Cut Throat MMA Live on GFL

Oct 3, 2011
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Cut Throat MMA invades Aurora, IL, with the third installment of its Invasion series with Invasion 3, live from La Sierra at 9:00pm ET on Friday, October 7, 2011. For the first time in Cut Throat MMA history, three championship belts will be on the line at Invasion 3.

In the main event of the evening, current Cut Throat MMA Lightweight Champion Eric "The Red" Rasmussen (2-1-3) defends his title for the first time against #1 Contender Dan "The North Avenue Beach Bad Boy" Ortiz (2-1). Rasmussen, fighting out of Uflacker Academy and Degerberg Academy, has not fought since knocking out Rich Molina to win the Lightweight belt back at Brawl @ Bourbon St in February. Ortiz, representing Patriot Boxing, vaulted himself as the #1 contender by submitting then undefeated Chad Fredericksen via first round kimura at Cut Throat MMA's Supremacy 3 in May.

In the night's co-main event, Carlson Gracie Team MMA's Danny "The Machine" Morales (8-2) takes on H.I.T. Kickboxing's Martyn Jimenez (8-2-2) for the vacant Cut Throat MMA Welterweight title. Former champ Ryan Storey recently turned pro and vacated the title, so Morales, coming off of a TKO and a decision victory in his last two Cut Throat fights, looks to bring the belt back to Carlson Gracie Team MMA. Standing in his way is Indiana's jiu-jitsu prodigy, Martyn Jimenez. Jimenez trains with Carlos Diaz brown belt Jacob Henson at H.I.T. Kickboxing and Henson Jiu-Jitsu.

In what would be the main event at any other card, the third title fight of the evening, top contenders Jason Ignacek (8-1) and Nick "Kamp Karp" Flemm (5-2) battle for the recently vacated Cut Throat MMA Featherweight Championship. Ignacek, out of Team One MMA in Tinley Park, IL, has moved his way up the Cut Throat ranks and is ready for his shot at Cut Throat gold. Patriot Boxing's Nick Flemm has one of the sickest left hands in the local MMA scene, and Ignacek has been known to wow the crowd with some heavy slams. Only time will tell who will be leaving the cage wearing the gold.

Also on the card, Carlson Gracie Team's Tom Shoaff looks to improve his record to a perfect 10-0 against East Aurora High School wrestling coach/Full Mount MMA fighter Tim "Skillet" Young. Another undefeated fighter, Kyle "Big Sexy" Symes takes on Patriot Boxing's Pat O'Connor in a heavyweight showdown.
