Pittsburgh vs. Pittsburgh?

Yep. And this fight is actually way better than that, too. A crosstown rivalry always adds a little heat, but with these two?

Buckle up.

Saturday, April 15, at the Hollywood Casino at the Meadows, top amateur middleweight prospects Ken Burrs (Indio Dojo) and James Lledo (Stout PGH) throw down during 247 Fighting Championships: Brawl in the Burgh 16.


Burrs and Lledo both enter the bout at 1-0. They both boast the lethal combo of high-level collegiate wrestling plus elite MMA training.


Their first fights? Yeah, both guys dominated their opponents.

(Don’t believe me? Watch Burrs’ fight right here and watch Lledo’s right here.)

Now, Burrs and Lledo meet in the center of the cage to decide who’s the baddest in the ‘Burgh.

Like I said… Buckle up.

Making this fight even better, both fighters recently joined Luke Payson on MMA Fancast to break down the fight, this unique Pittsburgh vs. Pittsburgh dynamic, their futures, and much more.

Get hyped for this one, friends. April 15 will be here before you know –– and tickets are moving quickly. You don’t want to miss these two monsters throwing down, do you?
