On Friday, March 24, Paramount MMA returns to the Paramount Theatre in Denver for its seventh event.
In the night’s main event, Strikeforce and Bellator MMA veteran Brian Rogers competes in his adopted hometown against Canaan Grigsby. The match-up will be for the promotion’s light heavyweight title. Rogers enters the contest on the heels of a first-round destruction of Lewis Rumsey in January. Grigsby is also coming off a first-round finish, having stopped Bill Smallwood at Legacy 63 in December.
The co-main event also features gold on the line as Denver’s Jarred Mercado takes on Nick Rhoads. Mercado will be looking to bounce back from a fourth-round submission loss to Alexandre Pimentel at Victory FC 50 last year, while Rhoads hopes to build on his submission win over Kurt Southern last spring.
