Is This Man The Next Big Prospect out of Team Serra/Longo?


I'm still finishing the write-up for Friday night's Combat at the Capitale kickboxing event in Manhattan (short report: it was good), but there was one thing noteworthy out of the affair that deserves its own post. In the co-main event, a Team Serra/Longo fighter took on an experienced kickboxer in Nike Tsigaris, and he did a clear and convincing job of kicking Tsigaris' ass.

That fighter was John Bowman, and according to trainer Ray Longo, who I spoke with afterwards, Bowman is a former Division I wrestler who they've been trying unsuccessfully to get an MMA bout for (according to he's only had two amateur MMA fights thus far).
