This Saturday, May 28th, the Snoqualmie Casino is the place to be as Combat Games MMA presents another guaranteed action-packed Rumble on the Ridge - the 34th of their long-running MMA series at the casino. On the professional side of the card, there are five bouts scheduled, including a main event clash between two of the top welterweights in the Pacific NW in Taki Ululakepa (6-3-1) versus Joey "Mama's Boy" Pierotti (2-0).
Ululakepa, fighting out of Tacoma under Marcelo Alonso BJJ and Srisuk Muay Thai, enters the bout with 10 pro fights to his name, and is a winner of 4 of his last 6. A well-rounded fighter with heavy hands, Uluilakepa will seek to capitalize on his experience for another win in the COGA MMA cage.
The explosive Pierotti fights with Enumclaw's Combat Sport & Fitness and in 2015 won the COGA MMA Amateur 170 lb title. He turned pro this year, going 2-0 so far with 2 early first round finishes, and looks to make a run at the COGA MMA Pro 170 lb belt, starting with a win over Uluilakepa.
Team Hard Knox fighter, Rob “Iron Man” Cann of Tacoma, will battle Oregon’s Matt Goff in a lightweight matchup. The local favorite Cann turned pro in 2013 and enters on a two-bout win streak, his last win coming over Nathan Thompson at Rumble on the Ridge 33.
Meanwhile, Goff has been a pro since 2008, took a long break between 2009 and 2015, and since returning to the cage last August has been active competing in 7 fights.
Issaquah’s “Flashy” Dex Montenegro and Spokane’s Nathan Thompson will throw down in a pro featherweight attraction. Fighting with Gracie Barra NW, Montenegro turned pro in 2011 and went 6-1 in his first 7 fights. Early this year though, Dex ran into a tough Eduardo Torres who stopped Montenegro in the 2nd. Against Thompson, the talented Montenegro will be looking to get back on the winning track with a strong performance.
Independent fighter Thompson has been active professionally since 2013, winning his first three bouts, but following with a No-contest and then three straight losses. Thompson will be looking to showcase his abilities in the COGA MMA cage and start another win streak for himself.
A pro 145 lb contest is set between Jeremie Montgomery and James “Jimbo” Martin. Team Wise's Montgomery fights out of Seattle and enters with a 2-1 record, winning his last fight in February. Martin is with Combat Sport & Fitness, and is seeking his first pro win since 2012.
Another pro 145 lb contest is on tap with Ivan Salaverry’s Jose Hernandez taking on Spokane fighter by way of Maui, Jordan Mackin. Hernandez won his first pro fight last October at COGA MMA’s Battle at the Bay 13 and looks to remain unbeaten. Mackin’s last pro win came at Rumble on the Ridge 30 but he has dropped two since.
Seven amateur bouts will precede the pro card, including this featured amateur 145 lb clash between ACA’s Brock Eastman of Ellensburg and C3’s Jake Furney of Everett.
Amateurs Jorge Juarez and Jorge Gaitan will battle at 145 lbs.
Livewire MMA's Quinten Roppel takes on White Buffalo Warrior's Aaron Ibanez in an amateur 185 lb contest.
Combat Sport & Fitness fighter Alex Lind will kickbox Bainbridge Boxing's Anisa Ashiba at 135 lbs.
