ATT do it with Fight Time, Jackson’s MMA do it with JMMAS, now Bombsquad are getting in the business of putting on their own shows with Gladius Fights 1 September 22nd. These shows are respected as a means of giving the up-and-comers experience, an especially hard task for Bombsquad considering their gym in Ithaca is somewhat far from Atlantic City and other such areas with legal MMA shows. Gladius 1 takes place at the Cattaraugus Sports Complex in Irving, land owned by the Seneca Nation Indian tribe. The show will be websteamed live on GoFightLive.
Eddie Fyvie faces Don Carlo-Clauss in the main event. Fyvie has gone 1-1 in the past two years for a total record of 9-5, his statistical weakness being to strikers with three of his five losses being by KO/TKO and the other two by decisions. Carlo-Clauss had a prominent win over Jacob Kirwan in Bellator in March but suffered a unanimous decision loss to Mike Campbell in August. Now both of these fighters look to get back some of the hype they had as they face off.
