Made Men Promotions returns to Penguin City Beer with two title fights
Live cage fights will go down in a brewery once again this weekend, as Made Men Promotions returns to Penguin City Beer in Youngstown, Ohio to host Live Cage Fights at Penguin City 2.
The amateur event will be headlined by a pair of title fights, as Bobby Houston and Trae Cusac square off for the light heavyweight title while Jesse Terwilliger and Tywan Stills throw down for the middleweight crown.
A Youngstown native, Houston looks for his third straight win after returning to MMA last year following his Army career. The 28-year-old Campbell Martial Arts product is 4-1 with all four wins via stoppage, and he’s currently ranked as the No. 13 light heavyweight in Ohio according to Tapology.
Demolition Fight Team’s Cusac made his amateur debut less than 11 months ago, but he’s already racked up a 4-0 record including a pair of stoppages. The 31-year-old is coming off of a win over Chase Stafford in his last outing in January and he’s ranked as the No. 7 light heavyweight in Ohio.
Terwilliger represents Team Beast Mode and is 4-2 with one no contest in his career. His last outing was an arm bar submission victory in the main event of the first Live Cage Fights at Penguin City event in December. He has three stoppage wins and is ranked as the No. 9 amateur middleweight in Ohio.
Stills is a ten-fight veteran with a 5-5 record and sits right behind Terwilliger in the rankings at No. 10. The Karoshi Combat Sports product competes for the first time in over 14 months, with his last outing being a decision over Charles Payne at WFC 133 in February 2022.
The fight card also features multiple veteran fighters, including a featherweight bout pitting Dusty Shaffer (4-1) and Clinton Ewing (4-3) and a light heavyweight bout featuring Sean Dinan (4-4) vs. Vester Harris (4-6).
The event streams live at MadeMenPromotions.com for an iPPV price of $19.99.
