The debut event for Monte Cox’s newly formed Adrenaline MMA promotion, which will take place on June 14th at the Sears Centre in Chicago, seems to be taking shape.
Our friends at MMARated.com have learned about three bouts that will take place as well as two other potential participants on the card.
Welterweight veterans Tony Fryklund and Brian Gassaway will likely clash in one of the night’s featured bouts. The clash will feature two fighters going in opposite directions. Fryklund is currently riding a three-fight losing streak while Gassaway has won his last three bouts.
Terry Martin, who was recently released from the Ultimate Fighting Championship and was victorious in his professional boxing debut last weekend, will reportedly take on UFC and PRIDE veteran Daiju Takase, who has not fought since being knocked out by Hector Lombard in March 2006.
International Fight League lightweight will try to snap his current losing streak when he takes on Jeff Cox, who was also recently dropped by the UFC. Additionally participating fighters will include Miletich Fighting Systems product Rory Markham and EliteXC veteran Aaron Rosa.
Jeff Monson and Mike Russow will clash in an already-announced heavyweight bout that is expected to serve as the main event.

Jeff Monson vs. Mike Russow
Tony Fryklund vs. Brian Gassaway
Terry Martin vs. Daiju Takase
Bart Palaszewski vs. Jeff Cox
