Steele Cage Promotions, LLC on Sunday announced the updated fight card for Friday, Dec. 28′s “Fireworks in the Cage IV” event at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
International Fighting Organization light heavyweight champion Travis Wiuff was originally slated to face fellow Pride veteran Cyrille Diabate. Diabate, however, had to withdraw due to suffering an broken ankle during training, so Jesse Veium has stepped up to challenge Wiuff for his belt.
Another major change was the addition of the first-ever IFO women’s bout featuring world renowned boxing champion Elena Reid making her mixed martial arts debut against another boxing star, Tammie Schneider.
