Theodorou Heads South For Title Shot
Just three months removed from defeating Mike Kent for the Extreme Cage Combat Middleweight title, Elias Theodorou will look to add another piece of hardware to his mantle when he challenges Travis Clark for the North American Allies Fight Series 185 pound belt.
Theodorou, currently Canada’s 5th ranked Middleweight, is undefeated in his pro career which includes wins over Simon Marini, Ali Mokdad and a victory inside the Bellator Cage over Rich Lictawa. After winning the aforementioned ECC title over Kent rumors circulated that “The Spartan” would take Kent’s spot against Loiseau at AFC 20 but sadly the match up never came to fruition but luckily for Elias he has another chance to brighten his summer by bringing the NAAFS Middleweight strap to the great fight north.
Clark, a member of Evolve MMA, won the NAAFS title by defeating former Strikeforce and Bellator veteran Dominique Steele this past March. The Ohio native, nicknamed “The Terror”, holds a record of 7-1 as a professional and finished six of those between the bells including five by TKO/KO. With the match up being held in his own backyard, Clark will look to make Theodorou’s first trip state side a disappointing one.
NAAFS Rock ‘N’ Rumble 7 goes down August 24th from Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica in Cleveland, Ohio. The card will also feature John Hawk vs. Josh Stansbury for the Heavyweight title.
