Superfights MMA and KC Concepts has officially announced the addition of Rick “The Jet” Roufus to “A Night of Combat II.” Roufus, a kick-boxing legend and former K-1 champion recently transitioned into MMA and is ready to make his mark in the sport. Roufus will face UFC Veteran Hector “Sick Dog” Ramirez in the main event at the Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday, October 11, 2008.
Skip Kelp of Superfights MMA had this to say, “We are excited to have Rick Roufus in our main event. Rick’s a phenomenal fighter, he holds titles in both kick-boxing and boxing, has added ground skills to his arsenal and is ready to take it to the cage.”
The main bout between Roufus (4-3-0) and Ramirez (7-3-1) is well matched. Ramirez last competed for Hardcore Championship Fighting in March, defeating Toronto’s own Rob McDonald by unanimous decision in Gatineau, QC. Roufus, also coming off of a victory, defeated Ryan “The Hunter” Lopez of The Ultimate Fighter 8 by TKO in round 2 at a recent C3 Fight event in Concho, OK.
