Co-main events featuring quick and punishing smaller fighters highlight SportFightXXII: Re-Awakening, a mixed martial arts show at 7:30 tonight in the Rose Garden.
Enoch Wilson puts his SportFight featherweight title on the line against Mike Joy, and each enters with the reputation of wanting to trade blows and grapple.
With Travis Bush having vacated his SportFight lightweight title - citing school and rising weight -Ed Nuno and Lyle Beerbohm are pitted against each other for the championship. It'll be the heavy-handed Nuno's first fight at lightweight, down from welterweight after losing his title to Michael Pierce.
The 11-fight card also includes a matchup between lightweights Tommy Truex and Dave Jansen, who recently tried out for the 'Ultimate Fighter' reality show.
Up-and-coming welterweight Nathan Coy, a former Parkrose High and Oregon State wrestler, should be a highlight in his match with Jerrod Jones.
