TULSA, Okla. – 5150 Combat League is bringing a host of UFC veterans including Houston Alexander, Jeff Monson, Jeremy Horn, Jason Lambert, Tim Boetsch, and Rich Clementi to Tulsa, Okla. this weekend for a “New Year’s Revolution”. The action takes place Sat., Jan. 16, at the Spirit Bank Event Center, and will broadcast a live online pay-per-view stream for $9.99 on www.gofightlive.com beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Houston Alexander (9-5) returns to the cage against Joey Beltran (9-3) after suffering a loss to Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson in his last fight, which took place on Dec. 5 in the UFC’s TUF 10 Finale. Joey Beltran knocked out five straight opponents until he most recently lost a unanimous decision against Tony Lopez in a King of the Cage title bout this past October.
Heavyweight fighter Scott Barrett (9-1) gets the opportunity of a lifetime as he gets to square off with MMA legend and grappling phenom Jeff “Snowman” Monson (31-9). One of Monson’s best qualities is his love of competition and apparent willingness to fight anyone, anywhere, anytime, in shows big or small.
He has consistently remained one of the most active upper echelon heavyweight fighters in the world. In fact, he seems to fight more frequently the older he gets. Monson is 8-2 in his last ten bouts. He was on a seven-fight win streak until he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Pedro Rizzo this past September.
Scott Barrett will be an interesting test for Monson. Out of nine victories, Barret has finished eight of his opponents, and knocked out seven of them. He is a heavy hitter with all but one of his knockouts coming in the first round. He is currently on a three-fight win streak.
