Ring of Combat did it again! Great fights with another sell out crowd. ROC 71 featured two championship fights with one super-fight.
I would also like to say that the main event between Buzukja vs Dooling was one of the greatest Ring of Combat fights ever. Both fighters wanted it but this night belonged to Buzukja as he is the new ROC champion. And though Buzukja walks out with the belt you can’t deny Dooling’s greatness! The are no losers. This is why ROC has over 129 fighters that went on to the UFC with four becoming champions.

Sell out crowd again at Combat at the Capitale for it’s 44th installment. The venue reached max capacity as fans had to be turned away at the door.
Those that were able to get in saw professional kickboxing, amateur kickboxing along with amateur MMA at its best.
Great fights but every bout was evenly matched. Lou says as the promoter and matchmaker, he doesn’t’ care who wins, he cares about evenly matching fighters. Then and only then will they grow and thats the purpose of competition and how you develop from it. You either win or you learn.
Winners from this earned the right to compete at Lou Negia’s Combat at Madison Square Garden on December 6th.
Thanks to the great camps that participate in my events, the talented fighters, the fans for their continued support, my staff, and the ISKA officials who did a great job as always. Headed by ISKA president Corey Shaffer and New York ref in attendance was Tom Sconza.

Another packed house witnessed a great night of spectacular MMA bouts. Technical submissions, devastating KO’s, there was something for everyone at ROC 69.
Fans continually tell me this “this was the best show ever!” I appreciate that but I also want to attribute that to the great fight camps we work with, great matchmaking, and the enthusiastic fans that always support Ring of Combat. It’s a joint effort that makes this all possible
Ring of Combat 70 takes place November 23rd.
