Total Combat 7

Call it a comeback, Affliction MMA’s VP Tom Atencio (1-0) will step back in the cage on June 27 for a mixed martial arts show at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss. 42 year old Atencio, will fight an unnamed opponent on the undercard of the PPV, which will be headlined by WWE Superstar Bobby Lashley vs. Bob Sapp.

Affliction Entertainments VP Tom Atencio:

“I love this sport and I am not a wannabe. I’ve fought before and I have respect for anyone who steps into the ring win, lose or draw. They’re doing something that most of the world will never do.”

What weight will he fight at?

“I think 160, maybe 155 … Not sure I can make 155 at 42 years old.”

Tom Atencio has had one previous fight, he defeated David Martinez by decision at Total Combat 7 back in 2005.

Also, heavyweights Pedro Rizzo and Gilbert Yvel will face each other on the PPV portion of the card.
