Just when you may have been wondering if EFP promoter Dannon Svab and match maker Scott Corbin would be able to put together a MMA fight card that could match or maybe even top any of the fight cards that they have put together lately, they have managed to come up with another blockbuster. The stage is set once again for some of the most explosive cage action that you have seen in the region in a long time.
This coming Saturday June 11th at Goodyear Hall in Akron, Oh, you will have a chance to see a few match-ups that were made for action. Headlining EFP Cage Madness 43 will be Isaiah Chapman (pro 6-2) vs Jerrell Hodge (pro 2-1). If you know anything about these two fighters you know that this is a match that you don’t want to miss.
26 year old Isaiah Chapman will be looking to recover from a loss he suffered in his last match a year and a half ago. Prior to that match however, Chapman had already won 6 out of 8 professional fights. Before turning pro back in 2012 he already had a fighting record of 12 wins and only 1 loss. He has only lost 3 fights throughout his MMA fighting career: 2 via unanimous decision and 1 via split decision. But his wins include everything from 1st round KOs to a few via unanimous decision.
Jerell Hodge, who is also 26 years old, will be putting his pro record of 2 wins and 1 loss on the line when he steps into the cage to take on Chapman. Hodge will be looking to stop Chapman and extend his win streak to 3 in a row. Hodge hasn’t had as many pro fights as Chapman, but he won both of his pro fights last year. But will it be enough to give him the odds over Chapman who didn’t fight at all last year?
Even before the big match takes place, you will be seeing a few other pro and amateur match-ups that will definitely be worth going and watching. For the other pro matches you will see; Tony Sylvester vs Tony Parker, Andrew Law vs Brandon Suber, Tony Depiero vs Frankie Festa. For the amateur matches will you see; Ahmad Douglas vs Mike Walters (belt title) Ben Meese vs Dornes Butler, Raven Morgan vs Alesha Zappitella, Jack Young vs Brian Hauser, Jon Pipkins vs Richwine, James Branden vs Ted Riedy, Dom Johns vs Joe Wheeler, Robert Johnston vs Mitchell Dotto, Joshua Bailey vs Sean Dinan, Josh Ackley vs Tim Hayes, Jamaal McClain vs Trent Lingo and Damien Perry vs Daren Dunlap.
