Mamalis and Morales square off at Front Street Fights 17

 

Boise, ID (3/27/18)— Former Front Street Fights Featherweight champion Vince “Vendetta” Morales will look to extend his five-fight winning streak  on May 4th when he steps into the cage with 12-year MMA veteran Nick “Garfield” Mamalis in the Co-Main Event at Front Street Fights 17: Brokenshire vs. Jones, presented by Bodybuilding.com.

Morales will make his sixth professional appearance at Front Street Fights, his eighth including amateur competition. Mamalis will make his CenturyLink Arena debut.

Morales (7-1-0) earned the FSF Featherweight Title at FSF10 with a knockout victory over Andrew Cruz. Morales vacated the title to move the Bantamweight class, debuting at that weight at FSF15 in January and earning a second-round knockout of Brandon Hempleman. The Ontario, Oregon fighter has earned five consecutive wins by knockout or technical knockout, a streak that stretches back to FSF8 in February 2016.

Mamalis (29-13-0) boasts a mixed martial arts career that dates back to September 2006. The fighter out of Wyoming is coming off a loss at CFFC 69 in December, a fourth-round knockout defeat to Ricky Bandejas, and has alternated wins and losses in his last six fights. The 31 year old appeared on the Main Card at Bellator four times, winning at Bellator 20 and Bellator 23 but losing at Bellator 27 and Bellator 29. Three of Malamis’ last four wins have come via knockout.

Morales and Mamalis are the second fight announced for FSF17, joining the headline fight of Matt “The Stripling Warrior” Jones against Drew “The Eternal Fire” Brokenshire. Jones fights for the first title defense in FSF history.

Doors for Front Street Fights 17 will open at 6pm, with the first fight scheduled for 7pm. The event will be broadcast live on Cable One Channel 72 and streamed on the Front Street Fights YouTube page.
