Cross is coming off a the biggest KO of his career when he finished Jonas Flok at Lights Out 6. Currently on a 3-fight win streak, “The Boss” looks to capture his first professional title to kick off the new year.
Bantamweight standout, Mando Gutierrez, has also been making a name for himself in the Midwest, terrorizing 145ers since transitioning to MMA in 2018. “El Toro” looks to make it 10-straight wins when he faces the debuting, Adam Kehr.
Kehr had an impressive 6-1 amateur career before deciding to turn pro. He’s coming off a third-round submission win at Lights Out 5 against a tough Abasi Perry. A win over Mando next month would put Kehr back on a win streak.
Lights Out 7 is already shaping up to be a contender for Regional Fight Card of the Year with the addition of Cross and Gutierrez. The event will take place on February 8 inside the DeltaPlex Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Confirmed bouts for Lights Out 7:
- Kenny Cross vs. Robert Hale – Lightweight Championship
