Jeff Pelton vs Eric Bledsoe
A professional lightweight bout between Jeff Pelton (6-2) and Eric Bledsoe (4-2) has been added to the upcoming Fight Night 7 event from BCM Promotions on Sept. 21 in Euclid, just outside of Cleveland.
The event marks the promotion’s first pro/am event, as well as their first event in Cleveland after hosting previous events in Mansfield and Ashland.
Strong Style Fight Team’s Pelton will compete for the first time since last November, when he earned a second round submission over Jake Miller at Caged Thunder 5. The former NCAA champion and Notre Dame College and state wrestling champion has produced four of his wins via stoppage, including three submissions. He’s ranked as the No. 1 pro lightweight in Ohio by Tapology.
West Virginia’s Bledsoe hasn’t competed in MMA since 2016, but he’s stayed active as a pro boxer, compiling a 7-1-1 record. Three of his wins as a pro have come via submission, including his most recent bout against Jeff Holmes at Gladiators of the Cage 21.
