The main event features the promotion’s first-ever superfight, as Brazilian lightweight champion Luiz Rocha will American welterweight champion Josh Quayhagen, although neither belt will be on the line. Both fighters previously fought in Bellator in MMA, but both have impressive 7-2 and 6-1 records respectively in their new sport.
In the co-main event, one of the most decorated strikers alive, Raymond Daniels, makes his promotional debut against Ecuadorian Shotokan specialist Franklin Mina. The former WAKO, Glory, and Bellator Kickboxing champion Daniels makes the move back to his roots tonight to face Mina, who will have the advantage of having competed in The Pit five times, amassing a 3-2 record and previously challenging for the middleweight title.
At heavyweight, a pair of Shotokan specialists with three wins in The Pit will face off as “Black Magic” Elhadji Gaye Ndour faces Achraf Ouchen. The main card will also be opened by former LFA featherweight champion and UFC veteran Bruno Souza, who will make his promotional debut against fellow debutant and Polish Kyokushin specialist Maciej Tercjak.
Of note on the preliminary card, BFL veteran Jonathan Broad is set to make his promotional debut against Italian Shito-Ryu specialist Gabriele Cera, who holds a 1-3 record in the promotion.
MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with Karate Combat 35 results, with the event available live on YouTube starting at 7pm ET/4pm PT.
