Cristian Perez looks to build on his case as one of Combate Global’s premier athletes against fight-game veteran Gilber Ordonez Huila. The lightweight fighters clash in Miami, Florida on Friday night.
Perez (10-1) has emerged as a standout fighter for Combate Global, making his professional debut with the promotion in 2019 and stopping 70 percent of his opponents over the last three years. Ordonez Huila (10-5) refuses to be a stepping stone for Perez’s continued evolution. An MMA fighter with nine years of experience, Ordonez Huila makes his Combate Global debut on a career-worst three-fight losing skid. Watch the match on Paramount+.
