Combate Global 47 Set for Strawweight Headliner

Lopez, 33 years old, will make her long awaited appearance since debuting in impressing fashion, defeating two opponents in one night last year on August 13th, in which Lopez followed up as the runner up in the first ever eight woman Combate Global tournament.

Rivarola, 33 years old, will see action for the first this year since earning a unanimous decision victory over Stephanie Frausto last December.

A former undefeated kickboxing amateur, she was revered for her kickboxing skills, and in her pro MMA career has never been knocked out or submitted.

Co-Main Event

The co-main event features a flyweight (125 lbs) bout between Rosselyn ‘Chula’ Chavira (2-0) and Flor Chavez (1-0) in what is a U.S.A versus Mexico hyped bout amongst both women.

At just 21 years of age, Chavez is coming off her first professional win when she debuted against Blanca Marquez on April 8th. Chavez hails from Mexico City and is looking to add another win against another American born Latin fighter in Chavira.
