Exclusive: Combate Global to crown a new lightweight champ in one-night tournament

The COVID-19 pandemic forced Combate Global, formerly Combate Americas, to the mixed martial arts sidelines for over a year. Now, with two events in the bag since their reemergence, the promotion will revisit a format that’s a yearly staple of their “mucho mas accion” content. The one-night tournament.

MixedMartialArts.com has learned that on April 23, from the Univision Studios in Miami, Florida, Combate Global will determine a new North American lightweight champion with a four-man, one-night tourney. The event will air live in the US on Univision and TUDN at 12:30 am ET/9:30 pm PT.
