IT Fight Series 76 marks the promotion’s debut in Mentor, Ohio next month, as they head to the Heisley Sports Complex for a pro/am card.
A member of the Strong Style Fight Team, Willeford (#1 am FLW, OH) is a former Cleveland State wrestler who has been impressive thus far in his amateur career. All four of his wins have come in the first round, including three in a row via submission. Most recently, he submitted AJ Wilkins with a guillotine at IT Fight Series 72 in March.
Hauser (#3 am BW, OH) is also a former collegiate wrestler, as he spent time on the mats at Notre Dame College. The Evolve MMA product comes in looking to rebound from his first loss, as he moved up in weight to take on Chaka Worthy at IT Fight Series 75 earlier this month and came up short.
Ballou (#5 pro FLW, KY) has picked up a pair of first round submission wins after turning pro last October. Walker (#8 pro BW, OH) will return from a second layoff, as he broke a four-year absence last July to pick up a win over Joe Pegg at IT Fight Series.
Check out the current card below.
Robert Walker vs. Donnie Ballou
Ben Willeford vs. Brian Hauser – Flyweight Title
Robert Houston vs. Trenton Zdarko
Isaac Camargo vs. Matthew Plencher
