A pair of Kentucky fighters will head to Connecticut to make their professional debut later this week as Cody Miskell and Dustin Collins-Miles are slated for Bellator 163.
Miskell closed out his amateur career at 6-2 and is a winner in five straight. His coach Adam Gomez told us that Cody has put in a ton of work to get himself in shape for this fight and they are very excited about the opportunity.
Cody will meet Tyrell Fortune who spent some time with the Blackzilian camp. Fortune is a highly touted prospect who is also making his professional debut. Tyrell is a Division II national champion out of Grand Canyon University as well as a junior college champion at Lackamas Community College in Oregon.
Dustin Collins-Miles of Viper Pit MMA was perfect a an amateur. He started his career last March and has fought four times with three fights under the Warrior FC banner. His most recent fight was a first round TKO stoppage in June.
He meets Ed Ruth who is also making his pro debut after a storied college wrestling career. Ruth is a three time national champion out of Penn State.
