Spotlight Fight:
Killys Mota (8-0) vs. João Carvalho (5-0)

Brazil’s regional circuit has a habit of producing fighters with eye-opening records. Imortal FC 5 features two fighters well on their way to creating impressive marks of their own. Killys Mota and João Carvalho are undefeated through a combined 13 fights, but only one of these fighters can emerge unscathed after their 161-pound catchweight fight.

Mota is the more experienced of the pair, but he’s also the smaller man. The 25-year-old has spent the majority of his career competing as a lightweight, but he has also dipped down to the featherweight division for at least one fight. The King Shark MMA export turned pro in 2013 and won four of his first five fights via strikes. The other fight in that stretch ended in a submission win for Mota. His three most recent fights have ended in submissions. Mota, who appeared on Imortal FC’s inaugural card and has also competed under the Aspera FC banner, has faced varying levels of competition. His most notable opponent is probably Alejandro Ezequiel “Uchimata” Coslovsky, an Argentine fighter with a current record of 7-3. Mota defeated Uchimata by submission in back-to-back fights separated by just 10 days.

Carvalho, who shares the same name as the Portuguese fighter who tragically died after a bout in Ireland, is a Brazilian upstart who also debuted in 2013. Whereas Mota is coming up from the lightweight division, Carvalho is dropping down from a career spent at welterweight. He won his first two fights by way of strikes. His next two contests went the distance, but Carvalho continued to emerge victorious. His most recent fight came against his toughest opponent yet, Victor Sckoteski. Carvalho disposed of the 7-2 fighter via strikes in the third stanza.

MMAMANIA.COM Rates Dustin Brooks vs. Ken Pizzi- Extreme Cage Fighting (EFC) 10 as One of Top 5 Fights of the Weekend To Watch – Live on GFL.Tv

Dustin Brooks vs. Ken Pizzi- Extreme Cage Fighting 10

The Extreme Cage Fighting light heavyweight championship is on the line as Dustin Brooks takes on Ken Pizzi for what may be a one sided match.

The demonstrative Brooks has a fight record of 8-2 and has been putting on a clinic ever since he’s hit the MMA scene. After winning his last two bouts with submission tactics it’s safe to assume that Brooks will be looking to do the same to Pizzi. The champion is working with house money since he has both the weight advantage and experience level working for him.

Ken Pizzi may be a dead man walking this weekend. This will be his first fight ever in a MMA ring so the odds are highly stacked against him. Who knows though, its quite possible Pizzi may walk away with an upset and change the landscape of the promotion. Does he have what it takes to be the next ECF light heavyweight champion?

The Bout Card includes:

Charles Cheeks III vs. Justin Reiswerg- Fury Fighting Championship – Picked by MMAmania.com as One of Top Fights of the Week

Charles Cheeks III vs. Justin Reiswerg- Fury Fighting Championship

Check out the MMAmania.com article. Fury FC 11 – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE

The Fury FC Lightweight Championship title match will features two skillful fighters who are looking to hit pay dirt.

Charles Cheeks III is looking to put a show after his last 2 bouts ended in unanimous decision. In this stage of his career it’s important for Cheeks to want to distinguish himself from the crowd. What better way to do that then to walk out of the Civic Center in Humble, Texas as champion?

In the other hand Reiswerg is on the right path. After coming off a convincing win a couple months back, via submission, Reiswerg is on the hunt to add gold around his waist. With the height and weight advantage working for him, I would venture a guess and say Reiswerg is the overall favorite to win this match.

I hope the folks in Texas are aware of what’s headed their way.

Brian Kerr vs. Davis Crowe – Warrior Fighting Championship – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE

The Warrior FC Lightweight Championship title is on the line as Brian Kerr takes on David Crowe in a highly anticipated battle between hometown favorites.

Kerr is looking to redeem himself after being submitted in his last bout, and has a great opportunity to do so with a championship victory. Coming into the fight with both the height and weight advantage, Kerr could prove to be a difficult puzzle for Crowe to solve.

Strangely enough, Crowe is also coming off a loss, and yet has been gifted the opportunity to fight for gold as well. Crowe is the heavy underdog but if he finds a way to walk out of the Kentucky Kings Mountain Memorial Center as a champion, there will be no stopping his momentum.

I hope the folks in Kentucky are ready for a war.

Kayla Stricker vs. Trisha Cicero – XFN 9 Is the Top Fight of the Weekend RE: MMAmania.com

Kayla Stricker vs. Trisha Cicero – XFN 9- CLICK HERE TO WATCH

If you have yet to hear Trisha Cicero’s name, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon.

The XFN Flyweight champ is among the most talented women’s fighters outside the UFC today, and it seems to be only a matter of time before she gets a shot in the big leagues.

Cicero has been dominating the XFN competition as of late, securing a 3-0 record and earning herself championship gold.

Standing in Cicero’s way this weekend will be the durable Kayla Stricker.

“The Bulldog” has more experience than the champ, boasting a 5-1 amateur record, including two finishes.

Fighting out of Mississippi, Stricker is a firecracker inside the cage. In her previous bouts, it seems Stricker’s opponents underestimated her due to her size, but she has proven to be a tough out for even the toughest competitors.

In terms of amateur fights, this is just about the best match up fight fans could ask for, pitting two legitimate MMA talents against each other early on in their careers.

GFL preview: Top 5 fights to watch on Go Fight Live this weekend

No Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) or Bellator this weekend? No problem!

GoFightLive.tv has a great slate of action from the regional scene this weekend, featuring some very intriguing UFC prospects, and a ton of highly anticipated bouts.

Once again, as a gift to MMAmania readers, GFL is offering 20% off any event using the exclusive coupon code GFLMania.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the top five fights to watch on GFL this week:

5. Brian Kerr vs. Davis Crowe – Warrior Fighting Championship

The Warrior FC Lightweight Championship title is on the line as Brian Kerr takes on David Crowe in a highly anticipated battle between hometown favorites.

Kerr is looking to redeem himself after being submitted in his last bout, and has a great opportunity to do so with a championship victory. Coming into the fight with both the height and weight advantage, Kerr could prove to be a difficult puzzle for Crowe to solve.

Strangely enough, Crowe is also coming off a loss, and yet has been gifted the opportunity to fight for gold as well. Crowe is the heavy underdog but if he finds a way to walk out of the Kentucky Kings Mountain Memorial Center as a champion, there will be no stopping his momentum.

I hope the folks in Kentucky are ready for a war.

4. Richard Gates vs. Mervin Rodriguez – PA Cage Fight 24

In a battle between two strikers, expect fireworks at PA Cage Fight 24.

Lightweight competitor Richard Gates has been on a role since hitting the MMA scene. Boasting a 3-1 record, Gates has won his last three bouts convincingly, knocking each man out in brutal fashion.

Fight fans can expect Gates to be looking for the home run early and often, but Mervin Rodriguez is no slouch on the feet.

Point blank, Rodriguez does have quite the challenge in front of him, as Gates is a UFC caliber prospect, but he does have the tools to win this fight.

The main issue for Rodriguez could very well be ring rust, as he has been out of action for over a year. “Marvelous” is also stepping up a weight class to battle the heavy-handed Gates, so the cards really are stacked against him.

Still, five career finishes is nothing to scoff at, and Rodriguez is looking to make a major statement this weekend.

3. John DeVall vs. Kevin Gray – Dynasty Combat Sports 26

Dynasty Combat Sports 26 promises to be a great show, and with John DeVall and Kevin Gray set to battle for the Flyweight title in the main event of the evening, you can expect a high-paced fight.

DeVall is looking to add another piece of gold hardware to his mantelpiece, but getting through a very tough Gray will be a difficult task.

DeVall has ton of experience under his belt, but his 11-8 record is far from jaw dropping. The truth is, DeVall is a fighter who is always looking for the finish, which often puts him at risk against his opponents.

If DeVall plays that game against Gray, he could be the victim of a brutal knockout.

After winning his last two bouts via unanimous decision, expect Gray to look to make a statement with a finish victory. Sure the Flyweight championship can be won via decision, but Gray is ready to finish the fight within the distance.

This fight has all the makings of an instant classic.

2. Zak “The Barbarian” Ottow vs. Craig Eckelberg – Pure Fighting Championship 4

This will be a battle of style and flare.

Zak Ottow is walking into the Panther Arena in Wisconsin with an impressive record of 12-3, and three straight submission victories. Out of his three career losses, two came against UFC veterans in Jacob Volkmann and Mike Rhodes.

In his last seven fights, Ottow is 6-1 with six finishes. A win over Eckelberg could be his golden ticket to UFC.

Craig Eckelberg isn’t a stepping-stone for anyone, and should be a great challenge for Ottow this weekend. Hailing from the lauded Roufusport, Eckelberg is looking to represent the world-renowned gym by winning in convincing fashion.

With a 6-1 record, Eckelberg is a noted BJJ specialist with four victories via submission.

If this fight hits the mat, expect some wildly entertaining grappling exchanges.

1. Kayla Stricker vs. Trisha Cicero – XFN 9

If you have yet to hear Trisha Cicero’s name, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon.

The XFN Flyweight champ is among the most talented women’s fighters outside the UFC today, and it seems to be only a matter of time before she gets a shot in the big leagues.

Cicero has been dominating the XFN competition as of late, securing a 3-0 record and earning herself championship gold.

Standing in Cicero’s way this weekend will be the durable Kayla Stricker.

“The Bulldog” has more experience than the champ, boasting a 5-1 amateur record, including two finishes.

Fighting out of Mississippi, Stricker is a firecracker inside the cage. In her previous bouts, it seems Stricker’s opponents underestimated her due to her size, but she has proven to be a tough out for even the toughest competitors.
