GFL PRESENTS “STRIKE OFF FC 4” BEGINNING MARCH 16
March 13, 2015
GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as Strike Off FC presents another show stopper with Strike Off FC 4 featuring a full lineup of world class MMA from NOVA College in Annandale, Virginia. Strike Off FC has quickly established itself as a rising combat sports promotion in the Mid-Atlantic region.
In the main event, Billy Quarantillo (5-1) battles Khama Worthy (7-2) for the Strike Off FC Featherweight Championship. Quarantillo is a grappling specialist earning 4 wins via tapout. Quarantillo is an aggressive fighter who likes to push the pace and go for the finish early and often. Don’t be surprised if he goes for a takedown in the opening minute and tries to work his submission game on the ground. Quarantillo values submission over position and has a very active top game as well as guard and is just as dangerous off of his back as he is when he is working from side control or has the mount. Worthy is riding a 6-fight winning streak and has racked up 5 wins via TKO. Worthy brings KO power into the cage with both hands and can end a fight with a single punch. Look for Worthy to try and keep this fight standing as he can do substantially more damage in the striking aspect of MMA. This will be a contrast of styles and the winner will be able to impose his will on where he wants the fight to go.
In the co-main event, Elder Ramos (8-6) fights Bellator vet Derrick Kennington (7-6) for the Strike Off FC Welterweight Title. Ramos looks to add another title to his collection and has won 3 out of his last 4, to go along with 4 first round KOs on his record. He is the very definition of a quick starter. Look for Ramos to push the pace and immediately close the distance in the cage with his strikes. If the fight goes to the mat, expect Ramos to be active looking to scramble and improve his position whenever he can as he is also devastating on the ground. Kennington is a well-rounded fighter and his standup, particularly his Muay Thai, is punishing to his opponents. Kennington mixes up knees, kicks and punches very well to keep his opponent off balance. But it is his grappling that is most dangerous as he has scored submission victories in 5 of his wins.
The promotion’s third inaugural belt will be on the line as the Strike Off FC Flyweight Championship is at stake when the #1 ranked Flyweight in the region, Samir Farid, will be facing North Carolina’s Varon Webb. Still undefeated in his young career, Farid, 4-0, is coming off a spectacular come-from-behind win over Dennis Brown at Strike Off 2. Webb, 5-2, has fought in two previous title fights with NFC in Georgia, but just as Farid, has never made it into the championship rounds.
