The night’s main event pairs two of the Midwest’s premier 205-pounders, as Ty Flores battles Erick Murray Jr.

A member of Easton Training Center in Denver, Colorado, Flores takes the mat with monsters on a day-in, day-out basis. Sparring and grappling with the likes of Neil Magny, Curtis Blaydes, and Dominick Reyes, Flores is ready to carve out his own name in the mainstream lens of MMA.

His opponent, Murray Jr., has split his last four bouts—none of which went to the judges’ decision. While Murray Jr. has lost two fights in his seven-fight pro career, both defeats have been against top-tier regional talent. 

LFA Light Heavyweight Champion Julius Anglickas and Contender Series veteran Alton Cunningham are the only two men who have been able to hand Murray Jr. an “L."

Earlier in the evening, highly touted homegrown talent Dustin Lampros returns to the cage to take on professional debutant Colton Minster. Training under Henri Hooft, it should come as no surprise the 25-year-old bantamweight boasts an undefeated professional record.

Another notable name on the main card is athletic renaissance man Derik Scott. The part-lawyer, part-MMA fighter has not competed in MMA since March of 2018. 

The 31-year-old lightweight was featured on the hit NBC series “The Titan Games,” hosted by none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Scott was the runner-up on the inaugural season, losing a competitive head-to-head matchup in the finale episode.

Friday night, Scott will face off against Antonio Atkins.

Youssef Zalal: The Morrocan Cowboy

Youssef Zalal

Donald Cerrone is someone of a folk hero with MMA fans. In his first year with the UFC, Cerrone stepped into the octagon an astounding five times, picking up four performance bonuses along the way. While he’s begun to slow down just a bit in his advanced age, there isn’t a lack of people who have adopted that same mentality.
