Badbeat 7

Badbeat 7 Weigh-ins free and open to the public

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. The 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)

Featherweight Mike Jasper (5-0) puts his undefeated record on the line as he faces Kyle Bolt (4-1) who is riding a four fight win streak of his own. Jasper 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. Both fighters have vowed to “stand and bang”. Only time will tell who can stay on their feet the longest.

Nick ‘No Limit’ Piedmont (6-3) vs. Sevak ‘The Silverback’ Magakian (12-3)

Two fighters from well renowned gyms face off as Nick Piedmont (6-3) battles Sevak Magakian (12-3) in the Featherweight Division. Piedmont trains out of Alliance MMA with the likes of UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz. Magakian trains alongside the likes of Strikeforce Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Gene LeBell’s Hayastan MMA Academy. Both fighters look to continue their winning ways in 2012 as neither fighter has recorded a loss this year.

Steve ‘The Dream’ Magdaleno (9-3) vs. Jason Williams (4-4)

Featherweight Steve Magdaleno (9-3) has fought literally around the world for other promotions, but there is nothing like fighting close to home. Magdaleno finished his opponent with some devastating elbows in his last appearance in the Badbeat cage and he looks to finish Williams as well at Badbeat 7. Jason Williams (4-4) is searching for his fourth consecutive win that will give himself a winning record overall. To do so he must put a stop to Magdaleno’s own three fight winning streak. Tune in to see who’s streak continues at Badbeat 7.

Chris ‘The Urban Legend’ Culley (16-10) vs. Tom ‘The Grinder’ Gloudeman (6-2)

If the heated exchanges via social networks between these two fighters is any indication, this bout will be a war. Featherweight Chris Culley (16-10) comes off of a submission win over a long time rival at Badbeat 6. Culley now turns his intensity towards Tom Gloudeman (6-2). Gloudeman is on the first losing streak of his career and Culley’s words have added further incentive for him to finish Culley. The war of words has led to an agreement by both fighters that the loser of their bout will donate their show purse to St. Jude’s. A classic case of “put your money where your mouth is”.
