ShoFIGHT returns to GFL on April 4 with championship MMA with “Rising” from the Branson Central Theater in Branson, Missouri. ShoFIGHT has made its mark with MMA fans as being a launching point for tons of fighters and top prospects in the Mid-South. Who will stand out, once the cage door closes?

In the main event, for the vacant ShoFIGHT Lightweight Title, Devon Webber (6-2) fights Ross Campbell (9-1). Webber is a versatile fighter who can win on the ground or in the standup. Webber is a powerhouse from Kansas and is looking at this fight to be his coming out party by giving Campbell his first loss via stoppage. 4 of Webber’s wins are via stoppage. Campbell is well-rounded and submitted 5 opponents, while KOing 4 others. Campbell can end a fight in the blink of an eye and is always looking for a KO or submission if the fight hits the mat. Look for both men to try out their striking in the early going to get a rhythm as both of these fighters like to set the pace.

In the co-main event, Brian Ramirez (5-2) takes on James Gerkey (5-1). Former ShoFIGHT champion, Gerkey has quickly made a name for himself as one of the top 125 lb fighters in the region. Gerkey has KO power in both hands and can end a fight with one punch. Gerkey has stopped 4 opponents and looks to do that once again in this fight. Ramirez is a quick starter and loves to mix it up right from the get-go. His last 3 fights, all wins, have come in the first round.

In other action, the ShoFIGHT Featherweight Title in on the line when Champion Adam Mink (2-0) battles Alex Rykhyla (1-0). Mink has fought in a title fight every time he has stepped into the cage and proven his meddle by coming away with 2 finishes, 1 via TKO and 1 via submission. Mink is a rising prospect in the Mid-South and looks to finish another fighter in impressive fashion. Rykhyla has a first round submission to his credit and will be more than happy to go hold for hold with Mink on the mat. Expect a chess match in this title fight.
