MATRIX FIGHTS 8 IS FEATURING SAMMY OROPEZA VS. LEWIS RUMSEY AND WILL MARTINEZ JR. VS. MERVIN RODRIGUEZ SATURDAY SEPT 20!!
Philadelphia, PA – MATRIX FIGHTS (www.MATRIXFIGHTS.com) have announced some big fights for their upcoming ‘Matrix Fights 8’ on Sept. 20, 2013 at the Sheet Metal Union Hall (1301 S Christopher Columbus Blvd).
Bellator MMA fighter Sam “Sammy O” Oropeza (8-2) will go one on one with the always fun to watch Lewis “The Beast” Rumsey (9-10) in a highly anticipated Catchweight bout (200 lbs). The co-main event will feature another Bellator MMA fighter, Martinez BJJ’s Will Martinez Jr. (6-2-1) as he takes on the exciting and very tough Mervin Rodriguez (5-6) in what should be a very action packed Catchweight bout (150 lbs).
“I’m extremely excited to bring the next installment of Matrix Fights to the City of Philadelphia, with Matrix Fights 8”, said Matrix Fights co-owner Jimmy Binns Jr. “We have Sammy Oropeza, who is still contracted by Bellator taking on Lewis Rumsey. Rumsey is a beast, hence the nickname, and doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit’. And of course Sammy O always brings a high energy packed house to the events.”
Sammy Oropeza is currently on a 3-fight win streak, not going past the second round in either of them three fights. His most recent victory came at Bellator MMA 95, where he defeated his opponent via 2nd Round TKO, with a broken foot even. He has fought for big MMA companies such as Bellator MMA and Strikeforce (Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva) and is considered one of the top Middleweights on the East Coast. “I believe Lewis Rumsey is a very dangerous fighter, and has double the amount of fights I have. I respect his talent and ability which is making me train that much harder.”, said Oropeza. “I don't need to tell you how I think this fight is going to end. All my victories…Continue
