Combate Global returns on Friday night with a card set to be headlined by a bout between a pair of welterweights riding three-fight winning streaks. Ivan Castillo meets Marcos Lloreda in the main event of the card, which goes down from Miami and streams live on Paramount+.
After a tough 1-5 run that lasted all of 2018 and 2019, Castillo got his career going in the right direction beginning in 2020. That run has included two wins in the Combate cage. Lloreda went through a similar rough stretch, losing four consecutive bouts from 2015 to 2017. He has since gone 7-2, including winning his Combate debut in his most recent fight.
