Cortavious Romious vs Erion Zekthi
Kevin Engel facing Kyle Kurtz is a premier match up in the midwest professional region. Kurtz is coming off two Bellator wins and this fight was supposed to happen back at the November 6th event. Engel will be the next athlete from Finney’s MMA camp to take on Kurtz as he has faced three of his teammates. Anytime Kurtz is involved look out for slick transitions and submission attacks on the ground. With Kevin being no slouch in that department things can get interesting fast. It should make for a great main event to cap off the night.
Garret Gross mixing it up with Rashard Lovelace is one of the best fights listed on the card. The explosive Lovelace will have to strike early and hard against the gritty and well rounded Gross. Matt Helm verses Tyler Clausen is an intriguing fight as Clausen has looked better as of late as Helm looks to get back on track. The featherweight amatuer title will give one fighter a professional contract with the Shamrock FC Promotion. Potential FOTN with two amateurs that are just as good as the pros on the main card. Cortavious Romious exploded on the map after a vicicious KO in 2015. He was already a surging 145er on a three fight streak and is now ready to win one more and go on to the pro ranks as a highly touted prospect. Standing in his way is one of the more well rounded fighters in the area in Erion Zekthi. The Albanian young man is also a very confident fighter who feels he has the tools to stop the Romious hype. There is tons at stake for both ammy titles so expect a night filled with thrilling finishes and results.
