The first thing that sticks out in terms of tantalizing match-ups is the pairing of Chris Wade and Frankie Perez. Wade is the current 155-pound champ, Perez is undefeated, and together they make for a bout that's going to have their respective extremely-sizable cheering sections going wild.
Also on the card are Brendan Barrett, Julio Arce, Andre Harrison and James Jenkins, each of whom are member of ROC's elite. Add to that mix red-hot up-and-comers Leo Muniz and Stephen Regman, and former NYFE champ Felipe Carlos, and you've got recipe for top regional cagefighting.
Here's what the card looks like in its entirety:
- Brendan Barrett vs. Justin Woods
- Chris Wade vs. Frankie Perez
- Matt Rizzo vs. Jimmy Grant
- Julio Arce vs. Justin Dalton
- Andre Harrison vs. Neil Johnson
- James Jenkins vs. Michael Pope
- Mike Andrillo vs. Mike Elshamy
- Amir Khan Visalimov vs. Pat DeFranco
- Felipe Carlos vs. Aaron Freedman
- Stephen Regman vs. Andre Shuler
- Steve Tyrrellvs vs. Randy Brown
- Gregor Gillespie vs. Brandon Priest
- Max Bohanan vs. Dan Corchado
- Leo Muniz vs. Merab Dvalishvili
- Blake King vs. Jose Villanueva
Like I said, take this lineup with a huge grain of salt since the event is months away, but at this stage, it's must-see mixed martial arts.
