“United Fight Alliance is proud to be partnering with House of Fame again in another great event. I always look forward to their events because of their great cards” stated Adams. “This upcoming HOF 5 Resurrection Day will be no exception. Fort Lauderdale and the Mardi Gras Casino offer the perfect backdrop to a great night of live cage fights. Given the proximity to some of the best combat schools in the world, international fight celebrities are sure to be there. Paris Tsitos and Frank Morejon always do a great job of spreading out the fight card utilizing a lot of different schools. This show includes fighters from American Top Team, Blackzillians, MMA Masters, Pete White Boxing, Freestyle Fighting Academy, Wagner Rocha Martial Arts, JKB Judo Kickboxing, Rilion Gracie, Homestead Combat Sports, Team Assassin, Ludus Martial Arts and Fight Sports Competition Team.”
As for the main card, doors open at 730pm Fights start at promptly 830pm! Brazillian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Marcel Goncalves meets undefeated fighter Demarques Jackson for a battle at lightweight. In a compelling match-up in the fly weight division, seasoned veteran Haender “Cubita” Rodriguez will be looking to stop young, hard charging Abdiel “The Nightmare” Velazquez. In the main event UFC Veteran Steve “The Creepy Weasel” Montgomery is looking to impress his former bosses at UFC by beating undefeated ground and pound phenome Nicolai Salchow. Adams commented, “Montgomery must keep his winning streak alive if he wants to get back into the big show (and he does…badly.) To do so, He must stop a guy who has been destroying his opponents with what has been unstoppable takedowns. Nicolai possesses great submissions and a scary ground and pound game. Montgomery will have to address that early in the fight.” Can the committed UFC Vet continue his march back to the UFC or will the strong German make a name for himself by knocking him off?
Paris Tsitos, CEO of HOF MMA, has pitted two of the sport’s top gyms – American Top Team and the Blackzilians – against one another in the main card. The rivalry, between the two camps – located just miles apart – started nearly five years ago and is on-going.
