Jorge Gurgel Faces Tyler Combs at Strikeforce Ohio

By Damon Martin

It will be an old school Ohio grudge match when Jorge Gurgel takes on Tyler Combs at the upcoming Strikeforce show in Columbus on March 5.

MMAWeekly.com first reported the proposed bout between Gurgel and Combs earlier this week, and have now confirmed bout agreements have been issued for the lightweight showdown.

Sources close to the fighters confirmed the contracts to MMAWeekly.com on Saturday.

Gurgel and Combs apparently have a history that should make the March 5 fight that much more interesting. Gurgel of course owns and operates his school in Cincinnati, OH while Combs trains just north of there just outside of Dayton, OH.

MMAWeekly.com has also been informed that the bout between Gurgel and Combs is expected to make the televised broadcast.
