Skelly, who trains out of Team Takedown in the Dallas area, home to UFC Welterweight Title Contender Johny Hendricks, looks to keep his undefeated record intact. Villa, a well-rounded fighter out of Roswell, NM, has plans of his own; to hand Skelly his first career loss.
Fans can expect sparks to fly during the Co-main event when welterweight sluggers Charles Byrd (6-3) and Mike Bronzoulis (15-6) step into the cage. Byrd, who trains with Saekson’s Muay Thai camp in the Dallas area, plans to kick off the New Year with a notable win over Bronzoulis, a Fight Master reality show finalist.
