Ring of Combat is the east coast’s premier mixed martial arts promotion. Founded by three-time world kickboxing champion Lou Neglia in 2002, Ring of Combat paved the way for martial arts on the east coast, being the first promotion to put on sanctioned MMA fights in the Garden State. Lou and his team aren’t just bringing in anybody to fight though, they’re bringing in the most elite fighters on the east coast together to see who the sports most elite fighters are. This is why in over 50 events, 152 ROC fighters have earned a spot in the UFC with many more on the cusp. Furthermore, 6 of those fighters have gone on to become UFC champions including Matt Serra, Frankie Edgar, Chris Weidman, Eddie Alvarez, Aljamain Sterling, and Charles Oliveria. No other promotion in the world can say these things.
Lou Neglia’s Ring of Combat is making its return to Atlantic City on Friday, October 22, and this card is absolutely stacked. It features three title fights and an additional 10 fights on a stacked undercard. It’s a can’t-miss event.
I got to talk to title challenger Dylan Mantello, and Headliner Dennis Buzukja ahead of their bouts on Friday. Check it out!
