Rudy McGlothlin vs Joe 'The Caveman' Valadez set for the main event at PYRAMID FIGHTS 1
RUDY MCGLOTHLIN (2-1) BARATA MMA
JOE 'The Caveman' VALADEZ (4-2) WITHOUT LIMITS MMA
SET FOR THE MAIN EVENT AT PYRAMID FIGHTS 1
IT'S FIGHT WEEK!
The first inaugural event Pyramid Fight 1 is locked in for the Main Event in Searcy, AR. January 28 at the White County Fairgrounds. Entering the cage in this Main Event will be professional fighters Rudy McGlothlin (2-1) out of Barata MMA vs Joe Valadez (4-2) out of Without Limits MMA. Both these fighters train at two of the most highly recognized training camps in the state of Arkansas. In fact this whole card is loaded with the most superior training camps in the state.
Joe 'the Caveman' Valadez (4-2) trains out of Without Limits MMA and is no stranger fighting on the big shows. I witnessed 'the Caveman' making his Resurrection Fighting Alliance debut back in August 2015 in St. Louis, Mo., RFA: 28 Andrew Sanchez Vs John Poppie. Valadez fought a 3 round battle Vs Travis Draper (5-2) St. Charles MMA, which ended in a split decicsion via Draper. I personnally had the fight going the other way around. As far as I'm concerned it was a win/win outcome for 'the Caveman'. Valadez next big show would be at Legacy FC 57 back in July 2016. Valadez secured that victory in dominate fashion choking out David Bosnick with less than a minute left in the 1st round. The biggest fight in Joe 'the Caveman' Valadez career, came at a Oklahoma Charity Fight Night when he toed the line with Colton Smith (7-4) Matt Larsen's Combat Fitness Center (TUF & UFC vet) back in April 2016. Unfortunately the Caveman came up short via Unanimous Decision.
