Middleweight, Nick Hawkins (4-0-1)
Hawkins after going to a draw in his first fight, has gone on to win his next four fights with three finishes. When needed Hawkins can wrestle but first and foremost he’s a striker. He’s very aggressive from bell to bell being always in the face of his opponents with a relentless attack of left and rights. Hawkins has shown he slows as the fight goes but it’s because of all the power he throws. He fights Angelo Rivera Jr. who is 9-5 and on a three-fight skid.

Light-Heavyweight, Zach Bradshaw (4-0)
Bradshaw has made quick work of his opponents with all four finishes in the first round with the longest fight going 1:37. Bradshaw hasn’t played much of a part on the feet but he does have some excellent wrestling where he will suplex his opponents. On the mat, he moves very well for a big man and his ground and pound is his best weapon. He fights Tyler Rowe (6-4) who is flawed in areas where Bradshaw should exploit.
