Russ Korbul living his dream, looking for 3-0 at ROC 80

Video interview with Russ Korbul 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.  An interesting matchup in the welterweight division will pit Raymond “Da Crippler” Ceballos (2-1) against “The Korbulizer” Russ Korbul (2-0).

I have been privileged to call a few of Korbul’s fights and can state first-hand how much this mixed martial artist has grown.  He has a wrestling background and has been relentlessly working on the other parts of his game. He credits Justin Burke of Diamond Striking for helping him to make big strides in that area. The Korbulizer has been pushing his opponents around and dictating position.  Russ also seems to love what he is doing.  MyMMANews reached out to Russ Korbul.  We asked him why he loves the sport so much.  He tells us…

“Fighting is like the ultimate escape.  You can get it out the right way through fighting or jiu-jitsu.  All my friends are in jiu-jitsu, kickboxing and MMA as well as my mentors.  All of these fellow fighters are going through the same things you are, too.  If I need help with anything going on in my life, these are the people I go to for advice.  They also bring my spirits up if I’m not feeling the best.”

Please check out the full interview on the link above.

I will be in Atlantic City at the commentary table and heading into the cage for some post-fight interviews.  MyMMANews will have official results and a recap.  You can watch this event absolutely free at AIRY.TV or download their app.  First bell is 8:30 pmRuss Korbul ROC 80 Ring of Combat 80
