Strong Style Fight Team’s Locsei comes in looking to get back on the winning track, as he has lost two of his last three after starting off 2-0. His last outing was last September, where he lost via first round submission against Michael Taylor at IT Fight Series 79. He’s ranked as the No. 9 pro featherweight in Ohio according to Tapology.
Goss has also lost two of three, including a close split decision in his last outing against Andrew Salas at Bellator MMA 186 in November. The Pennsylvania native makes his first appearance for the promotion since 2014, when he came up short against Jake Schilling in an amateur bout at Pinnacle FC 8.
The fight card is coming together for Pinnacle FC 17, which now features four pro bouts, including two title fights. The event takes place on June 9 at Printscape Arena in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania just outside of Pittsburgh, and airs live via FloCombat.
