Lou Neglia’s “Ring of Combat XXV” took place at the Tropicana Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. on Friday, June 12, 2009. In the co-main event, Ricardo Romero defeated Team Link’s Karen Grigoryan to take home the USKBA Light Heavyweight Title.
In the main event, Rafael “Sapo” Natal from Team Renzo Gracie did his best to defend his middleweight title against Victor O’Donnell. In the end O’Donnell proved to be too much for Sapo, staggering him over and over again on the feet with punches. Sapo showed great heart but the doctor would not let him answer the bell for round two, thus making O’Donnell the new Ring of Combat Middleweight Champion.
