By FCF Staff
M-1 Global continues to round out the line-up of the promotion’s upcoming, October 14th event in Phoenix, Arizona, as it has confirmed that veteran welterweight Tom Gallicchio will take on Daniel Madrid.
Gallicchio (16-6) is coming off a third round, submission victory over Chris Curtis at an Xtreme Caged Combat event in May, after being tapped out by Shamil Zavurov while competing for M-1 Global in March. The Rhino Fight Team member is 4-1 in his last five fights.
Madrid (6-2) hasn’t competed since last June, when he was knocked out by Sang Soo Lee at an X-1 event. Prior to that, the jiu-jitsu competitor tapped out Daijiro Matsui with an inverted, triangle choke while fighting for Art of War in September, 2009.
The upcoming “Guram vs. Garner II” event will be hosted by the city’s Grand Canyon University Arena and will feature a rematch between heavyweight champion Guram Gugenishvili and Kenny Garner in the main event. Gugenishvili submitted Garner in their first meeting at M-1 Challenge 21 last October.
The upcoming October 14th event will be broadcast on Showtime and will also feature light-heavyweight champion Vinny Magalhaes taking on challenger Mikhail Zayats.
