Full Contact Contender (FCC) 17: Rob ‘C4’ Sinclair v Charlie Leary – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE!

MMAmania.com has rated this FCC match up as the top regional fight to watch this weekend and its live on GFL.Tv.

Rob ‘C4’ Sinclair (13-3) returns to the ring after a 15 month layoff as he challenges current FCC Lightweight Champion Charlie Leary (12-7) in what is guaranteed to be an explosive contest.

Sinclair has been absent from competition spanning back to June 2015. However, ‘C4’ brings a wealth of experience to the cage. The former BAMMA Lightweight Champion has faced a who’s who of UKMMA talent and was signed to Bellator before a string of horrendous injuries sidelined him. Sinclair thanked Leary for taking the fight, though he let Leary know that it was also a big mistake, stating, “I want to thank Charlie for taking the fight. He could of ducked it and maybe taken an easier fight!! Balls to the kid, he’s kept me out of retirement, he’s given me a fire to look to train, enjoy training.. I know what I’m capable of.. And I’ll be showing it come fight night, 24th September is a bad night for Charlie Leary!!

Reigning and defending FCC Lightweight Champion Charlie Leary is coming off an impressive title defense over Mick Bowman and is looking for his fifth straight win. Leary is understandably excited for this fight: “this is huge in my mind! Rob Sinclair has been the number one guy in Europe since I turned pro; and FCC are right up there as one of the top three promotions in the UK so having their title is a great achievement! But, defending it means everything to me and is a massive step in my career especially given my opponent!”

For UKMMA fans this contest is guaranteed to deliver as neither man will take a backwards step. Couple that with Sinclair’s desire to prove his time isn’t up while Leary wants to show it is his time now!

GFL.Tv is showcasing 10 promotions this weekend. Check out the action. Until next week, keep punchin’.

Top 6 – Number 3: X1 Returns: Cooper vs. Conn

X1 44 (X1 Returns) Ray Cooper III v. Zach Conn

X1 44 “RETURNS” marks the first time X1 has been back to the Blaisdell since 2011 when Max Holloway won the X1 lightweight championship.  The X1 44 card showcases some of Hawaii’s best, and upcoming, mixed martial arts fighters. The main event features Lolohea Mahe taking on Trent Standing in a Super Heavyweight bout. This fight will be quick and violent, so if you have a nervous stomach turn the channel until this one is over – probably in the 1st round. Neither fighter has ever gone the distance and most bouts in which they have competed have not made it out of the 1st round.  All of Mahe and all but 2 of Standing’s fights have ended by TKO via punches or strikes. Neither fighter likes to fight on the ground so put ’em up and let ‘em go.  Look for this fight to be one of GFL’s Top 5 Finishes next week.

 

A bout that may be of more interest to MMA fans would be Ray Cooper III (9-3) v Zach Conn. Ray Cooper III from Waianae, Hawaii has finished his last 6 opponents, 4 by knock out, and has not lost since November 2014.  He recently traveled to California to face Joshua Drake, winning the Gladiator Challenge Lightweight Title.  Cooper is on an Island that has seen some of the best MMA fighters compete in the past and he seems to be ready to take up the gauntlet to continue the tradition. He is ranked the No. 1 pro lightweight in Hawaii.

 

At first glance his opponent Zach Conn may not seem like much of a threat.  Though his record is 5-5, he has won 4 of his last 5 bouts, that loss being a split decision loss to an undefeated Tyler McGuire on McGuire’s home turf.  Conn has had to rebuild his career after a dismal 1-4 start.  A win against Cooper would not only give him his first winning record as a pro it would springboard him in the eyes of many organizations.

Warriors Cup 28: NJ Mac v Rob Gonzales – Live on GFL.Tv

Warriors Cup 28: NJ Mac v Rob Gonzales – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE

In the headline bout NJ Mac takes on Rob Gonzales for the Interim 147lb USMTA / WC Title, with the winner meeting the 147lb Champ Chanon Kuldraree in their next bout. These 2 fighters are both experienced Muay Thai fighters, though they have contrasting styles. NJ Mac has impressive footwork and mobility which he will need in defending the aggressive attacking style of his opponent, Rob Gonzales.

These two fighters come from competing schools, which ads to the rivalry and interest in this bout. Rob Gonzales trains at The Wat in Downtown NYC, whilst NJ Mac trains at Rebel Thaiboxing on Long Island. Full Rules Muay Thai requires a physical and mental discipline unlike other combat sports as the risk of injury is great. The sport is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet. I have seen a spinning elbow that was so fast that at 60 frames per second the camera did not capture the contact between the elbow and the fighters chin. This fight has the making of a great battle between two experience and disciplined fighters.

Bout of Note: Another fight of note is the Womans’ USMTA title fight between defending champion Raquel Harris against Nicole Richiusa. Raquel had cleaned house in the 105lb division beating many of the best females in this weight class. Nicole comes as a legit contender looking to dethrone Raquel for her USMTA title.

Sparta Combat League 52: Chaos – Lipp vs Jones – Live on GFL.Tv

Sparta Combat League 53: Caged Chaos: Josh Huber v. Ben Lugo-CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE

Huber has been fighting since 2006 with a professional record of 18-10, having fought in many high level fights at WSOF, Victory FC, Titan FC and RFA. His last win was in April 2016 at WSOF 29 against Clay Wimer who was 6-0 at the time and thought to be a rising star. Even in his last few losses he has gone the distance only to lose in close decisions. At 31 he has fought through many rounds of MMA coming, being victorious in 2 out of every 3 fights. This has kept him in the picture for the past few years but has delayed if not eliminated his shot to fight at the highest level of the sport.

Ben Lugo is 1-0 as a pro, having had an extensive amateur career since 2013 in which he fought 16 times in less than 3 years. He launched his pro career in April of this year by beating Randy Rowland who was then 1-0. Lugo has not fought to a decision since March 2014, having knocked out several opponents and having submitted and been submitted on other occasions whilst he honed his skills as an amateur.

Huber is Lugo’s most experience opponent to date. Not only does Huber have experience having fought 28 times as a pro to Lugo’s 1 pro fight, he has gone the distance in 4 of his last 6 bouts. Though he may not be a KO threat he has submitted his opponent via Rear Naked Choke in 3 of his last 5 wins. Lugo has youth on his side being 5 years younger than Huber, as well as a slight reach advantage. He is equally adept on the ground as Huber, as both fighters having finished many opponents via rear naked choke. Lugo also has shown the power to finish the fight quickly. If the fight goes into the later rounds it will be hard for Lugo to get the win, however, expect Lugo to press the action early and look for the KO.

Warrior Fighting Championship “Caged Chaos”: Joseph Maness v Brandon Bell – Live on GFL.Tv

Warrior Fighting Championship “Caged Chaos”: Joseph Maness v Brandon Bell-CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE

Warrior FC “Caged Chaos” takes place this Saturday at the Harlan Center pitting undefeated Nathan Maness (6-0, 10-0, including amateur record) from North Carolina against hometown Kentucky fighter Brandon Bell for the Warrior FC Lightweight Title.

This bout may seem lopsided but it is far from that. Maness is coming off a tough shoulder injury that he incurred in January and has not been in the cage for almost a year. Additionally Maness is climbing 2 weight classes to fight at lightweight having gone from 135lbs to 155 lbs for the contest. Brandon Bell (4-5) is basically fighting in his backyard and has won three of his last five fights, his last win a first round TKO over Shane Robinson. Though he lost the Lightweight Title to a retiring Matt Metts via decision this past April, he is know to be a tough, strong fighter having never been knocked out.

All said Maness is still the favorite in this bout. He was ranked as the No. 1 pro bantamweight in the Southeast, and had already decided to step in weight well before this bout. In 10 bouts (6 as a pro) since 2013 he has never lost, having finished 5 or 50% of his opponents. His last fight was in 2015 at Coliseum Combat XXXIII, when he knocked out Michael Ricketts with one of the best shots of the year. He also holds wins over other notable fighters, Isaiah Ferguson and Jeremy Pender.

The tale of the tape also seems to be in Maness’ favor as he has youth (25 years to Bell’s 31 years), height and reach advantages. If Maness can quell the hometown crowd and if his shoulder is full healed he should come away with the victory, though do not expect a 1st round finish.
