Nassau Coliseum, NY
Shane Burgos (TSMMA) vs Godofredo Pepey -145lbs
Burgos wins unanimous decision
Burgos kicked off the day for Team Tiger Schulmann’s with a complete performance against Pepey. Burgos brought the crowd to their feet early and often in the fight repeatedly dropping his opponent, highlighted by a knee kick in the 1st and a brutal body shot in the 3rd round. Burgos did everything in his power to finish the fight and was very close to, as time expired in the 3rd round. Pepey showed tremendous heart in refusing to quit or be finished, but this contest was all about “Hurricane Shane” putting on a show for the Tiger Schulmann’s faithful with a dominating performance. We hope to see Shane now ranked in the top 15 with this blistering performance.
Lyman Good (TSMMA) vs Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos -170lbs
Zaleski dos Santos wins via split decision
Good vs Zaleski earned “Fight of the Night” honors for the reason. Their back & forth stand up war was everything the fans were hoping to see. Both men were dialed in from the start and they continued their frenetic pace for the entire 3 round, 15 minute contest. Good and Zaleski both left it all in the cage that night and were rewarded handsomely for their efforts. A split decision was the only obvious outcome to this fight, and unfortunately the judges leaned towards Zaleski. We hope to see Good back in the cage soon, a showing like this gained him a lot of new fans and obvious attention from the bosses of the UFC.
Jimmie Rivera (TSMMA) vs Thomas Almeida – 135lbs
Rivera wins via Unanimous Decision

What a night for the Tiger Schulmann’s organization! The turnout was incredible, from the pre-show meetup at the Coliseum to the sea of “Born & Bred” t-shirts that filled the stands. It is safe to say Team Tiger Schulmann’s owned the Coliseum on July 22nd of 2017. Our “Born & Bred” competitors shined in the caged and our “Tiger” supporters returned the favor with overwhelming crowed support that included chants of “TSK, TSK” and “Let’s Go Jimmie.” All in all everyone played their part in this historic day in Tiger Schulmann’s history.
