Cobb, the #5 Lightweight contender and college wrestler from team Pain and Suffering, is coming off a 4 win streak, most recently a first round submission in Gladiator Challenge: TOP GUNZ in May. Suggs, best known for his brawling, never-give-up fighting style, has gone undefeated for the past two years, his latest victory a first round submission on May 21st in Gladiator Challenge: TOP GUNZ.
