Future Stars Clash At Cage Combat 30 On FloCombat

FloCombat Cage Combat 30

With a middleweight title fight, the return of a budding star, and much more, the future of Texas MMA is on display this Friday night at Cage Combat 30, streaming live and exclusively on FloCombat from Humble, Texas.

Here’s a look at the biggest reasons to tune in. 


Middleweight Showdown For Gold

With a name like David Punch, fighting is just in the blood.

Tapology’s No. 9-ranked amateur light heavyweight fighter in the state of Texas has won both of his showings inside the cage and is hungry to move his career forward 20 pounds south at Cage Combat 30. With both of his fights thus far ending in thunderous finishes, the buzz is starting to build around the 6-foot-3 leather slinger from the Lone Star State.

Punch brings serious business into the cage, but that only makes him a big target that Shane Sobnosky is eager to slay on fight night.

Sobnosky, who is Tapology's No. 1-ranked amateur middleweight in Texas, has three times more fight experience than his opponent and has found victory in four consecutive bouts, with half of those wins coming via submission. That run has earned him Cage Combat gold, which he will put on the line Friday evening in this high-profile title fight. 

Punch will want to brawl and Sobnosky take things to the canvas, but it will be whose will can be imposed first that will determine victory.


#Pedigree

In MMA, there's no replacement for world-class training and training partners, and light heavyweight prospect Jay Sader certainly has both. 

Fighting out of Houston's Metro Fight Club, Sader works under the tutelage of Saul Solis, who also trains UFC featherweight champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino and former UFC light heavyweight king Tito Ortiz. 

While Sader hasn't fought in three years, there's no doubt he's been soaking in some high-level knowledge and insight while sharpening his tools during the layoff. 

Word on the street is that Sader isn't too keen on letting this fight go past the first round, so don't blink when he steps into the steel cage Friday. 


A Former Champ Returns

It's make-or-break time for Dominick Perez at Cage Combat 30. 

The former flyweight champion has hit a rough patch in his career, losing three straight after a furious 4-0 start that saw him capture Cage Combat gold in the 125-pound division. 

Just 25 years old, Perez has plenty of time to grow and improve, and his losing streak does not have to become a bookend by any means. He'll need to get past the 2-1 Daniel Peet Friday to begin the comeback and right the ship. Can Perez pull it off?

Tune in. Watch the ruckus fly, and catch a glimpse of the future of mixed martial arts on FloCombat.
