Shogun Fights

March 30, 2024

The East Coast’s Premier MMA Organization

The brain-child of John Rallo, Shogun fights regularly packs several of the largest venues in the region including Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, The Theater at MGM National Harbor and Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Ft Lauderdale. A hotbed for celebrities and UFC stars, Shogun events will continue to be a Baltimore mainstay for a time to come.

With a successful (albeit short) MMA career and stint as a celebrity bodyguard under his belt, working with the likes of Tommy Lee and Sylvester Stallone, Rallo focused on opening a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy after receiving his blackbelt from Renzo Gracie himself. During this time he worked towards legalizing MMA in the state of Maryland, eventually passing legalization in one session – an unheard of feat with new legislature. With the arena wide-open, Rallo has spent years promoting shows and building a roster of packed talent, with several fighters going to the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Dana White’s Contender Series and PFL amongst others.

  • Mike Perry launches new hybrid rules fight promotion Dirty Boxing Championship
    by Shaun Al-Shatti on July 20, 2024 at 1:56 am

    YouTube, Overdogs Podcast Mike Perry is stepping into the promotional game. On the eve of his boxing match against Jake Paul, the UFC veteran and BKFC star held a press conference in Tampa to announce the creation of Dirty Boxing Championship, the combat sports organization Perry is founding alongside his team at First Round Management, former Karate Combat executive Adam Kovacs, and Josh McLean of Kanpai Media. According to Perry, Dirty Boxing Championship will feature hybrid rules bouts that mix the striking arts of boxing with five-ounce gloves and limited ground-and-pound. “This promotion has been in the works for over a year, and we started this because of my success in bare-knuckle,” Perry said. “I feel there that are many great fighters and athletes out there that would like to compete in something like this but don’t exactly want to compete in bare-knuckle and take the gloves off. There are a couple names that come to mind.” Dirty Boxing Championship bouts will be held in a smaller 18-foot ring and feature three three-minute rounds, with five rounds for championship fights. All hand strikes will be allowed, including elbows. Fighters who score a knockdown will be permitted to use follow-up ground-and-pound punches but must remain on both feet while doing so. Weigh classes are expected to mirror MMA’s traditional divisions. The launch of Dirty Boxing Championship’s first event is expected to take place around September or October. The promotion currently does not have a broadcast deal. “I think this rule set is going to be the most exciting thing for the casual fan base that’s been put together,” McLean said. Already the face of bare-knuckle boxing, Perry expressed a willingness to compete in his new organization as long as his matchups makes sense from a promotional lens. Watch the full launch of Perry’s newest endeavor below.

  • Kaynan Kruschewsky vows to make Kurt Holobaugh’s family cry at UFC Vegas 94
    by Guilherme Cruz on July 20, 2024 at 1:00 am

    Kaynan Kruschewsky  | Photo by Chris Unger/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images Kurt Holobaugh won 19 of 22 fights outside the octagon, but hasn’t been able to replicate that success in the UFC. His opponent at UFC Vegas 94, Kaynan Kruschewsky, won’t feel sorry for the veteran when they face off Saturday night. A former Jungle Fight lightweight champion who signed with the promotion after submitting Dylan Mantello on Contender Series, Kruschewsky came up short in his UFC debut this past November when he took on Elves Brener on four days’ notice. The experience changed him, and he vows to give Holobaugh his sixth loss in seven UFC bouts. “If he makes a mistake, I’ll squeeze his neck,” Kruschewsky told MMA Fighting. “It sucks to be talking about someone else’s losses, but we’re fighting for a dream here. Those who do more cry less. I’ll make his family cry because he will lose this fight, God willing. I’ve worked so hard for this. My family needs this win, I need this win. There’s nothing else for me. It’s my dream, it’s the win, and it doesn’t matter how.” Kruschewsky has ended 60 percent of his MMA wins by submission and plans to do the same at UFC Vegas 94, even if Holobaugh has only been submitted once in 29 pro fights. The Brazilian lightweight, however, doesn’t rule out finishing the fight on the feet. “Knockout, submission, or a decision, I’m going to war like always,” Kruschewsky said. “I’ll dance [however] they play that night. I know he’s a warrior and probably will try to knock me out, corner me against the cage and explode. He doesn’t have a good takedown defense but has a good guard, so it’s smart not to fight there, to be on half guard. But like two plus two equals four, I’ll catch him if I take him down. He will go down and I’ll squeeze his neck, make no mistake about it.” UFC Vegas 94 marks the debut of Kruschewsky representing Brazil’s up-and-coming Fighting Nerds team and the 155-pounder called his preparation “the perfect camp,” especially after a rough night in the office — with no camp whatsoever — at UFC São Paulo. “I can say this will be, in fact, my UFC debut, because I see that [Brener] fight as a learning experience,” Kruschewsky said. “I didn’t really need to take that fight because I was already under contract with the UFC, but I don’t regret it. I’m an employee of the UFC and when they call me, I’ll be ready. But it’s going to be a different Kaynan now, more intelligent and calm. We’ll brawl, but when I want to. I’ll drop him on his ass. “I prepared my entire life to be in the UFC but I wasn’t ready to go through that atmosphere on such short notice. Elves Brener was already in camp and that fight fell on my lap on four days’ notice, and I let emotions carry me. When Dana White signed me, he said I was ready for any situation, that he would count on me, and that stayed in my head. When my manager called me, I thought I could live up to those expectations. When Bruce Buffer started the show and said my name and touched my hand, I thought, ‘That’s it, I’ll kill that man.’ Said who? The adrenaline took control of me and I choked. “People think I was doing OK and being aggressive, but the emotions dominated me and I couldn’t deliver. I don’t regret it, but I do regret the outcome.”
