Dom Steele (13-9) has a new opponent for his first post-UFC bout, as he’ll now take on Ohio native Rocky Edwards (10-7-1) in the main event at Colosseum Combat XLI.
The Vision MMA product Steele’s last five bouts have come under the UFC banner, but he will compete back on the regional scene here. It’s not clear whether he has received his UFC release just yet, but he was cleared to find fights outside of the organization.
Steele posted a 1-4 record in the Octagon, with his lone win coming via a devastating knockout due to a slam at UFC Fight Night 79 in 2015. Most recently, he dropped a decision against Luke Jumeau at UFC Fight Night 110 in June.
Edwards is a big-show veteran himself, having competed against Rob Hanna at Bellator 78 in 2012. The Ohio native has just two bouts in the past two years – a loss against Sean Brady at CFFC 56 last February, and a win over PJ Cajigas at Warrior Nation Fight Series 46 in June.
Colosseum Combat XLI takes place at the Kokomo Event & Conference Center on Oct. 7. Check out the current lineup for the event below.
