Main event

In the headliner, welterweight champion Joshua “The Preacher” Quayhagen (6-1) takes on lightweight champion Luiz “Pitbull” Rocha (7-2).

Rocha called out Quayhagen after winning his title by knockout against the previously undefeated Edgars Skrivers. Quayhagen agreed to put up a superfight.

Rocha came under the tutelage of the Freire brothers, Bellator champions, “Pitbull” in Natal, Brazil. He also trained in karate with Lyoto Machida. Quayhagen brings an American karate style to the conversation, which should lead to an interesting clash of styles.
