In this upcoming fight, DJ Fuentes doesn’t plan on letting “ring rust” affect him. He’s facing another MMA veteran, who is making his Combate Americas‘ debut. Cee Jay Hamilton is entering into “La Jaula” with a lot of momentum after a submission-win early this year. Hamilton has a 14-7 record with six finishes, including 4 knockouts and 2 submissions.
The fight between these two experienced batamweight fighters will be marked by the similarity of their styles. Fuentes, likes the standing battle, using front kicks to keep the distance and quick entries to connect with his fists; Hamilton, on the other hand, has an explosive style and an incredible athletic ability, which he uses to power-up strikes inside the pocket, and complements all that with very strong Muay Thai techniques.
Can DJ Fuentes vindicate himself after his last loss against “El Goyito”? Or will Hamilton’s momentum propel him to a victory in his Combate Americas debut?
