  • Gates open tomorrow at 6 PM for NorCal Combat 5. The fights will start tomorrow night at 7 PM at Farmers Hall located at the Butte County Fairgrounds.
    Adam Sharrock, the newly promoted spokesperson for NorCal Combat, is extremely excited for the fighters on the card tomorrow evening. “My feeling is that we couldn't have put together a better card to end the year. We have a lot of young fighters itching to make a name for themselves, so what a tremendous opportunity for all of them to showcase their talents in front of what should be a sellout crowd.”
    This is not an event that you’ll want to miss! Come support all the local fights and witness the unveiling of the new Flyweight title. The Flyweight title match will be between Jesse Davis and Cody Walsh. “Both Jesse Davis and Cody Walsh are 1-0 and have put on very impressive performances in the past. They're both hungry and it will be a battle of wills as much as it'll be a battle of fists,” commented Sharrock.
    The local headliner will be Joe Ruggirello. “He's going up against a newcomer in Alex Fazleev. Rookies are always hungry and looking to make a name, so this should be an impressive bout. Joe is a former Marine who is tough as nails and has a tremendous background at mat wrestling,” said Sharrock. Joe Ruggirello is a Gridley High graduate.
    “Alex is out of a great camp in Team Intense out of Red Bluff, so without a doubt he will bring his A-game. Joe on the other hand has that great amateur wrestling background. His only loss has come from Benito Lopez, who is the current NorCal Combat Bantamweight Champion. Joe can definitely hold his own, which makes this fight that much more interesting.”
