Four-time collegiate All-American wrestler Gregor Gillespie puts his undefeated record on the line this Friday at ROC 50; however, he’s fought even bigger opponents outside the cage.

As Ring of Combat (ROC) nears its 50th event on Friday (Jan. 23, 2015), Gregor Gillespie prepares to take on his fourth opponent as a professional fighter. Competing at a high level isn’t new to Gillespie, as he’s a four-time NCAA All-American who compiled an impressive 152-13 record at Edinboro University.

2014 was a time for Ring of Combat middleweight Oluwale “Holy War Angel” Bamgbose to get his ducks in a row before making a big push towards the national stage.

“It was a year that I had to plan for the now, for 2015: finishing up school, taking care of my son, being consistent with MMA, and going after my dream of getting into the UFC,” Bamgbose told MMAWeekly.com. “It consisted of balancing all those things at once.

“It wasn’t easy, but with the help of God, I was able to juggle all those huge responsibilities.”

Since making the transition to MMA from wrestling, lightweight prospect Gregor Gillespie has been nothing short of dominant.

In his first three fights, Gillespie finished all his opponents in the first round; delivering on the promise he had shown prior to getting into MMA last year.

Mick Hammond, January 22, 2015, MMA Weekly

Following a stellar amateur career, bantamweight up-and-comer Julio Arce has made a successful transition to the professional ranks.

Over the course of his first six pro fights, Arce has remained undefeated and positioned himself on the cusp of bigger thing, especially after 2014.

“Last year was a major year because of the fact that I kept racking up the wins and I also got a mention in Fighter’s Only Magazine as a top prospect,” Arce told MMAWeekly.com. “I’m excited because it puts me one step closer knowing that they’re watching me and knowing my time will come eventually to step up into the high ranks.”

Gregor Gillespie’s path from wrestling, to rehab, to MMA redemption at ROC 50

Gregor Gillespie remembers a teammate’s almost flippant piece of encouragement one day in 2012 as he walked around with an IV pump in his backpack.

“You’re going to be back,” the teammate told him, as if he had even gotten there in the first place.

The truth was, he hadn’t fought yet. It was just that year that he had decided he was going to fight.

“That’s easy to say when you’re 10-1,” Gillespie (3-0), who tonight faces Justin Stewart (0-0) at Ring of Combat 50, told MMAjunkie. “When you’re 0-0, and you’re 26 years old, that’s tough.”

ROC 50 takes place at Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. The event streams live via online pay-per-view.
