In the main event, Michah Bender (9-7) will look to snap a two-fight losing streak as he takes on Vision MMA’s Tony Parker (8-6), who looks to start a winning streak after picking up a victory via submission in his last outing. Bender, the former Rocktagon welterweight champion, has dropped two in a row since earning the title with a victory over Mickey Hughes.
Tiawan “The Rising Dragon” Howard (9-9) will return to action in the co-headliner, as the veteran is set to take on Indiana’s Jon Tarrh (14-10) in a welterweight clash. Howard looks to bounce back from a two-fight losing streak, including a loss to top prospect Andrey Koreshkov at Bellator 63, while Tarrh is looking to win for the first time in three outings as well.
The pro card will be rounded out by the pro debut of amateur standout Rob Hanna (0-0, 13-2 am), who will take on Michigan’s Brian Burgan (0-2) in a lightweight battle.
In amateur action, bantamweight champion Brandon Seyler (6-1) looks to defend his title, as he is set to take on top contender Hussein Hmood (5-3) in the amateur headliner. Seyler looks to continue his three-fight winning streak, while Hmood looks for his third victory in a row.
Also in amateur action, four welterweights will vie for the 170-pound title in a mini-tournament, as two separate title eliminators are set to take place. First, Nick Rizos (4-0) and Eric Ocheltree (3-0) square off in a battle of unbeatens, while Sean-Paul Veilleux (4-2) takes on John Merinar (3-2) for the other spot in the final.
“Rocktagon: Elite 20″ is set to take place June 30 at the W.D. Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio.
