Karate Combat: The G.O.A.T. Returns Results
The co-main features Bruno Assis who is trying to get back in the win column after his unsuccessful attempt at capturing the title. He will be fighting the action-packed Vitalie Certan, last year’s winner of ‘Fighter of the Season’ and ‘Fight of the Season’. This fight has even higher stakes with the winner possibly fighting for the belt next.
Myrza-Bek Tebuev will come off his long layoff from an injury sustained while fighting against Jesus Lopez. This will be a tricky fight to navigate for the Dagestani fighter as Lopez will be looking to showcase his devastating power punches tonight.
Rounding out the event will be a great clash of styles between debuting fighters Damian Villa and Gabriel Stankunas. Villa is a world champion in taekwondo bringing a unique background to Karate Combat when he goes against Stankunas, who is decorated in his own right being a Brazilian national karate team member.
