Triller Fight Club Fills Lineup of Triad Combat 2 in Houston on Feb. 26
Triller Fight Club is moving full steam ahead to put on another spectacle between boxers and MMA fighters.
In December, the organization announced that Triad Combat 2 would be staged in February. Per a press release on Thursday, this show will be held inside the Toyota Center in Houston on Feb. 26. Headlining the mixed-rules event, as previously reported, is a heavyweight clash between Junior dos Santos and Kubrat Pulev.
The ruleset for this fight card, established at Triad Combat 1 in November, mixes boxing and MMA while not allowing elbows, knees or kicks. These shows will pit boxers against MMA fighters, with the boxing team captained by Shannon Briggs and the MMA fighters coached by Quinton Jackson. As a result of the rules in place, these matches are not considered professional boxing or MMA bouts. The round lengths will vary from fight to fight, and the dos Santos-Pulev tilt will take place across nine rounds.
In addition to the co-main seven-rounder at cruiserweight between Vitor Belfort and Chad Dawson, four more fights have been added to likely complete its billing. Representing MMA on the undercard will be Joe Schilling, Jimmie Rivera, Sam Sicilia and Claudia Zamora. Against them will be Armin Mrkanovic, Samuel Teah, Dakota Linger and Stephanie Han, respectively.
