Once again Top Shelf Entertainment brings us another Rubicon event, this time in the beautiful Colorado Springs area! Thirteen fights, four of which are title bouts, were researched and booked to please Colorado MMA fans. We couldn't be more excited to see it all go down!
Vigil vs Watson is our main event title fight that night, Vigil is 3-0 as a pro fighting in different weight classes such as lightweight and now moving up to 180lbs to take on Josh Watson for the title, who is 2-5. But don't let that record fool you! He's taken on the likes of Josh Cavan and Cody Yohn, and now looks to steal Vigil's undefeated record and take home the belt.
The co-main event for the evening brings us Brett Roller (10-11 MMA) vs Flavian Pilgirm (2-0), Roller with over 20 professional fights is a long time Colorado favorite, takes on Pilgrim who is 2-0 as a pro with Jackson/Wink's camp. Both fighters seem to favor submissions to win so, it will be interesting to see how it all goes down!
Also from Jackson/Wink's camp comes Slade Ring (5-4-1) who defended his TSE Bantamweight Amateur Title without a fight, (won by defeating well respected Robert Trujillo), when his opponent forfeit back at Rubicon V. It's not surprising to see the other man quit and it wasn't the first time. Slade comes from a family of fighters in New Mexico who are all very tough and train not only at one of the best fighting camps in the world but also at home with their father Robert Ring who deserves a lot of credit for getting him where he is today. Slade has only ever lost decisions that could have easily went in his favor and that means that this 21 year old fighter will keep swinging until they force him to stop! This will be Slade's fourth fight in 2017! His opponent at Rubicon VI, Casey Hanley (2-2) looks to take that title home. Hanley is on a two fight winning streak hoping to make the third win a title victory and fights with the Pariah MMA camp.
Also keep your eye on Cole Griego (2-2 Jackson/Wink) who takes on Chris Carroll (3-1 Pacific Warriors) for the flyweight title, both fighters are going down in weight to 125lbs for the chance at the flyweight title belt!
You want more title fights? How about Mathew Jackson (4-3) vs Devin Hightower (4-1) for the 185lbs title? This one may end up in a high level grappling match on the ground as both fighters usually win by submission!
Jeff Santos (1-1) vs Ben Acosta (0-2) looks to be an interesting one as this may be Santos's last fight and Acosta is looking for a victory!
