Combate Global

Univision Studios in Miami is the home of Combate Global and "La Jaula" has been the site of sensational mixed martial arts in recent weeks. Axel Osuna and Maximilliano Gomez came out swinging last week, with Osuna scoring a second-round TKO. Now, Javier Reyes and Luis Gomez will hope to follow in their footsteps as headliners of Friday's Combate Global fight card. The two featherweights are both experienced and been regulars with Combate Global over the last few years. You can stream the action live on Paramount+.

The Combate Global fight card will also feature Ernesto Ibarra (6-1) vs. Pablo Caballero (8-8) in a bantamweight bout that should be fast-paced. Jharely Reyes will also make her professional debut after making headlines by submitting a male fighter in just 22 seconds as a 17-year-old. She'll take on Melissa Gomez Espinoza, who will also make her pro debut. 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 May 20 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 Gomez to defeat Reyes. Reyes (13-3) is the hotter fighter and enters on a three-fight winning streak, but he certainly hasn't faced the level of competition as Gomez (9-5).

"Luiz Gomez has a win over the UFC's Sodiq Yusuff and has competed with other UFC fighters, such as Chase Hooper and Herbert Burns. Javier Reyes is another tough opponent that he will see this weekend. Reyes has finished his last three fights by either TKO or submission," Gombas told SportsLine. "But I favor Gomez to get it done. I believe he should have the tools to win a decision."
