Ring of Combat returns March 17 with ROC AMXII. This event has another stacked lineup, something Ring of Combat has become synonymous with, as this time the amateurs are showcased and the 170 lb title 5 is on the line as fans from all over the world will be tuning in either in person at the Rahway Recreation Center in Rahway, New Jersey or on PPV through the GFL Combat Sports Network to watch this exciting card. ROC continues to be the linchpin of East Coast MMA and this 16-bout card reiterates its dominance as the top dog in the Tri-State area.
In the main event, Eddie Lenoci (5-1) battles Rick Guerrieri (0-0) for the ROC Amateur Welterweight Title. Lenoci won the title in 2011 at AMXI by choke and looks to defend the belt for the first time at AMXII. All of Lenoci's victories have come via KO or submission, and even his lone defeat has come via stoppage so expect this bout not to do to the distance. Lenoci has been very successful with his fast paced, high risk/high reward style and fighting in the main event will only sharpen Lenoci's resolve to put on an entertaining show for the fans. For Guerrieri, he makes his debut after a successful career as an amateur wrestler. After wrestling collegiately for West Virginia, Guerrieri looks to transition into MMA and he has a tough fight on his hands in his first outing. But Guerrieri has a track record of dominating his wrestling matches with a strong takedown and relentless pressure. If he can transfer that skillset over to MMA he will be a tough draw for any fighter.
In other action, Scott Krampetz (4-4) takes on Ronnie Torres (2-2) in a featherweight showdown. Krampetz is suffered back to back losses, but looks to get back on the winning streak and eventually title show at 145 lb. Torres is coming off a hard fought decision win and goes for two in a row at ROC AMXII. This is a bout where both men are looking to take the next step in their fight careers, but at the other's expense. Krampetz and Torres should be in line for fight of the night as both men have everything to prove.
You won't find a more thrilling card then this one. Be sure to catch all of the action LIVE on March 17 as Ring of Combat presents ROC AMXII exclusively on pay-per-view at GFL.tv.
