Beyond The Octagon: 5 Fights Worth Watching This Weekend

Fight Time: 32 Niko Price (7-0) vs. Wille Hosch (4-2)

Welterweight (170)

 Undefeated welterweight champion Niko Price will compete in a non-title fight against North Carolina’s Wille “Warhead” Hosch. Price won the title in July of 2015 knocking out Maurice Salmon in the first round. His first defense was against Jose Caceres in April, also a first round knockout. This may be one of your last opportunities to watch Price locally before getting called up to a national promotion.

Ring of Combat veteran Willie Hosch will serve as a very game opponent. Hosch is a explosive wrestler with knockout power in both hands. He will put Price’s chin and take down defense to the test.

You can stream this fight and the rest of the Fight Time 32 card @ www.Fighttimepromotions.com Friday August 12 starting at 8:00 P.M.

CES: 37 Andre Soukhamthath (10-3) vs. Kin Moy (8-2)

Bantamweight (135)

Newly crowned CES Bantamweight champion Andre Soukhamthath puts his title on the line for the first time. The flashy Blackzilian striker is coming off of a highlight reel flying knee KO of Kody Norby in March. 

The Challanger will be Massachusetts native and three time Bellator vet Kin Moy. Moy already holds a unanimous decision victory over Soukhamthath and will look to add CES Bantamweight champ to his growing list of accolades.
