Brawl in the Burgh 2
Pittsburgh will get its Thanksgiving feast early this year, as 247FC will host “Brawl in the Burgh 2” on Nov. 16 at Printscape Arena in Canonsburg.
The fight card currently features 11 bouts, including three in the pro ranks and a pair of title tilts.
A Bellator veteran, Goss comes in with wins in three of his last four bouts. Most recently, he topped Elijah Cavender at the debut 247 FC event in April. Four of his five wins have come via stoppage, including a submission over Cavender and a knockout over Brandon Seyler last December.
De Jesus looks to win his second regional title, as he topped Ruben Warr to win the Pinnacle FC featherweight title last June. He comes in looking to snap a two-fight losing streak, however, as he has come up short in a pair of chances at the Ring of Combat title in Atlantic City. The LFA veteran has half of his wins via stoppage, including three via knockout or TKO. He’s ranked as the No. 3 pro featherweight in Pennsylvania according to Tapology.
The updated co-main event features UFC and Strikeforce veteran Yuri Villefort (11-7) taking on Joey Munoz (7-5) at a catchweight of 160 pounds.
The 18-fight veteran has previously trained at American Top Team and Blackzilians, but he and his brother Danillo – also a UFC veteran – opened Indio Dojo in Pittsburgh last year. He also trains at JZ MMA in Florida. This wil be his first fight in 15 months since back to back losses under the PFL banner in 2018.
Munoz returns to Pittsburgh from Nebraska for the second time, as he lost a decision against Khama Worthy in the promotion’s debut main event in April. He since lost another bout against 60-fight veteran Alonzo Martinez in May, and he has won just one of his last five bouts after starting off his career with a 6-1 mark.
The third pro bout features unbeaten fighters, as Trenton Zdarko (1-0) looks to hold home court against North Carolina native Cory Crumpler (2-0) in a 195-pound catchweight bout.
In the amateur main event, unbeaten fighters square off for the welterweight title, as Pittsburgh’s Chase Boyde (4-0) takes on North Carolina’s Cody Reece (5-0).
