Combate Americas is set to make its long-awaited return to Mexico City as Rodrigo Vargas and Danny Ramirez are slated to collide in a lightweight main event. Combate 15 will take place Friday at Salas de Armas and will be televised live on Azteca America at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
At Thursday’s weigh-ins, everybody on the card was cleared for combat.
Vargas has been on a tear lately, having won four of his last five bouts. The local fighter will have the crowd fully behind him as he attempts to rebound from a too-close-to-call split decision loss to Marco Antonio Elpidio in January at Combate 10. Ramirez, a former U.S. Marine, is set to continue his winning ways. He’s coming off a thrilling “fight of the night” win over Erik Gonzalez at Combate 11 in February. Both combatants came in identically at 156 pounds.
