Kokomo, Indiana – We are on scene here at the National Guard Armory for Colosseum Combat XXXI. Headlining the event will be a main event bout between Chris Dunn (9-5) and Lloyd Carter (8-7). Originally the bout was scheduled to be for the promotion’s bantamweight title but Carter came in a couple of pounds heavy.
From what we were told Carter declined to use the extra time allotted to him to cut the extra weight. The commission was forced to make this a non-title fight since he did not make the required weight limit. “All weighd in 133.8 … time to re-fuel and kill this sucka,” Dunn wrote.
Aside from that discrepancy all eleven fights are scheduled to take place. The event features six professional bouts that include Dustin Parrish, Sean Fallon, Daniel Head, and Reggie Merriweather to name a few.
Tonight professional action is sanctioned by the Indiana Gaming Commission under the supervisor of Andy Means. The amateur portion of the card will be overseen by the MMAC sanctioning body. We will be bringing you all of the coverage as it happens right here on BluegrassMMA.com. Additionally, you can join in the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #CC31.
