The UAW Hall in Lima, Ohio will host IT Fight Series 31 tonight. Headlining the show tonight are veterans of the cage, Sean Barnett (4-8) and Matt Montalvo (6-11). These two will meet in at a catchweight (150lbs) with each in need of getting the victory. Expect these two to bring an all-out war against one another as they close the night out.

In the co-main event, we will see The Ultimate Fighter: China veteran Albert Cheng (3-3) take on Cincinnati, Ohio native Matt Egner (4-5) in a lightweight contest. Cheng is working his way back up the ladder to get back into the UFC after dropping his lone fight within the organization this time last year. Since then the Canadian resident picked up a victory last November at IT Fight Series 29 submitting Matt Brown, no not that one, in the first round.
Similar to his opponent, Egner is riding a two-fight winning streaking coming into what can only be considered the biggest fight of his career. Fresh off a referee stoppage just eight weeks ago, Egner seems to be turning his career around with two straight victories. At one point during his career, he posted four straight losses. Now, with two straight wins he is looking to continue the streak win he faces Cheng tonight. “I’m on my way to whoop this guys ass,” said Egner.
