Honor FC returns to Jacobs Pavilion on August 24th with a big professional lineup including three title fights. Matchmaker Scott Corbin released the pro side of things earlier today. The main event will feature Josh Rohler (5-2) versus Carl Deaton III (14-3) for the promotion’s featherweight title. Rohler has won three of his last four fights, most recently getting a first round stoppage at Ring of Combat last June. Deaton is coming in on a three fight winning streak. He too finished his last fight in the first round earlier this year in Michigan.
The professional welterweight title will be on the line in the co-main event as Aaron Highbaugh (7-3) comes from Indiana to meet Andrew Law (11-4). Law has been on a tear since 2015 winning six in a row. He has fought his last two bouts under the Honor FC banner. Highbaugh won his last outing over Tavae Lewis in November at Colosseum Combat XLVII, snapping a three fight losing streak.
Bantamweights Isaiah Chapman (8-3) and Tobiaus Taylor (3-2) will square off for the 135 pound title. Chapman has won back to back fights with first round finishes. Taylor has won three in a row after dropping his first two professional outings.
