Ten bouts set for SUPERKOMBAT’S first World Grand Prix event of the year

The Polyvalent Hall situated in Mihail Sadovenu St., Resita, Romania plays host to SUPERKOMBAT’s first World Grand Prix event this weekend.

While officials have a ten bout line-up in store for Kickboxing fanatics, for the first time in the promotion’s storied history, Mixed Martial Arts bouts will be contested under the SUPERKOMBAT banner as well.

The promotion’s trademark tournament, of course, will take the spotlight, but this time around, it will be four up-and-coming Light Heavyweights looking to impress the masses.

The main event pits a match-up between Brice Guidon and Raul Catinas at Heavyweight. France’s Guidon has plied his trade in GLORY and K-1 with a plethora of experience under his belt. Catinas, meanwhile, hopes to capture his second tourney honor under the promotion’s flag after winning the SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix II tournament title in 2012.

Also at Heavyweight, SUPERKOMBAT staples Catalin Morosanu and Sebastian Ciobanu will lock horns in the co-main event.

The prelims will be shown LIVE on Sport.ro in Romania, from 8:30pm EEST (Local Time) to 9:00pm EEST (Local Time).

The main card, on the other hand, will be broadcasted LIVE on Sport.ro in Romania, from 9:00pm EEST (Local Time) to 0:00am EEST (Local Time) and Eurosport, from 8:00pm CEST (Central European Summer Time) to 11:00pm CEST (Central European Summer Time).
