Ring of Combat Starts 2016 With A Bang As Gregor Gillespie and Julio Arce Return To Complete An All-Star MMA Lineup With Four Title Fights. <br><Br>

The main event has the return of New York’s Gregor “The Gift” Gillespie (5-0) defending his regional ROC lightweight title against undefeated Jose Mariscal (3-0) of Illinois. Gillespie, who has some of the best wrestling credentials in all of MMA, was set to defend his title this past November but had to pull out due to injury. <br><Br>
Mariscal, who made his ROC debut this past November, made quite the impression as he earned a hard fought decision over previously undefeated Max Bohanan. <br><Br>

In the co-main event, Brian Kelleher (15-7) looks looks for his second win in a rematch against the man he won the title from, Julio Arce (8-1). Kelleher met Arce at ROC 52 in what was a face paced bout earning a majority decision over the former champion. Arce looks to even up the score and win back his title in the process.<br><Br>

Fresh off his title winning performance, Bradley Desir (7-4) of Tiger Schulman’s MMA looks to successfully defend his national lightweight title in a rematch against Eddie Lenoci (4-1) of the Serra/Longo fight team.<br><Br>

Riding a six-fight win streak, ROC national featherweight champion, Mike Santiago (16-9) defends his title against New Jersey’s Lester Caslow (15-9).<br><Br>
