The Missouri-based ShoFIGHT MMA promotion will be holding its first professional event ever next month.
With nineteen amateur events under their belt, ShoFIGHT has put together an impressive card for their inaugural pro fight card. Among the lineup are MMA notables like Shonie Carter, Karen Darabedyan, Lyle Beerbohm, Marcus Aurelio, Roli Delgado, Aaron Rosa, Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennet and Drew Fickett, to name a few.
At the top of the card, former UFC fighters Shamar Bailey and Karo Parisyan will be squaring off to contest the promotion's vacant welterweight title. Those two will be supported in the co-main event by another pair of Octagon vets in Kendall Grove and Terry Martin, who will do battle for the vacant middleweight strap.
