The Team Combat League (TCL) is gearing up for an electrifying finish to its first season at Thunder Studios, located in Long Beach, California. The event, scheduled for Tuesday, August 15th at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST, is dubbed “The Semi’s” and will be an exclusive invitation-only gathering. The teams that triumph will pave their path to the maiden TCL championship fight, “MegaBrawl 1: History In The Making”, set for Sunday, August 20th, at 4 pm PST, 7 PM EST. You can catch all the action streaming live HERE.
In the semi-final opener, New York’s NYC Attitude, under the tutelage of coaches Ryan Oleary and Benny Roman, will clash gloves with DC Destroyers, headed by coach Barry Hunter. The teams have previously locked horns twice, each taking home a victory. Eyes will be on Most Valuable Fighter contender Quincey Williams, who will be vying to overturn his only defeat of the season against NYC’s Cristian Cangelosi. We will also witness the comeback of NYC’s lightweight dynamo Sherbek Rhakmatuloyev, who steps into the ring after a hard-hitting knockout loss to Marcel Davidson of Atlanta. He is set to fight Cobia Breedy, and Breedy is thirsty for redemption following two previous defeats to Rhakmatulloyev. Meanwhile, NYC’s rising star Pryce Taylor will face off against seasoned warrior Norm Neely in the heavyweight category.
The late-night session of the doubleheader will see the 6-1 Atlanta Attack square up against the evenly matched 4-4 Las Vegas Hustle. In their only encounter this season, Atlanta managed a contentious win. The ring will reverberate with family tension as Sam Arnold IIII of Las Vegas Hustle is set to compete twice against his father’s Atlanta team. The spotlight will also shine on the face-off between the league’s premier heavyweights, Michael Hunter of Las Vegas and Devon Young of Atlanta. A hotly anticipated rematch is on the cards between Keith Hunter and Javon Young, known for their previous street fight showdown.
Atlanta Attack’s co-head coach Sam Arnold Jr. stated confidently, “We have consistently performed throughout the season and are certain we will triumph over the formidable Las Vegas team.” His co-coach Mostaffa Meekins chimed in, “Our tight-knit team is ready and raring to claim the first TCL Championship for Atlanta.”
On the other side, Las Vegas’ Dewey Cooper expressed equal confidence. “We’re a rejuvenated team from when we first met Atlanta this season. I believe you’ll see a turnaround on August 15th in Los Angeles. We’re fiercely confident about competing in MegaBrawl 1: History in the Making and carrying a championship trophy back to Las Vegas.”
Even fighters from teams who fall in the semi-finals will have their moment in the spotlight, competing in the All-Star Match as part of MegaBrawl 1: History in the Making. The event will kick off @ 4 pm PST / 7 pm EST with the All-Star Match, followed by the Championship Match that will decide the first-ever TCL Championship city. Book your tickets HERE.
