Steele Returns to the Octagon for DWTNCS August 20!!!

SBG Idaho Athlete and Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated, competitor competitor Ricky Steele (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) makes his long awaited Octagon return August 20 as a part of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series Live on UFC Fight Pass and ESPN+.

Steele has been a staple of the SBG Idaho team for years and the still-undefeated fighter has been working hard sharpening his skillset with his training partners and teammates here at SBG Idaho. Steele as he looks to bounce back from an injury-shortened Ultimate Fighter season and punch his ticket to the UFC against New Jersey fighter Phil Caracappa (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Caracappa is the current Ring of Combat Bantamweight Champion with one of his defenses coming against UFC Veteran Louis Gaudinot. Caracappa promises to be an outstanding test for Boise native Steele, who has been knocking at the UFC’s door for the last few years. Be sure to tune in live, Tuesday, August 20 at 6pm MST and be sure to show your love and support to Ricky as he heads into the home stretch!!!

Timmons and Aslami to be featured at Fusion Fight League August 16th!

Montana-based Fusion Fight League has been an outstanding event for showcasing SBG Idaho’s MMA athletes, and on August 16 that tradition will continue with Fight Under the Lights 5 at Centenne Stadium in Great Falls, Montana! The evening will feature women’s featherweight action  with SBG Idaho’s Riley Timmons (3-1 MMA) taking on Missoula, Montana fighter Lauren Wolfe (1-1 MMA) in what is sure to be an exciting matchup. Timmons is on a 2 fight win streak with both of those wins coming by way of stoppage, the most recent being a TKO of Ramona Esparza at King of the Cage: Full Speed last September. It will be nearly a year since Timmons has stepped into the cage since that fight and we are expecting to see her best version yet!

Also on the card in men’s flyweight action is Kyle “Kid Flash” Aslami (2-2 MMA, 0-1 FFL) as he takes on Montana athlete Chaz Marsicano (1-1 MMA, 1-1 FFL). The always exciting Aslami looks to get back to his winning ways, and has been sharpening his tools and filling in the gaps in his game to make sure he comes out the victor on August 16.
