New, 6 comments

Fight Lab Promotions will present a great night of MMA action on Saturday, June 27th at the Grady Cole Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event, titled Misery Loves Company 2, will feature 6 amateur, and 4 professional bouts. Next week we'll list the entire lineup. One of the fights that has many in the Charlotte area talking is a matchup between two exciting lightweights: "The Rockstar" Keith Richardson (1-0 Professional; 4-0 Amateur) from Rock Hill, South Carolina vs. "El Dingo Loco" Joseph Carroll (1-0 Professional; 8-2 Amateur) from Claremont, North Carolina. Keith Richardson (25 years old)has shown a propensity for finishing fights, winning nearly all of his matches by submission.

Likewise, Carroll (25 years old) has also developed a reputation as a fighter that doesn't leave things in the hands of the judges. Joseph has also won most of his fights by submission and recently competed in the Jiu-Jitsu World Championships in Long Beach, California. This should be an exciting matchup between two lightweights that each have a reputation for making exciting fights. If you're within driving distance of the Charlotte area, this will be a great show to attend. I know that some of our readers have never seen live MMA so this is a great opportunity to go and see some quality local fighters. We'll have more information about this event in the coming week.
