LGIO East Tourney Gets a Shot of Adrenaline
Top MMA News has been able to confirm that both Jesse Gross and Alex Gasson have signed up for the East portion of the Let’s Get It On tournament which is scheduled for May 22nd in Gatineau, Quebec. Both fighters are based out of Adrenaline Training Centre in London, Ontario.
Jesse Gross (2-0-0) had an impressive professional debut at CFC 3 where he dispatched Agostino Denatale in the third round. After amassing an impressive 8-3 amateur record, Gross recently secured his 2nd win in as many professional fights when he forced TJ Yakuber’s corner to throw in the towel in the second round of their fight for the Xtreme Cagefighting Championship in Mt. Clemons, Michigan. The Lightweight prospect is the first Top MMA News has been able to confirm as taking part in the LGIO East Lightweight tournament.
Alex Gasson, who last competed in 2005 is looking to make his return as he enters the Welterweight portion of the tournament. Gasson (5-8-0) comes into the tournament with some solid experience under his belt. He has faced the likes of Nick Ring, Sam Morgan, Jeff Joslin, Jonathan Goulet and Brock Larson. Taking a five year hiatus from the sport is almost unheard of. The infamous ‘ring rust’ always poses a concern, however someone who carries the competition experience Gasson holds should transition well. The only other competitor for the LGIO East tournament Top MMA News has been able to confirm at this point is Markhaile ‘Showtime’ Wedderburn.
