Jimmie Rivera Defends his ROC Bantamweight Championship This Friday

Preview by GoFightlive.com

Jimmie Rivera (9-1) vs Joel Roberts (8-3)

Ring of Combat returns September 14 with “Ring of Combat XLII” at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey or streaming on iPPV through the GFL Combat Sports Network. 4 titles are on the line as ROC continues to be the linchpin of East Coast MMA and this 15-bout, card reiterates its dominance as the top dog in the Tri-State area.

ROC Bantamweight Champion Jimmie Rivera (9-1) takes on Joel Roberts (8-3) in yet another title fight. Rivera, a Bellator and TUF vet has faced a who’s who of the East Coast’s best and will look to utilize his strong wrestling base to nullify Robert’s attacks. Roberts, also a Bellator veteran, is on a 5-fight win streak winning all by submission and is a champion with another organization. This 135 lb fight will decide who the top dog is on the East Coast in the Bantamweight division and probably be fight of the night.

If you can’t make it to Friday’s Ring of Combat event, you can still watch Ring of Combat XLII online for $14.99, here is the link –   http://www.gfl.tv/Events/Fight/MMA/Ring_of_Combat_XLII/1597
