From Gavin Teasdale‘s MMA debut and beyond, the debut/one-fight/two-fight competitors on this card bring a pedigree far beyond their experience level. There’s every reason to think one of those matchups could steal the show.
Then you look farther up the card and, uhh … One of these advanced amateur fights might just take home Fight of the Night honors, too. Good luck deciding which it’ll be.
First up, let’s talk about that golden opportunity.
Undefeated 247 FC bantamweight champ Cam Allgeier (6-0) faces another spotless super prospect in Renegade Combat Club’s Hunter Starner (6-0) at Brawl in the Burgh 10.
This fight is just bonkers, friends.
Allgeier has blown through everyone on his way to capturing the 247 FC amateur bantamweight strap, and Starner’s traveled an identical path, winning gold for Virginia’s Cagezilla FC and Rocket Combat Sports promotions. A powerful wrestler with elite athleticism, Starner hopes he’s the answer to the so-far-unsolvable Allgeier puzzle.
But Allgeier’s been here before.
In just his last bout back in August at Brawl in the Burgh 8 (FREE full fight video here), Allgeier faced the 5-0 Asher Frederick for the strap.
Minutes into the fight, Allgeier trapped Frederick in a triangle, and the bout was sealed.
This one is going to light up the Monroeville Convention Center. That’s a guarantee.

As if that isn’t enough…
If you’ve followed 247 Fighting Championships for any amount of time, you know the name Edwin Vera. And if you know the name Edwin Vera, you probably know an Edwin Vera fight means one thing: All-out chaos.
Vera (3-2) forged his entire career to date inside the 247 FC cage, and he’s had precisely zero boring or lackluster fights during that run. While he’s dropped his last two in a row, there’s no doubt Vera is as dangerous as they come once the cage door closes. Training at the Mat Factory with Isaac Greeley and company, we have a feeling Vera will be dialed in and ready to bounce back Feb. 5.
And he better be.
His opponent, Awstin Martinez (5-5), is an absolute firecracker. He’s finished his opponent in all five of his victories (four KOs, one submission), most recently knocking out Fabian Tapia-Villa via head kick … in just eight seconds.
Something tells us this fight won’t last long. Blinking is not recommended when these two take the cage.
