Univision Studios in Miami is home to Combate Global and “La Jaula” has been the venue for sensational mixed martial arts for the past few weeks. Axel Osuna and Maximilliano Gomez came out strong last week, with Osuna scoring a second-round TKO. Now, Javier Reyes and Luis Gomez hope to follow in their footsteps as the headliners on Friday’s Combate Global fight card. Both featherweights are both veterans and regulars at Combate Global in recent years. You can stream the action live on Paramount+.
The Combate Global fight card will also feature Ernesto Ibarra (6-1) against Pablo Caballero (8-8) in a bantamweight bout that is expected to be quick. Jharely Reyes will also make his professional debut after making headlines by submitting a male fighter in just 22 seconds at the age of 17. She will face Melissa Gomez Espinoza, who will also be making her professional debut. The Combate Global fight card begins at 10:30 p.m. ET, and you can catch all the action live on Paramount+.

Combate Global’s top picks for the May 20 fight card
Before you tune in to Friday’s Combate Global fight card, you need to see the picks from SportsLine MMA insider Andrew Gombas. With over 1,400 caps tracked by third-party monitoring service Bet MMA, it has shown a 6% return on investment for its subscribers. Over the past two years, his followers have made a profit of over $10,000.
For Friday’s Combate Global fight card, Gombas picks Gomez to defeat Reyes. Reyes (13-3) is the hottest fighter and is on a three-fight winning streak, but he certainly hasn’t faced the level of competition that Gomez (9-5) has.
“Luiz Gomez picked up a win over UFC’s Sodiq Yusuff and competed with other UFC fighters, such as Chase Hooper and Herbert Burns. Javier Reyes is another tough opponent he will see this weekend Reyes has finished his last three fights by TKO or submission,” Gombas told SportsLine. “But I prefer Gomez to do it. I think he should have the tools to win a decision.”
