Warrior FC returns under new management and the main event of their first outing is big one. On May 19th Ken Beverly will meet Isaiah Ferguson in the headliner at the Knott County Sports Complex.
Ken Beverly (6-3) upset Jamal Mohammed in his last fight. Beverly has won three of his last four and put on a tremendous fight of the night performance with Mohammad at Hardrock MMA 97 in Lexington. Beverly will be close to home. He has shown he is durable with two big decision wins. The 21 year old has had nine fights since going pro back in 2016.
It’s been a little over three years since we’ve seen Isaiah Ferguson (7-1). Ferguson’s last fight was in February of 2015, a quick win over Doug Ballinger in Shepherdsville at Hardrock MMA 70. The only blemish to the 25 year old’s record is a split decision loss to Nathan Maness. Ferguson has six submission wins with five of those coming in the first round.
Beverly is riding the wave of momentum following his win while we see Ferguson coming back to make some noise in Kentucky. This fight could be a early favorite for fight of the year and we look forward to seeing them both.
