Another season of Combate Americas action kicks off next month in downtown Los Angeles.

Team Alpha Male prospect Erick Sanchez (7-2) will face off against Puerto Rico's Tito Cruz (5-2) in the main event of the Aug. 11 event, which will air live on UFC Fight Pass.

Sanchez, whose resume includes victories in Bellator and World Series of Fighting, has won three in a row, most recently a first-round submission against Mike Segura at Combate Americas' April 18 event. Cruz, fighting out of San Diego's Team Hurricane Awesome, looks to shake off a submission loss to Emilio Chavez at the same event.
