Brawl in the Burgh 15 is almost here, ladies and gentlemen.
And what a fight card this promises to be!
From the very first novice amateur fight of the night right up to our professional main event, Brawl in the Burgh 15 brings the heat.
We expect the Monroeville Convention Center to be absolutely HOPPING Saturday night when the lights go down and the cage door closes.
Needless to say… We’re hyped.
And you should be too. Here’s why:
Stout PGH vs. Indio Dojo: Somebody’s 0 Has Got to Go
This is flat-out insane.
Bridgeville’s Indio Dojo, led by the mastermind UFC vet Danillo Villefort, enters Brawl in the Burgh 15 at an astounding 6-0 with us in 2022. Indio Dojo fighters stepped into the 247 FC cage six times in 2022 –– and all six times they saw their hand raised.
…But Stout PGH has ’em beat.
Led by the fight team coaching dynamic duo of Mike Wilkins and Will Morrill, Stout PGH posted a ridiculous 9-0 record with us so far in 2022.

At Brawl in the Burgh 15, these two juggernaut gyms collide!
Indio’s Tanner Cahill (1-1) faces Stout PGH debut Logan Pryor in an amateur featherweight clash. This fight is just awesome. Both fighters boast strong grappling skills, while Pryor adds in a little Muay Thai experience to boot. Cahill, however, has far more experience and a stronger wrestling base, so it will be interesting to see what happens here.
And, oh yeah, those stakes are pretty awesome, too.
Buckle up when this one’s announced, friends.
These Advanced Amateur Bouts
Look, the entire card is hot-fire. That’s a fact.
But the advanced amateur portion of the card is particularly nuts.
First up, two of the top amateur flyweights in the nation face off as Inflow Martial Arts’ Jalen McIntyre (4-2) takes on Stout PGH’s Mason Deless (5-3).
While Deless boasts the experience advantage here, McIntyre’s been more active lately, competing twice already in 2022.
I’ll be honest with you: I have zero idea what to expect in this one. Both guys are phenomenal, well-rounded fighters who are quite possibly already ready for the pro ranks. The winner of this one will establish himself as a force at 125, no doubt.
Then we have Miguel Francisco vs. Chance Grillot.
Shoooooo Bucky, this one is incredible.
You can listen to Francisco himself talk all about this fight on the Pittsburgh Combat Sports Podcast over on 247 Live, of course, but I’ll give you some cliff notes.
Francisco brings a well-rounded, dangerous game to the cage, and he most recently submitted Awstin Martinez in under two minutes at Brawl in the Burgh 14. Here’s the thing: Grillot is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt, so don’t expect things to go quite like that Saturday night at the Monroeville Convention Center.
If this one hits the ground, expect to see one of the most high-level displays of grappling in an amateur bout you’ll find anywhere on earth.
If it doesn’t hit the ground, Grillot showed off some vastly improved striking and some impressive kicks in his most recent victory over Anthoney Morris at Brawl in the Burgh 13, too. Wherever this fight goes, it’s going to entertain you. Fact.
Chaka Worthy vs. Calvin Harbaugh
It’s the main event and it rules.
This pro catchweight bout (140 pounds) features two finish-first fighters hungry for another victory.
Worthy, the younger brother of now-retired UFC vet and local legend Khama Worthy, hasn’t fought in Pittsburgh since 2021 –– and he expects his homecoming to be a sweet one.

He’s lost three straight fights, moving his record to 4-6 in the process, and he wants nothing more than to get back on track in front of his Steel City faithful Saturday night at Brawl in the Burgh 15.
…But Harbaugh wants none of that.
Formally a championship-caliber 5-0 amateur, Michigan’s Harbaugh sits at 4-4 in his pro career. He’s won two in a row though, both by first-round finish, proving he’s as dangerous and hungry as ever.
There’s no doubt he wants to do one thing and one thing only: Shock the hometown crowd and send Worthy’s fans home disappointed.
Can he do it?
We’re about to find out.
