Combate Americas announced an upgraded, 10-bout lineup for its very first live television Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event of 20-19 that will take place in Auditorio del Estado at Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico on Friday, Feb. 8, live on DAZN.
In the previously announced light weight (155 pounds) main event, undefeated, 24-year-old Cub Swanson-protége Rafa “Gifted” Garcia (8-0) of Palm Springs, Calif., USA via Mexicali will put his excellent record at stake against 29-year-old, hard-hitting rising celebrity Edgar “Bad Boy” Escarrega (5-2-1) of Ensenada, Baja California.
Originally intended for 1-1 bouts, the previously announced flyweight (125 pounds) match up between Jenny Favela (0-0) of Mexicali and Yasmine Jauregui (0-0) of Tijuana, Baja California was fought after Favela withdrew from the commitment.
In addition, Misael Iñarritu (6-2) of Phoenix, Ariz., USA via Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico was forced to draw from his scheduled light weight match up with Alex “Bam” Velasco (7 3 ) of Ensenada. Velasco will currently take on Javier “Blair” Reyes Rugeles (8-2) of Las Vegas, Nev., USA via Bogota, Colombia.
