Pinnacle Fighting Championships returns to Printscape Arena on Saturday, June 9 for Pinnacle FC 17. Get ready for another action packed card that will showcase some of the area’s top talent.
In the lightweight main event, champion Nick Brown defends against Jeffery Pelton while in the co-main event, a featherweight title bout between John Dejesus and Ruben Warr.
De Jesus has the juice. There’s no easier way to put it. His stand up game is smooth and efficient with cracking power coupled with an over abundance of confidence. He’s also been on a tear as of late going 4-1 in his last five and producing 3 stoppages over super tough guys like Cody Stevens and Jason Wright.
Ruben Warr could quite possibly have the best last name in the business, especially if that business just happens to be cage fighting. Warr is on a 8 fight win streak and is one of kentucky’s top professional prospects. He also holds a win over Rick James, not THE Rick James but this author is banking on you only half reading this.
This is the type of match up that both the casual fan and the hardcores alike can appreciate. These are the type of match ups that has put Pinnacle FC on the map.
Just added to the amateur portion of the card, a lightweight bout between Jake Schilling (7-2) and Mikey Flores (6-2).
“I’m ready to go forward and I’m ready to go at him putting it all on the line June 9th at the Printscape Arena,” Schilling tells MyMMANews.
