Event: Syn 579 - Reclaiming Glory     
Date:   May 25, 2018

Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Serge Spectre (ranked 76 p4p, 14 weight class) and Gauthier St. Georges (ranked 191 p4p, 27 weight class). Spectre comes into the arena with For Heavy Metal we will die! blaring out of the sound system. St. Georges is bouncing up and down as he enters the arena, backed by Jiu Jitsu. Both these guys have really solid chins. Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
