Raw Combat, which is taking the place of the now-defunct Hardcore Championship Fighting in the Alberta mixed martial arts scene, announced Friday that the promotion has signed longtime veteran Chute Boxe co-founder Jose “Pele” Landi-Jons.

“He’s my one of my top five MMA fighters,” Raw Combat CEO Dave Feser said in a recent press release. “He’s got true warrior spirit and he’s been in battles with some of the best guys in the world. I’m honored to have him on our show. His camp says he is back and training like a madman. He’s itching to get back into the cage to prove that he’s still one of MMA’s top fighters in the world.”

Landi-Jons was extremely successful during the early stages of his career, notching wins against Matt Hughes and Pat Miletich. He last competed against Brian Gassaway at TKO 32 in February, where he suffered a broken leg after a botched kick to Gassaway’s shin. Landi-Jons now claims that the injury has healed and he is ready to return to action.

Landi-Jons Injury Gives Gassaway Win at TKO 32

Jose Landi-Jons suffered a brutal leg injury in the second round of his main event fight against fellow journeyman Brian Gassaway last night, handing Gassaway his third straight win under disappointing circumstances at last night’s TKO 32: Ultimatum.

The pleasant crowd inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, the same arena where the Ultimate Fighting Championship will travel to in April, saw Landi-Jons score early and often with a barrage of leg kicks in the first round. Gassaway responded with a straight left that momentarily stunned the former Chute Boxe co-founder but Landi-Jons will able to keep his composure and eventually take Gassaway down to the canvas.

Landi-Jons quickly transitioned to side control, where he was able to hold Gassaway down for the majority of the round. After an effective ground and pound attack slowed down to nothing, referee Yves Lavigne opted to stand the two up where they exchanged a mix of kicks and punches until the horn sounded.

The two went right back into exchanging at the start of the second round. However a checked leg kick ended up snapping Landi-Jons ankle, sending him crumpling to the canvas. Gassaway pounced on his opponent and landed a couple of unanswered rights before he noticed that Landi-Jons was injured. Lavigne moved in to stop the fight while Gassaway waved ringside doctors into the cage.

Landi-Jons was taken away on a stretcher but gave a thumbs-up while being wheeled out of the arena that the crowd enjoyed.

Jesse Bongfeldt retained his TKO welterweight title with a late submission of top contender T.J. Grant. The two engaged in an entertaining war that saw each fighter land hard punches standing and pull off aesthetically-pleasing grappling moves and holds throughout the course of the fight.

After coming out guns blazing to start the third round, the champion swung away with wild punches, allowing Grant to score an easy takedown. After landing a pair of right hands on his opponent, Grant ended up getting caught in an armbar and was forced to tap out in the middle of the final round.

Report: Landi-Jons Faces Gassaway at TKO 32

Jose Landi-Jons will likely take on journeyman Brian Gassaway in a welterweight affair that will as the main event of the upcoming TKO 32: Ultimatum, which will take place at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on February 28th.

The news comes from a report by TKO Xtreme.

Landi-Jons is a true veteran of the sport to say the least. He fought for the first time in his career all the way back in 1993, where he submitted Moura Moura with strikes. Since then he has gone on to fight and defeat some of the top fighters in the sport, earning wins over the likes of Matt Hughes, Pat Miletich, and Jorge Patino to name a few.

Even though his record these days may tell a different story, Landi-Jons was considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world at one point. He was also a former key member of Chute Boxe, but ended up leaving the team after reportedly not being recognized for his training of the Rua brothers.

Gassaway started off last year on a negative note as he was submitted by John Alessio with a rear naked choke at a WEC show in January. Gassaway suffered another setback in losing a decision to Dereck Keasley but bounced back and has won two straight fights in independent shows since then.
