Primal MMA November 3, 2007 – “Noche de los Muertos”

[10/6/2007] Tijuana, Mexico- In the United States we have Halloween. In Mexico at the same time of the year a similar holiday is celebrated, “Dia de los Muertos.” On Saturday November 3rd the weekend’s festivities will be highlighted by Primal MMA’s return to Tijuana, appropriately named, “Noche de los Muertos.”

In the main event home-town favorite Antonio Duarte (8-1) will face Seth Dikin (2-1). Duarte is coming off a victory over Shawn Bias at the last Primal event. Since this victory, Duarte’s celebrity among the local fans has soared as has his dedication and passion for training. Dikin, who trains with Thomas Denny, is also coming off a big win, defeating Angelo Atuna at the Palace Fighting Championships. It will be another difficult test for Duarte when these talented up and coming feather-weights meet to determine who can keep his winning streak alive.

In the light-heavyweight division, MMA newcomer Zebulon Beatty will fight Brad Peterson (2-0). Beatty has a very imposing physique and a good wrestling pedigree, earning all-American status twice in highschool. Now training with Chutebox USA, he is eager to make an impact in his MMA debut. His opponent, Peterson, trains in Arizona with Joe Riggs and brings with him an unblemished record.

Light-weight knock-out artist Bryan Joplin (5-0) will be challenged by his toughest opposition yet when he meets team Quest veteran David Gardner (9-7). Joplin, who trains with Erik Paulson’s Combat Submission Wrestling, has stopped 4 out of his 5 opponents.
