In Saturday night's GC "GLOVE UP" main-event match against Kadzhimurrat Bestaev at the Soboba Sports Complex in San Jacinto, CA. Mikey Gomez took the title in the second round by submission. Tough customer, Kadzhimurrat, gave Mikey a run for his money and Gomez says,

"It was tough fight, with him being 6'6 and all. It took me a bit to find my range.
I'm glad I got the submission win in the second rd. everything went according to plan. I'm happy to be the new Gladiator Challenge middleweight champ."

Other fight night highlights included...A brutal opening bout between 155-Pound amateurs Raul Salas and Angle Gomez. These guys weren't playing around. After 3 full rounds of non-stop action, Salas took the win by unanimous decision.

After opening with the Salas/Gomez slug-fest, the second match was even more unbelievable when crowd favorite Miguel Cortorreal was knocked out in the first round!
