Jeff Pelton vs Jake Miller

Caged Thunder 5 is set to be the promotion’s debut pro/am event, going down on Thanksgiving Eve at the American Legion in Kent, Ohio.

The event features a pair of pro bouts, including a headliner featuring Jeff Pelton (5-2) taking on Jake Miller (3-0) in a lightweight contest.

Pelton was originally slated to take on Damonte Robinson, but Robinson had to have emergency surgery according to Scott Corbin and was forced out of the bout.

A member of Strong Style Fight Team, Pelton has a pair of submissions and a TKO win to his credit. He comes in looking to rebound from a loss against Nick Browne at Pinnacle FC 17 in his last outing. He’s ranked as the No. 7 pro lightweight in Ohio by Tapology.

Miller has reeled off three straight finishes since turning pro late last year, including a knockout over James Sanchez in his last outing at Iron Tiger 83 in July. He also has a submission over Keith Speed and a TKO victory over Zack Davis. He’s ranked as the No. 8 pro lightweight in Ohio.

The night’s co-main event features Chad Kelly (2-3) vs. Letay Allen (1-2) in a matchup of heavy-hitters. Kelly also trains out of Strong Style and has both of his wins as a pro via TKO. Allen earned his pro debut win via knockout in just 15 seconds, but has since suffered setbacks in his two most recent bouts.

The 11-bout amateur card is topped by welterweights, as Justin Patterson (3-0) looks to remain unbeaten against Braden Liggett (4-1).

Caged Thunder 5 takes place on Nov. 21. Check out the full lineup below.
