I felt an obligation to the fighters and fans to go on with the show - Brett Roberts, CEO BAMMA USA
Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Main Event: Chris Beal (6-0) vs. Shad Smith (12-15-2)
One of Badbeat’s top prospects and undefeated fighter ‘The Real Deal’ Chris Beal (6-0) is on the road to bigger and better things but MMA veteran Shad Smith (12-15-2) is in his immediate way. Beal has lived up to his nickname so far in his MMA professional career by remaining unbeaten and he looks to continue that streak at Badbeat 7. Beal recently remarked, “I respect that Shad wanted to fight me but once we step into that cage I’m going to disrespect him with my hands. I’m too fast, I’m too strong, too hungry right now. The Badbeat cage is my cage, you come in here, you’re going to get the same as everyone else has received. I’m looking to put Shad into retirement.”
Shad Smith has faced some noticeable opponents in his career including Dominick Cruz, Duane Ludwig, Nam Phan, and Jared Papazian just to name a few. He brings his unmatched experience to Badbeat 7 in hopes of detouring Beal’s road to the top. According to Smith, “there’s nothing I haven’t seen already in my career, he is not going to surprise me. As long as I can match his energy early, I can land punches and look for the KO or soften him up for a submission.”
The Badbeat 7 Main Event storyline is young up and comer faces experienced vet but as is often the case, it will come down to a battle of wills and heart. Whoever has the most of both should come away victorious. Will Beal’s road to the top be smooth and uninterrupted or will Smith prove to be the bump on the road and deliver Beal his first professional loss? Find out at Badbeat 7 on October 12th.
Co-Main Event: Mike Jasper (5-0) vs. Kyle Bolt (4-1)
Jasper’s fans keep growing for good reason. Mike has had some of the most exciting fights inside the Badbeat cage; he not only brings the fans, he brings the fight. Bolt will have to overcome the hostile environment outside the cage and match the pace inside the cage if he wants to get a win against the undefeated Jasper. “I’m looking to stand and bang, keep it on our feet and end it early” remarked Jasper.
Kyle Bolt is riding a four fight win streak, all wins coming by submission. Kyle’s confidence is evident in his remarks regarding Jasper as a “stepping stone” in the advancement of his career.” I feel that I will have the strength advantage and the height advantage against Jasper”, added Bolt. Interestingly, Bolt said that he also wants to “stand and bang” and “debut his hands” against Jasper.
If both fighters stay true to their words, the co-main event promises to be an all-out brawl.
