Combate Americas To Hold One Night $100,000 Tournament

Combate Americas have announced that on November 11th, they will hold a one-night, eight-man bantamweight tournament in Cancun, Mexico.

Additionally, the quarterfinal and semifinal fights will be three, three-minute rounds, while the championship will be three, five-minute rounds.

There will be two alternate matchups, with the winners on standby in case a tourney competitor is injured. And elbows will be banned over the first two rounds of the tournament.
