Premier FC 8 Tournament BantamWeight Division Teaser

I wanted to fill you all in on the great work Premier FC has been doing on getting this tournament ready for us.  There are three divisions they are planning on having for us in this first show in the tournament.  There will also be some extra bonus fights that aren't in the tournament.  I am going to focus on this segment on the bantamweights.  Right now they have three fights roaring and ready to go and they are looking for one more 135lb fighter.  If you have less than 2-6 fights total and are licensed ammy then please email the promoter and matchmaker  You read that right Karyn is working double duty on this one!! The tournament is set to take place on April 1st, 2012 at the Log Cabin in Holyoke MA and it is right off the Route 91.

First matchup is between my good friend and co-owner of this website Jeremy "The Boss" Reipold against Adler Jack.  Jeremy is a coach/owner of Team Ravenous and they are located in Greenfield, MA.  He comes into this fight with a record of 3-1 and all of his fights have been with Premier FC.  He is the total package, with a submission, KO and a decision victory.  He is coming off a big grappling match victory that took place in Springfield, MA against Denny "Old School" Siggins.  His last loss came to a currently ranked fighter now turned pro Dat Tran.  He is looking to turn that around and to fight for you all right here at the Log Cabin.  I have not been able to find much about Adler Jack but I heard he fights out of New York and has a record of 2-0.  He is out of Corey Sands camp. This is going to be a fight you don't want to miss!!

The second fight in the bantamweight tournament is between Shayne Stephenson and Nick Pallini.  Shayne comes into this fight with a record of 1-3.  His only win was right here in Western Mass at a previous Premier FC against Dan Wilcox via triangle back in February of last year.  He is looking to snap his losing streak and get the W and to advance to the next round.  Shayne trains in various schools but lately has been independent.  He was training with Cape Cod Fighting Alliance for a while and stopped about six months ago and  he has been trained with Rukus a few times.  His opponent is Nick Pallini.  He is an independent fighter from Pennsylvania and he just loves fighting for Premier FC.  All four of his fights have been for the Premier FC.  His two losses were a decision loss to Jeremy Reipold and a ref stoppage to rear naked choke courtesy of Leon Campbell.  His two submission wins were against Rich Lamontagne and Chris Chartier(Tyson's brother).  This fight is gonna be a great one because both fighters have the same amount of experience and both want to make up for their recent losses have left some bad taste in their mouth so I know they are gonna fight hard!!!

The last fight in the tournament that is completed as of right now takes place between Jim Strife and Carlos Candelori. Both fighters will be making their amateur debut and what better way to start their career out by entering a big tournament.  Strife trains with Pin2Win Combat Academy out of Phoenix New York.  We are told he has excellent standup and is looking to show it off for us all on April 1st.
