Event Videos and Bouts
World Combat Series makes its hotly anticipated debut with the GFL Combat Sports Network on March 17 with World Combat Series 3 - Orange County VS San Diego County. The California-based organization looks to spread its wings to neighboring states like Nevada in the near future, but for now, WCS is going to stay in the Golden State and present its premier series 10 bout card at the famous World Gym Vista location.
The main event pits lightweights, Oscar Gonzalez (5-2) out of Victory MMA against Trevor Gray (2-0) from USSD. Gonzalez is on a 2-fight winning streak with both victories coming via submission. In fact, all of Gonzalez' 5 wins have come via stoppage (either KO or submission). The undefeated Gray already holds a submission win in 2012 and the San Clemente fighter looks to stay very active this year as he makes his way up through the California amateur ranks. A victory over Gonzalez would propel Gray's career to the next level and make him a popular commodity with the Southern California MMA scene. But that's easier said than done as Gonzalez is a veteran of more than double the fights and has fought much stiffer competition during his career. Look for these two 155 lb fighters to come out blazing and looking for opportunities to end the fight via KO or submission throughout the entire fight. This should be a barnburner.
The co-main event features a pair of bantamweights as Victory MMA's Coby Hollier (1-2-0-1) fights Lightning MMA's Dara Ahmadnia (1-0). Hollier has an odd record as his first bout ended in a no contest. Since then, he has went to decision 3 times, losing two hard fought fights, including one split decision. Hollier looks to take it out of the judges' hands on March 17 and finish Ahmadnia before the final bell. Ahmadnia is very new to MMA and had his only fight 10 month ago, a submission victory. Since that time, Ahmadnia has been honing and refining his skills and will be a completely new fighter when he shows up in the cage against Hollier. With both fighters having something to prove, don't blink as these two 145 lb gladiators will look to steal the show from the get go.
World Combat Series 3 - Orange County VS San Diego County is a stacked lineup of the top up and coming prospects in Southern California. California has always been a leader in MMA, so tune in to watch the stars of tomorrow compete today. Order this iPPV exclusively at GFL.tv
