The greater Pittsburgh area's best mixed martial artists take the cage Saturday, Dec. 17, for Pinnacle Fighting Championships (Pinnacle FC) 15.
A premier regional MMA promotion, Pinnacle FC has churned out current UFC stars such as Cody Garbrandt
, Adam Milstead
, and Paul Felder
And the next wave is coming Saturday.
Standout bantamweight and featherweight champion Dominic Mazzotta
returns to action, putting an eight-fight winning streak and his 145-pound strap on the line. During his current run, Mazzotta has finished seven opponents via submission, most recently inducing unconsciousness in his FloCombat debut via guillotine choke.
At 11-1, Mazzotta's sole slip up came against the current UFC bantamweight title challenger Garbrandt in March of 2014. One more win against Solon Staley, the number-one ranked featherweight in South Carolina, Saturday, and it's likely the UFC comes calling his name.
Similarly, one of Pittsburgh's longest-running superstars Mark Cherico
(10-1) returns to action. Like Mazzotta, Cherico has lost just once in his career, and he's bringing a three-fight winning streak to the table Saturday in a heated grudge match against Anthony Castillo, Jr.
