Your choice of knockout or submission is on the menu at Combate Global on Friday night. Edir Terry and Miguel Gonzalez are at odds in a main event that should produce a stoppage.
Terry (8-4) has scored finishes via punches, leg kicks and rear-naked choke over the course of his career. A third-round stoppage of Carlos Puente Jr. in Combate last year suggests that finishing instinct carries late. Standing across from him is Gonzalez (5-1). His potent combination of punching power and chokes has secured him four first-round finishes. Chris Boasso barely faired better when he fought Gonzalez last year, submitting to a guillotine choke at the 1:04 mark of Round 2.

Friday’s co-main event features one of Combate’s more intriguing prospects in undefeated Jose Ferreira (8-0,1 NC). Ferreira, 24, secured a slick first-round anaconda choke in his last fight. He fights Combate lifer Patrick Lehane (5-1). The Irishman notched a knockout victory in his last outing and hopes to stitch together another winning streak by defeating Ferreira.
