Interview above with USKA matchmaker David Harr
USKA 99 Delaware Pro/Am is going down on Saturday evening, September 24th at the Nur Shine Center in New Castle, DE. This event is not for the faint of heart. There will be some dangerous men and women, big and small, smashing each other with kicks, punches and elbows and whatever else they can find.
The main event features Delaware native “Bazooka” Joe Stripling versus “The Destroyer” Rob Morrow for the USKA heavyweight championship. Stripling is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport. He may weigh in as a heavyweight, but he is quick, nimble, and unpredictable. “Bazooka Joe” has a cartwheel kick KO on his resume and will have a ton of fans supporting him. Morrow doesn’t care about that and will be trying to spoil the party.
The co-main event features “Da Pitbull” Davis Oracio vs Brad Mountain in a battle for the 205 lb Glory Rules Championship. Both of these gentlemen have brutal power, and the leg kicks will surely have many people cringing as they hear the sound of shin to flesh.
Joe Clark vs Jon Wunder will go at one another for the 130 lb full rules Thai Championship in another excellent match-up. There are also a host of other exciting fights on the undercard as well as a Heavyweight Grappling Bout (submission only) between Nicholas Caggia and Dennis Gunic.

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
