Kentucky’s leading cage fighting event is back as Spartan Fighting Championship 11 presents Destruction on Friday, January 13 at the National Guard Armory in Ashland, Kentucky Live iPPV at www.GFL.tv. SFC always puts on action-packed cards and this event is no exception. The 17-bout pro/am card has a total of 3 titles up for grabs along with a main event that features two rising prospects on a collision course. SFC only promotes the best prospects in the region as the athletes records speak for themselves. SFC has quickly become the top organization not only in the Bluegrass State by throughout the territory because of its matchmaking and the high quality of fighters that it is able to sign.
In the main event, Jason Butcher (2-0) fights Jared “Honey” Combs (7-1) in a pro tussle. Butcher recently turned pro after amassing a (6-2) amateur record. Both of Butcher’s professional victories have come via first round finishes, one KO and one submission. With a strong wrestling and grappling background, Butcher likes to get the fight to the mat where he can work for a submission or use his ground and pound to finish his opponents. Fighting Combs will be like looking in the mirror as he too likes to get fights to the ground and use vicious striking to take his opponents out. Combs has 4 times the experience fighting professionally and that should be an advantage for him in this bout. Neither fighter has ever gone the distance so if the fight gets into the later rounds, conditioning could play a major part. The winner of this bout sets himself up to be the #1 prospect in the entire Ohio Valley region.
In the co-main event, Cornelius Godfrey (3-0) battles Thomas Campbell (3-1) for the newly minted SFC 135 lb Pro Championship. Godfrey has finished every opponent that’s been put in front of him, but the challenger on January 13 is going to be the toughest test to date. Campbell is on a 3-fight winning streak with all victories coming way of first round submission. Look for this bout to be “fight of the night” as these two bantamweights don’t know how to pace themselves. Don’t blink as this bout could be over seconds into round one. Finally, in a professional debut fight, Jesus Contreras (7-1) will take on Zack Oden.
Also up for grabs are two amateur titles. Undefeated Michael Seals (7-0) battles David West (5-1) for the SFC 170 Amateur Championship, while Chris Brown (5-0) takes on James Williams (3-0) for the SFC 205 lb Amateur Title.
