Current Strikeforce Mixed Martial Arts roster fighter Virgil
Zwicker brings his 10-3 MMA record to the BAMMA USA cage when
he faces former Strikeforce fighter Mike Cook in
the Light Heavyweight Division. Virgil
Zwicker is a Kummeyaay Indian from the San Pasqual Indian
Reservation (North San Diego County) and a member of Team Quest in
Temecula, CA. Mike Cook is
an active fighter averaging 3 fights a year since turning pro in
2006 and fights out of Team Ruiz in Fresno, CA. Each fighter looks
to start their own win streak in the Light Heavyweight Division at
Badbeat 7 presented by Budweiser.
Undefeated Chris Beal
returns to "his home" (the Badbeat cage) to face experienced MMA
fighter Shad Smith in
the Bantamweight Division. Beal is determined to continue his climb
to the top of the sport but Shad Smith
poses a formidable challenge with his wealth of knowledge and
experience in MMA.
Jasper's fans keep growing for good reason. Mike has had some of
the most exciting fights inside the Badbeat cage; he not only
brings the fans, he brings the fight. Mike's opponent will have to
overcome the hostile environment outside the cage and match the
pace inside the cage if he wants to get a win against the
Culley just completed an intense and personal battle in his
last Badbeat appearance. He now steps into a new one against
Gloudeman. These two fighters have already exchanged barbs
through their social media accounts. The heat between the two will
boil over at Badbeat 7.
Catlin is hungry for some action after being left alone at the
cage door when his opponent refused to fight him just hours before
their scheduled fight at Badbeat 6. Harold
Lucambio is coming off a second round TKO victory, the first
striking victory of his pro MMA career, in his last fight. Will the
heavy-handed power of Catlin overcome the ground superiority of
Lucambio? Find out at Badbeat 7.
