Everyone’s favorite cake-eater from The Ultimate Fighter season 5, Gabe “Godzilla” Ruediger (11-5) will be fighting Nick “The Italian Stallion” Realle in the main event at GLADIATOR CHALLENGE: WARRIORS which takes place Wednesday, February 4, at the Casino Pauma in San Diego.
Nick Realle is coming off a dominating performance over Brad Ball at Gladiator Challenge: Revolution back in January while Ruediger is coming off two straight losses. Reudiger thinks he came back too soon from an injury in his last fight, was not fully prepared and considers this his “real” comeback as he tries to get on the winning side of things.
Also featured at “WARRIORS” will be a Gladiator Challenge Featherweight Title fight between the always-tough Darryl Montague and Robbie Peralta. Heavyweights, David Diaz and Jaime Sanders will lock horns, and well-known veteran William “The Bull” Sriyapai will take on George Sanchez in a welterweight bout. There are 14 fights scheduled for this event.
