GPG 19 Preview
Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MMA/GPG-19-Portugal-vs-USA/2777
Hard hitting MMA action returns on March 28 as GPG present “Global Proving Ground 19” from the GPG Event Center in Pennsauken, New Jersey on the GFL Combat Sports Network. 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, Bellator and WSOF vet Sidney Outlaw (3-1) battles Elder Ramos (8-7). Outlaw suffered his first loss in his last fight and looks to rebound against the gritty Ramos. Outlaw brings KO power into the cage with both hands and can end a fight with a single punch. Look for Outlaw to try and keep this fight standing as he has great boxing with pinpoint accuracy. Ramos looks to add another title to his collection and has won 3 out of his last 5, 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.
In other action, Tim Dooling (0-1) fights Darnell Murphy (1-0). Dooling will need to keep his combos sharp as that is where he found success as an amateur going (6-2) and winning a title. Dooling will need to also close the distance quickly if he goes for takedowns because Murphy has very solid takedown defense. Murphy loves to bang and his first win came via TKO in the second round. Murphy is an athletic lightweight who is big for the division and takes advantage of his opponent’s mistakes, especially on the ground. If Murphy is not doing well in the standup, look for him to try and get the fight to the mat and work for one of his favorite submissions, the rear naked choke.
The heavyweights clash when Chris Daukaus (1-1) takes on Jordan Mitchell (3-4). Daukaus fights with a high risk-high reward style of fighting. Both of his fights have ended in the first round, via KO or TKO. Look for fists of fury to be flying with Daukaus. Mitchell mirrors the fighting style of Daukaus who has all 3 wins via KO or TKO. Look for Mitchell to come out like a Mack truck, swinging for the fences. This fight has KO of the Night, written all over it.
