Fury FC from Humble Texas features an excellent Bantamweight 135lb., title fight featuring Trent Meaux (4-1-1, 10-3-1 including amateur record) vs Ricky Turcos (7-0).
Once you dig into the specifics of this fight you can see how this easily could be the best fight of the entire weekend on GFL.tv. These 2 fighters are not only successful, they have been successful on much larger stages. Ricky Turcos has fought and won at both Legacy FC and at Bellator. Trent Meaux has fought 3 times at Legacy FC winning 2 of the 3 bouts, losing his first Legacy bout to a tough 5-0 Roberto Sanchez.
Both fighters have been fighting since mid- 2013. Though Meaux chose to start as an amateur, recording a 6-2 record, Turcos’ first fight was as a pro at Legacy FC 21. Turcos has fought to a decision on 4 of his 7 bouts, whilst Meaux has only gone the distance twice. Both fighters are technically solid. Meaux is an extremely tough and compact 135lbs., he actually looks much bigger when you watch film on him. He is an aggressive fighter looking for the quick finish, like the head kick he used to finish Garret Granger.
Ricky Turcos is on a clear trajectory to the UFC. He has fought quality opponents at high profile events, being featured in the main card of both Legacy FC and Bellator. Though Meaux will be a touch out for Turcos, he will be favored to win. If he continues to increase both his competition and win totals, it will be when, not if he will be called up to the UFC. Meaux is only a few steps behind, a quality and statement win over Turcos will go a long way to increasing his stock and gaining him much respect.
