ProElite, the parent company of ICON Sport, has announced that it will be streaming Saturday’s ICON Sport: To Hell and Back event for free on it’s official website.
A total of ten fights are slated to be shown including a main event between Phil Baroni and Kala Kolohe Hose, who will slug it out for the vacant ICON Sport middleweight title.
ICON Sport officials vacated the title from the waist of current EliteXC champion Robbie Lawler after the Miletich Fighting Systems product was forced to pull out of two consecutive title defenses against Hose due to injury. Lawler has since announced his intention of competing for the belt again in the near future.
Baroni is coming off of a six-month suspension stemming from a positive steroids test under the watch of the California State Athletic Commission. Baroni has not fought since being submitted by Frank Shamrock at a EliteXC and Strikeforce promoted show last June. He signed a multi-year deal with ProElite last month.
In between his canceled fights with Lawler, Hose knocked out Full Force Productions veteran Frederic Belleton at a ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series event in January.
Other fighters competing on the card include former professional boxer turned mixed martial artist Jeremy Williams, who will attempt to stay undefeated against submission expert Auggie Padekan. Tyson Nam will try to win his second consecutive fight when he takes on Russell Doane.
Ross Ebanez will try to bounce back from a devastating knockout loss to Eddie Alvarez in January when he clashes with Brennan Kamaka. An ICON Sport featherweight title bout between Sadhu Bott and Bronson Pieper is also scheduled to take place.
