GFL PRESENTS “GPG 18” BEGINNING MARCH 9
March 7, 2015
GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as Global Proving Ground presents another show stopper with GPG 18 featuring a full lineup of world class MMA from the GPG Event Center in Pennsauken, New Jersey.GPG has quickly established itself as a rising combat sports promotion on the East Coast and this event further cemented their credibility within the region.
In the main event, Brandon Wheeler battles Anthony Dill. Both of these fighters have their backs against the wall and are looking to climb up the ladder in GPG. A victory here will do that for one of them. Wheeler is an aggressive fighter who always pushes the pace and tries to get his opponent to make a tactical mistake. Wheeler has a very underrated submission game and might look to get this fight to the ground early. If Dill stumbles, will Wheeler be in the right place to finish the fight? Dill is a great standup fighter and loves to throw combos from a variety of angles. Dill will look to keep the fight standing and finish Wheeler off with a KO.
In the co-main event, Peter Petties fights Brandon Pennington. Both Petties and Pennington are very young in the sport and are matched up in a battle of two highly touted prospects. Petties has great counter punching, while Pennington is known for throwing hard leg kicks. This should be a nice standup battle as both men are looking for a highlight reel knockout.
