GLADIATOR CHALLENGE WELTERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BELT ON THE LINE AS GLADIATOR CHALLENGE PRESENTS

“RETALIATE”

Wendover, Nevada — Gladiator Challenge (GC), one of the longest-running MMA promotions in existence, proudly presents “RETALIATE” on Saturday, August 29, live from the Wendover Nugget Casino in Wendover, Nevada. The main event will feature Jake “The Snake” Paul, defending his GC Welterweight World Title Belt against Lee Doss in an exciting rematch. Also showcased will be former UFC fighter Andy Wang. Gates open at 5:00 p.m. with fights beginning at 7:00 p.m., as GC has scheduled at least action-packed bouts (fight card subject to change).

The much anticipated main event will feature current GC Welterweight Champion, Jake “The Snake” Paul (13 – 13), defending his title belt in a rematch against Lee Doss (12 – 9). The two squared off this past June, in a match in which Paul TKO’d (punches) Doss, finishing him in the second round.

Controversy brewed after the fight, as questions arose regarding Paul’s personal relationship (supposed training partner) with the fight’s referee. Those rumors have since been squelched, as both fighters are ready to get it on.

“This guy is a joke […] I beat him silly June 13th and I will beat him silly again August 29th,” said Paul.

Paul is a well-rounded fighter who is equally liable to knock out his opponent as he is to submit them. He’s won four of his past six fights, and will be looking to push his win streak to three with a victory.

Doss is a striker that is willing to trade blows with anyone in the business. He sports an impressive knockout record of eight (T)KOs in his 12 wins (66.67%).

Former UFC fighter Andy Wang will also be featured at the event, which will again be taking place at the Wendover Nugget. The doors open at 5:00 P.M., with fights beginning at 7:00 P.M.
