Combate Global

Combate Global will return to action on Friday on Paramount+. La Jaula at Univision Studios in Miami will host another thrilling five-fight card. Ramiro Jimenez is a 23-year-old Mexican fighter with plans in mixed martial arts and will return to action for the first time since May of last year in the main event against Devante Sewell. Jimenez is a perfect 5-0 in his career, but Sewell (9-7) will be by far his most experienced opponent yet. You can stream the action live on Paramount+.

The co-main event will feature Ana Palacios (6-1) vs. Bo Hyun Park (4-1) in a women's atomweight bout. Palacios is coming off a second-round submission win in her last fight, while Park is the current Double G women's atomweight champion after back-to-back wins by rear-naked choke. The third bout on the main Combate Global fight card will feature Joey Ruquet (7-4) vs. Joe Murphy (8-5) in a bantamweight battle. The Combate Global fight card begins at 10:30 p.m. ET and you can catch all the action live on Paramount+.

Top Combate Global picks for July 1 fight card

Before tuning in to Friday's Combate Global fight card, you need to see the picks from SportsLine's MMA insider Andrew Gombas. With more than 1,400 selections tracked by the third-party monitoring service Bet MMA, he has shown a 6 percent return on investment for his followers. Over the past two years, his followers have netted a profit of more than $10,000. 

For Friday's Combate Global fight card, Gombas is picking Sewell to score an upset win over Jimenez in the main event. Jimenez is one of the Combate's brightest young fighters, winning his first five fights as a professional and knocking out four of those opponents in the first round.

But he hasn't fought in over a year and doesn't have the same experience as Sewell, who has fought much tougher competition throughout his career. Gombas also expects Sewell to have an advantage on the ground, having won by submission six times throughout his career.

"Ramiro Jimenez has an undefeated record and on paper may look like a better fighter than Devante Sewell," Gombas told SportsLine. "However, Sewell has fought much better competition and I believe he has the grappling edge. I believe Sewell will get it done." Stream the match on Paramount+ now.
