Main Card Bouts
Steve ‘The Dream’ Magdaleno (9-3) vs. TBA
Steve ‘The Dream’ Magdaleno (9-3) will fight in the Featherweight Division. Magdaleno looks to continue his 3-fight win
streak, all by knockout.
Mike Jasper (5-0) vs. TBA
Jasper’s fans keep growing for good reason. Mike has had some of the most exciting fights inside the Badbeat cage; he
not only brings the fans, he brings the fight. Mike’s opponent will have to overcome the hostile environment outside the
cage and match the pace inside the cage if he wants to get a win against the undefeated Jasper.Chris ‘The Urban Legend’ Culley (16-10) vs. Tom ‘The Grinder’ Gloudeman (6-2)
Chris Culley just completed an intense and personal battle in his last Badbeat appearance. He now steps into a new one
against Tom Gloudeman. These two fighters have already exchanged barbs through their social media accounts. The
heat between the two will boil over at Badbeat 7.
Scott ‘K.O.’ Catlin (8-5) vs. Harold Lucambio (8-8)
Scott Catlin is hungry for some action after being left alone at the cage door when his opponent refused to fight him just
hours before their scheduled fight at Badbeat 6. Harold Lucambio is coming off a second round TKO victory, the first
striking victory of his pro MMA career, in his last fight. Will the heavy-handed power of Catlin overcome the ground
superiority of Lucambio? Find out at Badbeat 7.
