Jake Smith of the Gracie Barra PDX gym decisively took ownership of the Prime FC title in October at Prime Fighting 8 with a first round TKO of Eric Ramsey. Smith had a lengthy and dominant amateur MMA career before going professional in 2014, rattling off a 5-1 record with 4 finishes and his only loss coming way of decision.

Joey Pierotti of Combat Sport & Fitness in Washington has come out with very strong start to his budding professional career. Only turning professional in February of this year, Pierotti has had a dominant and perfect 4-0 record, finishing all 4 of the opponents he has faced.

These two top welterweights will meet inside the Prime Fighting cage on March 11th with ill intentions of leaving with the coveted title strapped around their waist.

Portland locals will have a chance to meet and greet with champion Jake Smith this Friday, December 16th at the CryoPDX – Portland’s first state-of-the-art cryotherapy clinic – as Smith will be taking their unique recovery options for a test drive from 5pm to 7pm.
