Hardrock MMA 91 marks the promotion’s return to Northern Kentucky tonight. Hardrock MMA will venture to Covington, Kentucky for the first time, as the event takes place at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center.

Headlining tonight’s event is Joshua Thorpe (14-18) who stepped in on short notice to take on Julio Gallegos (8-5).

Thorpe comes in looking to pick up his first win since 2013. In that time, he’s taken on some tough opponents and has lost eight straight bouts. Those opponents include the likes of Muhammad Abdullah, Roger Bowling, Robert White, Ryan Thomas, Luigi Fioravanti, and Dom Steele. He’s also competed at a variety of weight classes, from welterweight to heavyweight. In his last outing, he was submitted by Ron Fields in the first round at Premier MMA Championship 3 in May.

Gallegos returns to his home state for the first time since 2013, when he competed at XFC 23 in Louisville. In his last outing, he dropped a decision against UFC veteran Rodney Wallace at Conflict MMA 42 in November. He looks to snap out of a two-fight losing streak, as his bout prior to that he lost a decision against Sidney Wheeler at Valor Fights 28 in October 2015. He’s also had a few bouts overseas that don’t show up on his official record.

In the co-feature, Charlie Stanford (6-7) looks to get back on the winning track against Jeremy Pender (13-13).

Vision MMA’s Pender looks to bounce back from a loss in his last outing, as he was submitted by Adam Fritz in the first round at Hardrock MMA 89 in May. Prior to that loss, Pender had won three of four bouts. “Pony Boy” has finished all 13 of his wins via stoppage, including 11 via submission and two via (T)KO.

G-Force product Stanford looks to snap out of a rough spell, as he’s just 1-5 in his last six outings. He started his career 5-2, including four wins via (T)KO and one via submission. Then he faced current UFC banamtweight champion Cody Garbrandt. “The Trinity” has had a tough time finding willing opponents recently, as he’s had multiple fights fall through. He talked about falling in love with fighting again ahead of the bout against Pender.

Also, Jamal Mohammed (1-0) will look to remain unbeaten when he faces Tennessee’s James Adcock (2-1) in a featherweight bout.
