Steele Cage Promotions, LLC and International Fighting Organization, LLC today announced the addition of UFC veterans Sean Salmon and Rich Clementi to the September 1st “Fireworks in the Cage II” event.
Just days before the show at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Chris Price had to pull out of his scheduled IFO light heavyweight title fight with Travis Wiuff due to injury. Salmon, who has won back-to-back fights since leaving the UFC in May, replaces Price in the title bout.
Clementi replaces another UFC veteran, Tony Fryklund, who is also out due to injury, in a welterweight feature bout. Having gone 1-3 in his past 4 fights (3 of them in the UFC), Clementi will be looking to rebound, but has a formidable task in front of him in the form of Kyle Gibbons.
“Fireworks in the Cage II” is scheduled to take place September 1st at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The event is also being filmed and will be televised on HDNet.
