Mike DesRosiers (0-0) United Fighting Arts Institute
May made his amateur debut last month at XCP: Barre Beatdown. May squared off against Matt Luce while falling short of victory via submission choke in the 1st round. May will be looking to get that 1st mark in his win column.

GLADIATORS OF THE CAGE:ROAD TO GLORY 7 JULY 19 07:00 PM ET
Dominique Steele (11-4) Aaron Thomas Jiu Jitsu
Jose Figueroa (12-6) American Top Team Orlando
Steele is currently on a 5 fight win streak with his latest win over Dan Hornbuckle via unanimous decision at NAAFS back in March. Steele has fought in Bellator going up against Brian Rogers losing via unanimous decision and the only fighter Rogers hasn’t finished at the time.
Figueroa has tons of experience and will definitely be bringing it to Steele. The M-1 Global veteran has fought some of the toughest opponents out their and will be looking to upset Steele. I got a feeling this could be a bloody war as these two go to battle.

SUMMIT FC 2 – JULY 19 – 08:00 PM ET
Jaleel Willis (1-0) Memphis Judo & Jiu Jitsu
Brian Brooks (1-1) Bushido/Warrior Fitness
Willis ended his amateur career as the V3 Champion defeating Eli McGlothlin via TKO in the 1st round almost a year ago. Willis turned pro June of this year recording his first pro victory against Adam Nash via TKO in the 1st round.
Brooks had a very successful amateur career with a 13-4 record, very impressive. Since turning pro Brooks is 1-1 while coming off a loss against Bobby Taylor via TKO in the 2nd round. Brooks hasn’t fought in 9 nine months and before that he was out for about 2 1/2 years. I think this will be a good fight for both fighters and a test to see were they’re at in their early careers.

Will Nolan (12-4) American Kickboxing – Academy
CJ Marsh (5-5) White Buffaloe Warriors
Nolan was set to face Alfonso Gonzales in this Middleweight match up, but due to injury Gonzales had to with draw. Nolan is currently on a 2 fight win streak with both wins coming at KOTC finishing both opponents. Nolan has 3 KO/TKO, 6 Submissions & 3 Decisions to go with his 12 victories.
CJ Marsh steps in on short notice to fight Nolan and has a 2 fight win streak. Both victories were finishes with a KO/TKO over Maki Pitolo at Destiny Noa Ka 5 and a KO/TKO win over Jacob Harkness at KOTC: Seek & Destroy. Not an easy fight by any stretch of imagination for Nolan.
We sure hope for a speedy recovery for Alfonso Gonzales. Follow Alfonso Gonzales @ZoBigSmooth185
