Lindsey Steps Up: Challenger Found for Gil Isabel's Extreme Fighting Championship 5 'Undisputed' Title Defense
A challenger has been found for EFC Heavyweight Champion Gil "Blackout" Isabel's main event fight on Saturday, November 24 at Extreme Fighting Championship 5 "Undisputed" at the Police Athletic League of Parsippany, New Jersey.
The undefeated Isabel (4-0-0) will make his first title defense against the athletically gifted Demetrius Lindsey (1-1) of Northern Fist Southern Cross in Reading, Pennsylvania.
Known for his toughness, 22-year-old Lindsey is a superb grappler, and will have the size advantage over the champion. He stands 6 feet 4 inches and weighs in at 260 lbs.
The extremely popular Isabel, who stands 6 foot 1 inch, weighs in at 245 lbs., is an exceedingly agile and strong overall fighter. He has submitted his last few opponents, but also has the kind of punching power that gets people's attention.
"Both these guys are good on the ground and on their feet, so this fight could go a lot of ways," said event promoter Hani Darwish of Extreme Fighting Championship. "Plus at this size, either one of them could end it any second with a strike. It's a very strong matchup and we're proud to be able to bring it to the EFC fans in New Jersey. Not a lot of people will get in the cage with Gil Isabel, so I send my respect to Demetrius for his fighting spirit."
As has become the EFC hallmark, the undercard will feature many of the area's most talented warriors in bouts matched with an eye on maximizing excitement. The entire bout line-up will be announced in the coming weeks.
