MMA Fight Series 4: Eddie Perez v Bob Gilmore Coming Up Tonight – Watch on GFL.tv
MMA Fight Series 4 will be headlined with a 170lb Championship Title Fight between two former training partners both on their quest for a championship! Honoring his fallen brother, Eddie Perez is a Latino from New York whose sister moved to Des Moines to get away from the rough lifestyle of The Bronx, New York back when Eddie was 18 years old seeking a better life. This welterweight championship fight is dedicated to Eddie’s little brother, Edmauel.
In November of last year Edmanuel fell victim of a cold blooded murder in downtown Des Moines at 3rd & court right outside the bars of the city’s popular nightlife district. “This fight is dedicated to Edmanuel” says Perez. “Words can not express the pain I go through not having him with me. This one is for you little bro, I’ll bring that belt as I promised you before you passed.” Eddie is a full time college student at NVCC in Waterbury Connecticut, and actively serves in the Army National Guard.
Perez will face off against the always tough fan-favorite brawler from Des Moines; Bob Gilmore. Gilmore is coming off of a 1st round submission victory at AFC 7 after absorbing a would-be fight ending spinning back kick full power to the body. Though it would not be enough to stop the tough as nails Gilmore from securing a takedown, getting his wind back, and eventually finding his way to locking up a heel hook at the end of the first round forcing a tap out earning him the submission victory.
