Julio Arce Action

It was another action packed night that had fans jumping out of their seats when Lou Neglia’s Ring of Combat came back to the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City, New Jersey with its 59th installment. Lou Neglia and the ROC assembled a top-notch 11 bout fight card including five title fights.

By now you may have heard the news Dana White was in attendance for ROC 59 along with Matt Serra and Gian Villante with their web series, “Looking For A Fight,” where White and company travel the country visiting different fight promotions in search of new talent for the UFC. If it’s talent they’re looking for, they came to the right place. Ring of Combat has distinguished itself as one of the UFC’s top feeder organizations on both a national and international level with over 120 fighters going on to compete inside The Octagon.

For second time, Dana saw first hand the talent that comes out of ROC as he recruited Merab Dvalishvili and Sidney Outlaw to the Octagon with a third high on the radar, Julio Arce.
