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.
