Zubor and Brooks set for Welterweight Title Fight

Zubor and Brooks set for Welterweight Title Fight to headline Battlefield at the River Rock 2 on October 15th.

The Vacant Welterweight Championship will be decided in a fight between Sean Zubor and Jacen Brooks.  Brooks is a west coast bjj product out of Port Coquitlam B.C., who is now considered one of Canada’s best armatures in his weight class.
Brooks (3-0) has looked impressive in every bout looking very comfortable both on his feet and on the mat.  Brooks is 2-0 in Battlefield, having finished Ayres back in May and winning a split decision
over Dwyer in August.  

Sean Zubor is a member of the Carlson Gracie Team Canada in Maple Ridge B.C. and holds a 3-1 record in MMA.  Zubor is 1-1 in Battlefield with a submission loss to Dwyer and a split Decision Victory over Austin.  Zubor is a strong grappler with some power in his hands, BUT, he is not as an effective a striker as brooks.

When this fight is on the feet, pay attention to which fighter is getting the better of the exchanges.  Based on his impressive outing against a very experienced Dwyer, many expect Brooks to easily handle Zubor on the feet, but you never know.  Zubor will likely look to close the distance and put Brooks on his back, taking brooks out of his comfort zone.  This should be a war and the early favorite is Brooks.
