Welterweight prospect AJ Dobson (2-0) is set to return next month, as he is set to take on Marcus Maulding (3-4) in a welterweight bout at Honor Fighting Championship 1 on Oct. 21 in Akron, Ohio.
Dobson competes in Ohio for the first time since last June, when he made a successful pro debut by topping JT Miller via TKO at RFO: Big Guns 19. He traveled to Nebraska for Dynasty Combat Sports 33 earlier this year, but his bout against Seth Bass was declared a no contest after an accidental eye poke. He followed up with a win under the King of the Cage banner in Iowa, as he topped Willie Whitehead via submission due to strikes in the first round.
Maulding makes his second trek to Ohio from his native Michigan, as he was submitted by Miller at RFO: Big Guns 21 last November. All three of his wins have come via first round stoppage, but he comes in looking to snap a two-fight losing streak.
Another pro bout has also been recently announced, as Tobiaus Taylor (0-2) looks for his first win against Chris Tanner (2-4). Taylor posted a 6-1 record as an amateur, but he has yet to pick up a win as a pro as he competes for the first time since a loss against Patrick Mix last May. Tanner comes in from Indiana looking for his third win, as he competes for the first time since last August.
Previously announced for the inaugural Honor FC card were pro bouts featuring WSOF veteran Isaiah Chapman against Josh Robinson, and Bellator veteran Dustin Kempf vs. Ryan McIntosh.
