“Ring of Combat XXIV” went down Friday night, April 17th in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino. There were fourteen fights in total. Even without Rolles Gracie, who was originally scheduled to fight on the card, there was plenty of action to entertain the fans.
Sean Salmon returned with a dominating three round unanimous decision performance, scoring 30-25 on one judge’s card. In the title fights, Charles Oliveira de Silva took home the USKBA East Coast Lightweight Title and Rafael “Sapo” Natal defended his Ring of Combat Middleweight Title against Plinio Cruz with a second round rear naked choke submission.
