The man known as “Smash,” Ash Mashreghi will return to the Battlefield cage on June 24 against David Perron at BFL 49.
Mashreghi (6-5) was on a tear, winning six fights in a row coming into 2016 and won the BFL welterweight gold at BFL 39. Unfortunately, he hit a bit of a road block and is currently on a two-fight slide. Smash fought twice last year, with losses to two top BFL contenders Curtis Harriott and Tristan Connelly, both losses happened due to injury.
Perron (7-7) has been a staple on the BC fight scene since 2009, but didn’t make his BFL debut until 2014. “Showtime” has fought four times for the promotion and holds a 1-3 record. Perron has fought back to back fights against BFL welterweight king Chris Anderson, however only one was a MMA fight. He lost a decision to “Bukwas” at BFL 41 and won a grappling bout against him at BFL 43.
This will be both fighters’ first contest of 2017.
