 [Press Release from Gladius]

 HAMBURG, New York (Sept. 21, 2012) -- New York fight fans flocked to Buffalo Wild Wings on Friday night to catch their first glimpse of the fighters involved in the inaugural fight card for Gladius Promotions.
Saturday night’s event at the Cattaraugus Sports Complex in Irving, N.Y., will hopefully be the first of many professional MMA promotions to fill arenas in the Empire state as Gladius Promotions has its sights set on becoming the No. 1 supplier of mixed martial arts action in all of New York.
Veteran fighters Don Carlo-Clauss ( 9-7 TEAM BOMBSQUAD ) and Eddie Fyvie ( 9-5 SPA CITY BJJ ) both showed up on time and made weight for their main event match up at 155 pounds. The pair has over a decade of combined experience inside the cage and even though they both reside in New York, they’ve both almost never competed without crossing state lines. It’s a striker-versus-grappler showdown that’s sure to keep the crowd on the edge of its seat.
Co-main event combatants Mike Winters ( 6-2 TEAM BOMBSQUAD ) and T.J. Sumler ( 3-4 WNY MMA ). saw a lot of support from their fans at Buffalo Wild wings where the official Gladius Fights after party will go down promptly following the fight card on Saturday evening.
All but four fighters made weight the first time they stepped on the scale, but each of the four to miss their mark made the proper adjustments in the hour allotted by the Seneca Nation of Indians Athletic Commission. Featherweight fighter Matt DiMarcantonio found losing his fight shorts to be a quick fix and his opponent, Desmond Green, was able to lose 0.4 pounds by simply taking off his gold chain and a little jewelry.
Fight night is fast approaching and all the action goes down in less than 24 hours!
