Back to the fights themselves now.
Combate 56, which features nine total mixed martial arts contests, is highlighted on Friday night by a non-title main event showcase in the Combate Americas Lightweight division
Adrian Guzman (6-1) will fight Alejandro Martinez (4-4) to close out the show this week.
Heading into the Friday night main event, Adrian Guzman is the taller contestant at 5-foot-9, one inch taller than Alejandro Martinez’s 5-foot-8 frame.
How they got here:
Guzman has posted a 4-1 record in his last five fights and enters this contest on a two-fight winning streak.
Last time out, he defeated Danny Ramirez (unanimous decision) in Combate 50 on Nov. 22 in Fresno.
In the other corner, Alejandro Martinez is going in the opposite direction, having gone 1-4 in his last five fights, entering Friday night’s main event on a two-fight losing streak.
Most recently, he dropped a split decision to Enrique Gonzalez in Combate 40 last June.
Ordinarily at this point in the article, we’d mention who has the advantage on the tale of the tape as per Tapology, but no such information exists on the page for this pairing.
Prediction: Adrian Guzman by decision.
