Colosseum Combat kicks off local MMA in the Ohio Valley region with the first event of 2017. Colosseum Combat XXXVII is set with a headlining bout between Tom Shoaff (8-3) and Tyler Combs (15-13). On the amateur side of the card, Kyle VanCamp (8-4) will take on Keair Ross (4-0) in a lightweight title fight.
Tom Shoaff (8-3) will be on the hunt to snap a two-fight losing streak as he meets Tyler Combs (15-13). Combs will too be looking to snap a two-fight losing skid. Combs defeated Daniel Head at Colosseum Combat XXXI and this will be his fourth appearance in Kokomo. Shoaff will be making his promotional debut.
Reggie Merriweather (9-10) will look to continue his success in the CC cage as he meets Jameson Sharp (3-1). Sharp started his pro career with three straight wins before losing a tough split decision over Joe Lile Jr. Merriweather is 3-1 for Mark Slater and is coming off an August win over Anthony Morgan.
Kyle VanCamp (8-4) will return to action after nearly a year off to meet undefeated Keair Ross (4-0) for the promotion’s lightweight amateur title. Ross has been impressive to start his early career racking up three wins in 2016. VanCamp has won back to back fights leading up to this title fight.
