WFC is set to showcase some of the TOP talent on the Southern East Coast. The main event will feature Marcus Andrusia and Justin Martin battling it out in the 155lb weight division.
“It is an honor to be the main event for WFC right here in Baton Rouge. I never imagined when I first started training that a small town country boy like myself would be the main event of a nationally recognized promotion. I have been training hard at Gracie United; I feel great I’m ready to put on a show. I’m pretty sure all of Livingston Parish will be there cheering. Everyone one I run into says they are coming. Marcus and I have never been in a boring fight. When the bell rings it’s going to be fireworks. So they will definitely get their money’s worth. I’m ready to bring the win home to Walker. See y’all in the Cage. God Bless”- Justin Martin
In a special attraction: William Carroll, out of Gladiator Sidell will be battling Gage Duhon, out of Universal Martial Arts for the WFC 155lb Amateur Title!
“I’m thankful for this great opportunity and look forward to fighting for the WFC title on my birthday and bringing the 155 title to it’s rightful home UNIVERSAL MARTIAL ARTS!” -Gage Duhon
