Sorry everyone for the lack of updates over the past week….. My dog got tangled up in my laptop cord pulling it off my desk, breaking the hard drive. Alas, I have bought a new one and am back in business. Sorry again!

Efrain Escudero

———————————————————————

Former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ season 8 winner, Efrain Escudero returns to action against Jeremy Larsen in the main event of Rage in the Cage 148. The event is scheduled to take place on January 29th at the Wild Horse Pas Casino in Chandler, Arizona.

Escudero won his first fight since his release from the UFC back in November of last year, by submitting Alfredo Martinez in the first round with a rear naked choke. He was released from the UFC following his loss to Charles Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 22. Escudero weighed in overweight two out his last four fights in the UFC, which many believe was the tipping point for his departure.

Jeremy Larsen has won three straight fights inside the cage, including a victory over Bellator veteran, Victor Meza. The only loss in Larsen’s professional career was a unanimous decision defeat against former UFC fighter Edgar Garcia in December of 2007.
