Julio Gallegos is no stranger to an incredible fight. The M-1, XFC and Valor vet has made a name for himself all along the East Coast as a fighter who will take on and defeat any challenger. Gallegos fired onto the Pro scene, winning his first four fights with an impressive array of submissions and knockouts. He proved versatility and the heart to finish from the beginning, and every fight since has only worked to improve his devastating style that has seen the majority of his fights end before the first round.
Gallegos is known for his high level ground game, finishing five of his eight wins via submission. He has shown great ground defense, a very slick defense, and can threaten the tap from nearly any position. When not culling the tap from his foes, Gallegos also employs a fantastic set of hands and kicks that both set up finishes and make them. All three of his other wins have come from strikes, two of those came in under a minute. A fast pace, cardio and the ability to end a fight anywhere makes Julio Gallegos a great fighter to watch, and a worthy part of any headline spot tailor made for explosive excitement and skill.
His opponent, Bellator and UFC veteran Rodney “Sho’ Nuff the Master” Wallace, thrives on exactly these kinds of fights. A man constantly on a mission to test himself, Rodney Wallace has become one of the most exciting and unpredictable fighters to fire out of the ever blossoming Southeast fight scene. He has become well known for his fast paced wars, unique submissions and the sort of heavy hands that can end a fight in moments. With incredible matches against the likes of Paulo Filho, Emmanuel Newton, Brian Stann, Ovince St. Prieux, Phil Davis, David Heath and Luiz Cane (to name a few), there is no question about Wallace and his ability to take on any fighter, and win.
Wallace won his first nine Pro fights, showing his ability to finish a fight regardless of where it goes. He won gritty decisions, wild knock outs and precise submissions over the span of his first two years in the cage, putting him in the UFC as a promising prospect. With over 25 fights since his UFC debut, Rodney Wallace has become a staple in the MMA world, and especially here in the Low Country. His intense ability to grind fighters out, tap them, take them out with strikes or beat them on the cards has always made Wallace an exciting fighter to watch, however it is his willingness to get in there and give it his all that has truly made him one of the most successful fighters in the region.
