Dead Serious Five
Hard hitting MMA action returns to the Rahway Rec Center in Rahway, New Jersey as Dead Serious MMA presents "Dead Serious V" on October 27 live on the GFL Combat Sports Network. Dead Serious MMA is planning to blow the roof off in Rahway by giving the fans multiple title bouts on the card.
In the main event, for the Light Heavyweight Championship, Champion Jose Pinto (3-0) defends his title against Rafal Niewiarowski. Pinto is an exciting 205 lb fighter who likes to grind his opponents out on the mat, but also has a solid set of grappling skills and can end the fight with a submission. This will be Pinto's first title defense as he won the belt back at "Dead Serious Four" in May. The native of New Jersey, Pinto, will look to push the pace early and keep that pace for as long as the fight goes. Pinto's conditioning is the strongest part of his MMA game.
In the co-main event, for the Lightweight Championship, Champion Chris Sladky (4-0) fights Jake SaintJuste (3-1). This will be Sladky's second title defense and he has proven himself time and time again in the cage as evidenced by his perfect record. Sladky loves the grappling game and has submitted half of his opponents. An all-around fighter, Sladky looks to show off his striking game in his bout with SaintJuste. For SaintJuste, he comes into the fight with also two wins to his credit via submission. This will be SaintJuste's first title fight, so Sladky will look to utilize any pre-fight jitters to his advantage. But SaintJuste is a fighter that has put in the time in the gym and in the cage and has proven he has the cardio to go a full fight, so don't expect him to have an adrenaline dump. This bout is an early candidate for fight of the night.
