James Lang v Tyson Cobb
TGC Heavyweight Champion James “Clubber” Lang returns to defend his title, standing against him is the undefeated and the last KFC Heavyweight champion Tyson Cobb. With the unification on the line and both fighters fondness of Pugilism I predict nothing less than fireworks in our main event. Clubber has shown that he has the ability to adapt and on paper is the much more rounded grappler, perhaps he might attempt to take the fight to the ground and put his bjj purple belt to use and score a submission win. Young and hungry Cobb possesses world class boxing skills and I don’t see him straying from what has been working for him so far, which is knocking out every man that has been put in front of him.
Will Clubber retain his title and deal Cobb his first professional loss? Or will the challenger run through the champion?
Rudolf Kleinschmidt v Colby Barnes
In the Co-Main event TGC welterweight Champion Rudolf "Put You in a Pretzel" Kleinschmidt meets the challenger former welterweight Champion Colby Barnes who looks to begin his second reign. Kleinschmidt is a 100% certified submission artist, sporting a perfect unbeaten record of 8-0 all by submission. So far the champion has been able to stifle everyone with his grappling, but the challenger is confident that he can stop the takedown attempts and win the belt with his standup skills, with 6 of his 8 wins coming by knockout, but if he fails to score the knockout can he avoid the ground for 25 minutes?
Will Kleinschmidt retain his belt, or will Barnes wear gold once again?
Roger Rydell v Fentz Straterloo
In this exciting bantamweight clash, two fighters who want to climb closer to the title meet. Rydell has shown himself to be a crafty grappler ending the majority of his wins by sub, most recently Palaktingpuet Payakarakatong with a Kimura at TGC 30. Staterloo is a dangerous Kickboxer who is looking to keep this fight on feet and hit Rydell with big kicks. But you may never know maybe Rydell will attempt to prove a point with his stand up game.
Grappler vs striker who takes it?
Anthony Gilmore v Very Rounded
Two tough middleweights meet in our first fight of the evening and they look to set the pace for the night to come. Gilmore is a jack of all trades and has no glaring weaknesses, he has taken some losses but he is game and will never give up, Rounded shows the potential to be a crafty veteran and has recently added tow RNC wins to his resume. I see this fight being a full out war for 15 mins!
