Luke Zachrich, a 12-2 pro, whose experience reached The Ultimate Fighter and Bellator MMA, will do battle with Justin Gamble, who has made a big name for himself in the Kentucky area.

Shamar Bailey, UFC veteran, locks horns with Tony Parker, whose last 7 victories all come by submission.

Tommy Hayden, a veteran of both the UFC and AAMMA, takes on the gritty M-1 Global vet Joshua Thorpe, in what will be Thorpe’s fourth fight in AAMMA in just over nine months.

In addition, Absolute Action MMA has multiple amateur title fights scheduled, in addition to an unprecedented FIVE women’s amateur MMA bouts.
