Matt Doerflinger takes on Tyler Lowe at Cagezilla FC 8 in Silver Eagle Group in Ashburn, Virginia in a welterweight contest. The catch? This isn’t an actual MMA fight, but rather a Boonchu Cup style match, which is a type of fight invented by the great John Wayne Parr in Australia.
Basically, it’s a Muay Thai fight but with MMA gloves and it takes place in a cage instead of a ring. It’s the only non-MMA match on this list, but it’s a really interesting concept, and it should be a fun fight to watch.

Titan FC veteran Kenny Gaudreau returns to the cage for the first time since losing to veteran Micah Miller in Titan when the takes on journeyman Ralph Johnson in a welterweight bout at Fire & Ice FC 3, which takes place at Body Renew Fitness & Family Sports Center in Winchester, Virginia.<br><Br>
Both of these fighters often finish their fights or get finished themselves, which leads to a poor record but also exciting fights. Neither of these fighters is going to be making the UFC anytime soon, but both men are capable of putting on a fun fight for the fans, which is exactly what this fight is likely to be. Considering the way these two guys fight, it is very likely someone gets finished in the first round. <br><Br>

Robert Walker Jr. (4-3) vs. Joe Pegg (6-4) at IT Fight Series 45 Rated One of the Top 5 Fights of the Weekend to Watch – Live on GFL.Tv
Robert Walker Jr. (4-3) vs. Joe Pegg (6-4) at IT Fight Series 45 – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE
Two bantamweight prospects fight each other as Robert Walker Jr. takes on Joe Pegg at IT Fight Series 45, which goes down at Action Sports Center in Dayton, Ohio.
Walker has been a pro for nearly a decade but he has taken long stretches of absences during his career which is why he only has seven pro fights. He was recently supposed to fight Nick Pace in Ring of Combat but the fight was scrapped and when he takes on Pegg this weekend, it will be Walker’s first pro MMA fight in nearly four years.
Pegg, on the other hand, has been a pro for five years and was quickly moving up through the regional circuit bantamweight rankings until getting knocked out by Sergio Pettis in 2013. He has floundered since then and hasn’t been able to get on a win streak, but he has the potential to finish fights and that experience against Pettis will come in handy when the fights Walker.

Callum Gaghan (3-0) vs. Onur Caglar (1-1) at Almighty FC 2 – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE
Two prospects fight as Callum Gaghan takes on Onur Caglar in a lightweight fight at Almighty FC 2, which takes place at Leeds Town Hall in Leeds, England. Neither fighter has much in the way of professional experience, but both fighters have solid potential in the sport.
Since turning pro in 2015, Gaghan has went an impressive 3-0 with three finishes. He is well versed in both the ground and standup games, and trains out of the HAMMA Academy of MMA in Liverpool. He is a solid prospect and he’s just getting what could be a potentially very good career started.
As for Caglar, he’s 1-1 as a pro after having recently returned to the pro ranks following a multi-year absence, picking up a win via submission in his debut. He trains under UFC veteran Danny “The Cheesecake Assassin” Mitchell so expect him, like his coach, to go after all sorts of crazy submissions in this bout against Gaghan, a fight that is vital for both fighters to win at this point of their respective careers.

Combat Press Ranks Imortal FC 5’s Killys Mota (8-0) vs. João Carvalho (5-0) One of 3 Spotlighted Fights to Watch the Weekend – Live on GFL.Tv

Killys Mota (8-0) vs. João Carvalho (5-0)
Brazil’s regional circuit has a habit of producing fighters with eye-opening records. Imortal FC 5 features two fighters well on their way to creating impressive marks of their own. Killys Mota and João Carvalho are undefeated through a combined 13 fights, but only one of these fighters can emerge unscathed after their 161-pound catchweight fight.
Mota is the more experienced of the pair, but he’s also the smaller man. The 25-year-old has spent the majority of his career competing as a lightweight, but he has also dipped down to the featherweight division for at least one fight. The King Shark MMA export turned pro in 2013 and won four of his first five fights via strikes. The other fight in that stretch ended in a submission win for Mota. His three most recent fights have ended in submissions. Mota, who appeared on Imortal FC’s inaugural card and has also competed under the Aspera FC banner, has faced varying levels of competition. His most notable opponent is probably Alejandro Ezequiel “Uchimata” Coslovsky, an Argentine fighter with a current record of 7-3. Mota defeated Uchimata by submission in back-to-back fights separated by just 10 days.
Carvalho, who shares the same name as the Portuguese fighter who tragically died after a bout in Ireland, is a Brazilian upstart who also debuted in 2013. Whereas Mota is coming up from the lightweight division, Carvalho is dropping down from a career spent at welterweight. He won his first two fights by way of strikes. His next two contests went the distance, but Carvalho continued to emerge victorious. His most recent fight came against his toughest opponent yet, Victor Sckoteski. Carvalho disposed of the 7-2 fighter via strikes in the third stanza.

Wendell Oliveira (25-10) vs. Gilmar Manaus (26-14-1) at Immortal FC 5 – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE
Two-time UFC veteran Wendell Oliveira looks to get a second-straight win on the regional circuit when he takes on Gilmar Manaus in a welterweight bout at Immortal FC 5, which takes place at Max Rosenmann Sport and Leisure Center in Sao Jose dos Pinhais, Parana, Brazil.
Oliveira won 18 of 19 fights to get signed to the UFC, but he suffered two-straight knockout losses to Santiago Ponzinibbio and Darren Till and was cut. He then lost his first fight on the regional circuit to Antonio Trocoli, leading to a three-fight losing streak in the process, but bounced back with a knockout win over Paulo Henrique Teodoro de Oliveira, and another win over Manaus is necessary if he ever wants to make it back to UFC.
Manaus has fought many popular fighters out of Brazil during his career including the likes of former UFCers Iliarde Santos, Leandro Silva, Elias Silverio, Ronys Torres and Joao Zeferino but he’s been used more of a gatekeeper in his career. At 31, he’s finally put together a nice little two fight win streak and a win over Oliveira, a UFC veteran as well, might finally be what he needs to get called up to the big show.
With Oliveira owning 10 stoppage wins in his career and Manaus holding 19 finishes himself, there is a good chance someone gets a victory in this fight in devastating fashion and possibly gets a shot in the UFC on a Brazil card later this year.
Joel De La Paz to an exclusive multi-year promotional contract.
“I feel really great to be working with Star Boxing”, said De La Paz. “Joe DeGuardia has many championship fighters. I look forward to working hard and in a few years I want to fight for a world title.”
Star Boxing’s President, Joe DeGuardia said “I’m delighted to have Joel sign with us. Joel is an exciting fighter who is ready to step his game up in a big way. His fan friendly, aggressive style will shake things up in the already stacked 168 lbs. division. We are all looking forward to a bright future together.”
De La Paz of Atlantic City, NJ has a record of 7-0 with 4 knockouts. Impressively, the super middleweight has not lost a single round as a professional. The proud Puerto Rican looks to continue his country’s tradition of producing dominant world champions. Joel will take the first step in his long awaited return to action when he takes on the rugged Naim Terbunja (8-1) on the undercard of the Delvin Rodriguez vs. Shawn Cameron headliner at “Slugfest at the Sun” at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Saturday July 23, 2016. Terbunja is also promoted by Star Boxing.
The additions of De La Paz to the Star Boxing roster mark four promising prospects signed in the last couple of months. Tyrone James, Terrell Bostic and Michael Stoute joined the promotional powerhouse earlier this year and have all competed at the Paramount in Huntington, NY in their first fights under the Star Boxing banner.
Star Boxing returns to Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on, Saturday, July 23rd for the highly anticipated return of Connecticut’s favorite son at the Sun. The summer bash, Slugfest at the Sun, will feature an exciting night of action beginning at 7:30pm.
Former USBA Welterweight Champion and multi world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez (28-8-4 16KO Danbury, CT), returns to the ring taking on Iraqi war veteran Shawn Cameron (10-1 5KO Bronx, NY) in a 10 round Jr. Middleweight contest.
Rodriguez, who last fought in June 2015, challenged Erislandy Lara for the WBA World Jr. Middleweight title that night, dropping a 12 round decision to the champion.
Rodriguez has fought a who’s who over the course of his long career including such elite fighters as Miguel Cotto, the aforementioned Lara, and Austin Trout, but may be best remembered for his scintillating battle with Pawel Wolak on July 15, 2011, which garnered ‘Fight of the Year” award.
Rodriguez has challenged for the world championship on 3 different occasions and feels he still has something left to prove taking on the hungry and tough, Shawn Cameron.
Cameron, who has just 11 fights under his belt, sees this as the opportunity he has been waiting for. Cameron served 2 tours of duty in Iraq and knows a win over a well-known contender like Delvin Rodriguez will do wonders for his career.
