to Look Out For II

Some more clarity on the upcoming Lyman Good bout: he’s fighting Ben Askren at a Bellator event on October 14th in Kansas City.  There was supposed to be a Bellator show in New Jersey (and it would’ve featured teen pop sensation Lester Caslow on the card somewhere), but that got nixed for whatever reason.  Also, keep an eye out for…

  • Jimmie Rivera vs. Abel Cullum, King of the Cage on September 17th The MGM Grand at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut is playing host to a King of the Cage event (remember them?), and fighting for a belt is TSMMA’s Jimmie Rivera and DREAM veteran Abel Cullum.  This will be by far Rivera’s toughest test yet, but with solid hands and a knack for turning into a statue whenever someone tries to take him down, he’s certainly got the tools to pull out the win.
  • Steve DeAngelis vs. Aguileno Brandao, King of the Cage on September 17th Steve DeAngelis may have fallen short against Nick Pace when the two fought for the ROC 135-pound title, but he’s still one of the best “little guys” the Northeast has to offer.  Watch for him to pound Aguileno Brandao into the canvas until there’s nothing left of Brandao but a smear that referee has to clean up with a sponge.
