Dead Serious 19: Trevor McGovern v Tyler Bayer and Sean Monahan v Douglas LoBasso Headline a Steller Card
Trevor McGovern vs. Tyler Bayer – Dead Serious MMA 19
In my estimation, Trevor McGovern is the best fighter competing on GFL this weekend.
Even though McGovern began his MMA career at 29 years old, he has reeled off 10 victories alongside one decision loss in the last three years.
The Renzo Gracie product is a wizard on the mat, having finished nine of his opponents via submission.
McGovern may opt to never turn pro now that he is 32, but with the Light Heavyweight division so thin across MMA, he may reconsider with a win against Tyler Bayer this weekend.
Bayer boasts an impressive 6-1 record, but his most noteworthy characteristic is his legendary nickname “Man Bear Pig.”
Joking aside, Bayer is only 22 years old, and has shown some significant skills in his seven career fights.
With both men’s penchant for finishing their opponents, I wouldn’t blink once these two step into the cage.
Sean Monahan vs. Douglas LoBasso – Dead Serious MMA 19
Two amateur Welterweights will throw down in the main event of Dead Serious 19 this weekend, with the winner walking out of the cage as the new 170-pound champ.
Monahan is a Renzo Gracie product, boasting a 3-1 record, with three finishes, including a 27 second knockout in his MMA debut.
LoBasso is undefeated at 2-0, with his last victory coming via knockout. The New York native has fought only twice since his debut in late 2011, but a title victory in Dead Serious could be the springboard he needs to move into MMA full time.
Both fighters have shown flashes of brilliance inside the cage, and absolutely deserve the main event slot on Saturday.
Who takes the next step in their career?
