OK Colorado fight fans…so apparently, Sparta Combat League’s (SCL) heard that the crowds wanted to see some serious stand up fighting. Well…lucky for Colorado that “Phenoms” takes place on Saturday and this card is all about stand up fighting. If you like to see two people stand up and play rock’em sock’em robots….then don’t miss Saturday at the Grizzly Rose. Sparta is focused on bringing back Muay Thai to the
Headlining this card will be a Muay Thai fight between none other than the long lanky and always colorful, Garrett “The Pink Panther” Culpepper as he takes on the eager to please scrapper in Charlie “Hollywood” Brown in what surely will leave the place screaming for more Muay Thai. Both of these guys are exciting to watch and from the pre-fight banter…both of these guys are looking to put on the best show possible.
Thanks to organizations like SCL, Invicta and the UFC, women’s MMA is absolutely skyrocketing right now. Thankfully so because if you’ve never seen the ladies brawl…it is absolutely a sight to see! Make no mistake about it, the ladies are ALWAYS some of the best fights on ANY card and this Examiner will go on record to say that women’s MMA fighters consistently show some of the most incredible heart and determination in all of combat sports. SCL realizes that people go absolutely INSANE when the girls come to fight and Saturday will be no exception. Phenoms will feature the beautiful ladies of Colorado’s MMA scene when notable Shannon Sinn takes on Latrishia Braidenbach in a 125 lb SCL Title fight that will be a screamer too. Not to be outdone in any way, we will also see the other two beautiful Muay Thai warriors, Amanda Haller and Whitney Gunderson as they will tangle in a 135 lb match-up that will leave you craving more women’s fighting, and since this is a Muay Thai fight, the crowd will be on their feet for sure. DO NOT MISS THESE LADIES FIGHT!
We also get to see 2 Colorado crowd favorites in Todd “Captain America” Meredith and the always entertaining Michael Matthews as these two class acts will go to war at 190 lbs. If you’ve never seen these two guys fight….you are in for an absolute treat. Both of these guys are crowd favorites because these guys BRING IT every single time they fight and both guys are usually up for Fight of the Night honors.
