Colusa, Calif. — Gladiator Challenge (GC), one of the longest-running MMA promotions in existence, proudly presents “Total Recall” on Friday, July 31st, live from the Colusa Casino Resort in Colusa, California.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with fights beginning at 8:00 p.m. GC has scheduled more than 10 action-packed bouts, including two Gladiator Challenge World title fights.

The main event pits Jeff Morris (6-5) against Steve Eldridge (1-1), in a bout that has Eldridge’s GC Middleweight World Title belt on the line. The co-main event features an equally exciting clash between current GC Super Heavyweight World Champion, Ross Clifton (6-9), and undefeated newcomer, Rick Vardell (1-0).

Information on the Colusa Casino Resort can be found at, or by calling (530) 458-8844. MMA fans can purchase tickets to “Total Recall” at, or call (888) 826-8858.

GC Middleweight champion, Steve Eldridge, will be looking at this bout as an opportunity to both improve on his record and defend his title. Eldridge is coming off an impressive victory (submission due to punches) against Robert Sarkozi this past May at GC’s “Put Up or Shut Up” event.

Eldridge will face a tough test as faces off against a more experienced fighter in Jeff Morris. Morris should be fresh as he steps into the ring for the first time since winning his last fight against Tony Juares more than six months ago.

Standing at 6’8” and weighing in at 360 lbs, current GC Super Heavyweight champion, Ross Clifton, has a chip on his shoulder that is matched only by his huge frame. Clifton is focused and ready to notch a win on his record after having lost four straight.

His last defeat came at the hands of former UFC legend Ken Shamrock, who tested positive after the bout for steroids. Clifton wants to prove that loss was a fluke and is looking to dish out his frustration on undefeated GC newcomer, Rick Vardell.

Vardell is walking proof that MMA fighters come from a broad array of backgrounds, as his experience includes time spent in competitive arm wrestling.

Also featured on this card: Jaime Jara, Tim Hausler Sr, David Sauraz, Bill Everheart, Rob Dean, Chris Latino, Travis Hutto, Matt Williamson, Termain Smith, Joe McClure, Robert Ballard and many more!
