Taking over the Lumiere Casino Theater in St. Louis, Mo this Saturday is the top promotion Shamrock FC. They will host their event NO MERCY which features a main event between Steve Mann and Aaron Cobb. In the co main event welterweight standout Jordan Dowdy faces Raymond Gray.Many fighters will be making their pro debut with two ammy titles on the line. It should be another action packed evening for the top mixed martial arts promotion in the St. Louis area.
Steve Mann (10-4) looks to get back on track after losing in his last offering for Bellator mma. The well rounded fighter and gifted finisher faces Aaron Cobb (6-3) in the main event. Cobb is 1-1 in his last two fights and went 5-2 in the previous seven. Both fighters have the ability to finish the fight on the mat so things will get real tricky depending on who gets the upper when this goes to the ground.
Jordan Dowdy (2-1) is regarded as one of the best prospects in the area and he too is hoping to return to the W column after a recent loss. His opponent will be the talented Raymond Gray (3-3) who is coming off two losses. In his last fight he went the distance with former UFC and Strikeforce competitor Bobby Voelker so this should be another pure test for Dowdy. Both fighters are strong and rangy with equal punching power and either will be looking for a finish. This fight could go either way and possibly go the distance.
Montrelle Prater (0-0) has been known around the ammy divisions for sometime here in the Midwest and is finally making the leap to pro. He will be welcomed by Brandon Lowe (0-1) who fell to the hands of the speedy Rashard Lovelace in his first pro fight for Bellator. Prater will try and summon that same skill but Lowe should be more than ready to handle whatever he brings his way. This fight should be a barn burner.
Kelly Burch and Marco Hutch are two well rounded ammys making their way into the pro ranks and will welcome each other at Shamrock FC “No Mercy”. Issac Purnell and Evan Elder are two ammys vying for the 155 amateur ttitle to kick off the main card which will be a great showcase for the two undefeated prospects.
