(PRESS RELEASE) -- New York - It was another SOLD OUT show for Lou
Neglia’s Ring of Combat as the Tropicana Casino played host to ROC
47 this past Friday. The atmosphere was electric and fight fans
packed the venue to show support for the long running promotion and
to also cheer on their favorite fighter.
“I am always proud for the support we get receive from the fight
fans and the community, said Lou Neglia, Ring of Combat President.
“A lot of hardwork goes into each and every Ring of Combat show and
when you receive that kind of support from the fans, you just can’t
say “thank you” enough,” Lou continued.
At a time when MMA promotions are battling for the #2 spot (behind
the UFC) or busy calling each other out, Lou Neglia’s Ring of
Combat continues to stand behind its successful formula of keeping
it simple and giving the fight fans what they pay to see….great,
evenly matched, fights from tomorrow's superstars.
This formula was again in play for ROC 47 as five fighters have
earned the right to wear ROC gold in competitive and entertaining
matchups. All titles were vacated by ROC alumni who now compete in
the UFC such as current UFC Middleweight champion Chris
Weidman and undefeated prospect, Ryan LaFlare
to name only a couple.
Lou Neglia feels this group of newly crowned champions will also go
on to compete in the UFC just like their predecessors. “This group
of new Ring of Combat champions is a very talented group of
fighters,” affirms Lou. “I have no doubt that they will be getting
the call to compete in the UFC and just to make it to the big stage
alone makes the ROC team and myself very proud,” he continued.
At ROC 47, Lou Neglia was joined by good friends and also former
Ring of Combat alumni Chris
Edgar and Matt Serra who
all went on to become UFC champions. All three are regular
attendees at Ring of Combat events as they always support the
fighters and the organization where they came from.
Ring of Combat is proud to announce their new champions:
