Sean Fallon returns to action this weekend against Kyle Nickle

After a few month layoff, Sean Fallon (1-0) will make his return to the cage this Saturday night. He will meet Kyle Nickle (2-2) at Extreme Combat Challenge: Fireworks in Indianapolis. Fallon has not seen action since he won his professional debut over Trey Cole III this past March.

“Shake’n Bake,” as Sean Fallon is referred to, is a staple in the Indiana MMA community. He amassed fifteen amateur fights in a three-year span, this kind of activity has made him a household name among fans throughout the state.

The younger Kyle Nickle is coming off a loss in his most recent outing. He suffered a second-round submission against Bryant Whitaker. Soon after the bout became official, Nickle took to his Facebook stating, “This will be a good fight with a good opponent.” Nickle learned from his defeat, vowing not to get submitted by Fallon. “I won’t be submitted again,” declared the 25-year old.

We have seen Fallon compete several times during his career, and we couldn’t agree more with what Nickle had to say. This fight will be one that you will not want to miss. “I have been preparing all summer and expect a great performance and another win as a professional,” Fallon told his friends and fans.

Belal Muhammad is a two time Bellator veteran who’s last fight came at Bellator 112 where he defeated AJ Matthews. He made his professional debut for Hoosier Fight Club back in 2012 and has three wins under the HFC banner. He will come into the fight with less experience than Curtis but that seems to be how many of his fights have went. Curtis will make his HFC debut riding a three fight win streak. He has won five of his last six fights. He submitted Tiawan Howard back in June.

We’ve talked about it for some time now, but last night history was officially made. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Gladiators of the Cage made their Ohio debut. In addition to hosting their event in the Buckeye state, they were the first organization to hold an event at one of the newly constructed casinos.

The Hard Rock Rocksino played host in what turned out to be a great venue- it was a great backdrop to the action that took place inside the cage. One of the more exciting fights that occurred was the professional welterweight title fight between challenger Rocky Edwards and champion Zac Gobel.

History is set to take place tonight in Ohio, as Gladiators of the Cage invades Hard Rock Rocksino. For the first time an MMA event will be held at one of the newly constructed casinos in the Buckeye state. Tonight’s event will be headlined by Dom “Non-Stop Action Packed” Steele (11-4) and Jose Figueroa (11-6).

In the co-main event fight, Zac Gobel (4-1) will be defending his welterweight title against Rocky Edwards (6-3-1). This will be the first time that Gobel has defended his belt since winning it last May. Both of these up-and-coming welterweights are coming off impressive wins, only one will walk out victorious.

Tonight’s event is sanctioned by the Ohio Athletic Commission (OAC) under the supervisor of Bernie Profato. We will be bringing you all of the results from Gladiators of the Cage: The Road to Glory VII as it happens.

The stage is set for tonight’s Gladiators of the Cage: The Road to Glory VII event at the new Hard Rock Rocksino near Cleveland. The company has found success in Pennsylvania and are making history by being the first promotion to hold an event inside a casino. The folks behind GOTC have been hard at work and tonight the fruits of their labor should shine.

The main event holds significance for both Vision MMA’s Dom Steele and his opponent Jose Figeuroa. Steele has put together an impressive winning streak and will need that momentum to help defeat the former M-1 Global lightweight champion. Figueroa was sidelined with injury and suspension but bounced back with a big win earlier this year. He will now have a chance to get back on track against the surging Steele.
