Welcome to another Fight Fridays post on TPC’s Blog. For several weeks we’ve been uploading raw footage of fights from the 2010 U.S. Army Championship Combatives Tournament. As our series Close Combat gets closer to its debut date, we’re now uploading fight previews from our finalized Close Combat episodes, so now they include announcer commentary and Close Combat graphics. This will give you a peak into how awesome this series will look when it premieres in January 2011.
In this fight, Francisco “Frankie” Mercado (blue belt), from Fort Bragg, N.C. fights Erik Cabal-Garibay (red belt) for the gold medal in the flyweight division.
