Mike Trizano steps for teammate in Ring of Combat 60 main event
His nickname may be “the Lone Wolf,” but Mike Trizano (4-0) is anything but alone as he prepares for his next challenge. He is a proud member of Team Tiger Schulmann, a team that has been knocking it out of the park these days by producing winning, exciting, mixed martial artists.
Fight team members include: Jimmie “El Terror” Rivera, who is one of the top 135 lb. fighters in the world and is in contention for the UFC championship, “Hurricane” Shane Burgos, Lyman Good, Nick Pace, Louis Gaudinot, and the man he stepped in for in this event, Julio Arce.
Arce withdrew from ROC 60 to fight on Dana White’s Contender Series. Trizano helped prepare Arce for that fight and Julio did not disappoint as he stopped Peter Petties with a TKO stoppage due to strikes.
Trizano steps in to fight in the main event at Louis Neglia’s Ring of Combat 60, set to take place in Atlantic City, September 15. His opponent is Serra-Longo fight team member James “Speedy” Gonzalez.
Trizano and Gonzalez were matched up in their pro debuts back at Ring of Combat 54 some eighteen months ago. Mike won that battle with a unanimous decision and tells me ” I really didn’t get comfortable until the 3rd round. He’s a tough kid. I will not take him lightly this time around just because I got that victory the first time we fought.”
Since their first encounter, neither fighter has lost. Trizano has fought and won 3 times, while Gonzalez (4-1) has rebounded very nicely with four consecutive wins. This is an excellent match-up of two top level prospects in the 145 lb division. It should be a tremendous fight to cap the evening. We will be there cage side with results and a full recap. Please give a listen to ‘the Lone Wolf” for his take on the rematch, fighting in a main event, his team and what his future may hold!

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.
