Combat Global is back. With a new scoring system that lets fans, fighters and coaches see the judge’s score after every round, one of the most exciting fight promotions in the world is only going to get more entertaining. The new season begins with a seven-fight, Mexico-themed Combate Global fight card against the United States. The headliner will be Daniel Sanchez (3-1) against Angel Alvarez (4-0) in a lightweight bout. It’s expected to be an uphill battle and you can stream the action live on Paramount+.
This season, Combate Global will move to an open scoring system, which will let the public, fighters, and their respective corners know how the three judges are scoring the fight after each round. Other fights on the main card include Melissa Amaya (2-0) against Yessica Ortega (1-1) and Ruben Lozano (9-5) against Jimmy Sandlin (4-4). The Combate Global fight card begins at 10:30 p.m. ET, and you can catch all the action live on Paramount+.

Combate Global picks for March 24 fight card
Before you tune in to Thursday’s 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 Thursday’s Combate Global fight card, Gombas picks Lozano to defeat Sandlin in a 158-pound bout. “El Diamante” fights in Monterrey, Mexico and has shown impressive power throughout his career, with seven of his nine wins by KO/TKO.
Meanwhile, Sandlin recently fought as a boxer earlier this month, losing a unanimous decision to Mirady Lubanzadio. Sandlin also lost his last two Combate Global appearances before that, losing by an armbar from Samuel Alvarez in the first round of the Nov. 12 Combate Global card and dropping a split decision to Carlos Arana on the Aug. 1 card.
Sandlin hasn’t been knocked out in his career, so Lozano will have to avoid chasing the knockout. However, he seems to be the most complete fighter. With Sandlin having only knocked out one opponent so far, Lozano should be emboldened to be more forward and take control of the fight on Thursday.
