Armando Gjetja earns main event/title shot at Ring of Combat 80
Interview with Armando Gjetja above
Ring of Combat has been one of the most successful regional MMA shows for well over ten years now. Louis Neglia and Dead Serious Promotions, Frankie Perez Sr, take pride in providing the forum to some of the most talented fighters to display their skills. Over 140 fighters have gone on to the UFC after performing in the ROC cage. Who will be next? ROC 80 is a good place to start looking.
Ring of Combat 80 will be held in Atlantic City’s Tropicana Casino and Hotel Resort on Friday, May 12th. The card is once again stocked with exciting matchups and competitors who have next level talents.
Capping off the night in the main event will be a showdown for the vacant ROC lightweight championship. Darius Estell (7-4) comes in from Michigan and is a LFA and CES veteran. He will be facing the surging Albanian, Armando Gjetja (6-3). Gjetja has earned the main event and belt opportunity with four straight victories with the last three by finish. Armando is a highlight reel waiting to happen. He throws a huge arsenal of striking techniques and has a motor that cannot be questioned. Gjetja has been in several all out wars and has proven that he can take a punch as well. He’s a savage with a huge heart who gets his chance to shine in the final fight of the night.
MyMMANews reached out to Armando to see how he was feeling as we head into fight week. He tells us…
“I just had my one-year anniversary of moving to LAW MMA full time. I’m feeling very confident. One of my biggest issues is that I have always think too much putting all of these scenarios in my head. I needed some guidance. Ray Longo has been that guidance for me. Mentally, physically, I’m in the right place and thankful for the opportunity that Ring of Combat is giving me.”

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
