ICON Sport will put on their second event of this year in the form of “Hard Times”, which will take place this Saturday night at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii. The event will not be streamed online but videos of the fights are expected to be put on ProElite.com following the show’s conclusion.
Kala Kolohe Hose, who defeated Phil Baroni to claim the vacant ICON Sport middleweight title back in March, will look to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Robert McDaniel at EliteXC’s “Return of the King” event in June against newcomer Rolando Dominique.
A streaking Bao Quach, who has won his last eight fights, will take on former ICON Sport bantamweight champion Mark Oshiro for the promotion’s newly created 140 lb. title in the night’s co-main event. Oshiro, who is also riding a seven-fight winning streak of his own, recently submitted Chris Willems at EliteXC’s Hawaiian event.
Fresh off a victorious debut at welterweight, Phil Baroni will look for his first win inside the confines of ICON Sport when he faces fellow veteran Ron Verdadero in a featured bout on the main card. Baroni scored a highlight reel knockout of Scott Jansen at Cage Rage 27 last month. Verdadero has dropped his last two bouts.
