February 21st – Kokomo, IN
Mark Slater’s promotion returns to Northwest Indiana, and in a rarity for local events, more pro bouts (6) are on tap for this card than amateur contests (5).
The headliner features a pair of familiar faces squaring off for the bantamweight title, as Chicagoland fighter Lloyd Carter (8-7) faces Cincinnati’s Chris Dunn (9-5) at 135 pounds. Dunn, who is a ridiculously big fighter for the weight class, has won 2 of 3 fights and is 7-2 in his last 9. Interestingly enough, his last 3 losses have all come in Pittsburgh. Carter has lost 2 of his last 3, but the Team Colon fighter is one of the top talents in Indiana.
In the co-feature, “The Ultimate Fighter 9” veteran Daniel Head (11-9) is set to take on Ohio’s Tyler Combs (14-11). Keeping with the Ohio vs. Indiana theme, Ohio’s Reggie Merriweather (5-5) will take on Indiana’s David Love (14-14-1).
