WEC Veteran Headlines Upcoming Jackson’s MMA Series II Card - Coty “OX” Wheeler returns to the cage September 4th
After an exciting and action packed fight card for the first ever Jackson’s MMA Series Event, Coach Greg Jackson and Jackson’s Gym are presenting the Jackson’s MMA Series II on September 4th at the new Hard Rock Casino and Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The fight card will feature WEC veteran Coty “OX” Wheeler and Ray Robinson out of Gracie Arizona in Phoenix, Arizona.
Wheeler is a proven and exciting fighter with three flying armbar finishes among many more submission victories. He won Fight of the Night honors for his fight with Will Campuzano at WEC 46. This matchup with Robinson will be a tough test for “OX” as he makes his way his way back to the cage. This will be Wheeler’s first fight back in New Mexico since the February 2008 WEC card in Albuquerque. One advantage “OX” is looking forward to having is his Mescalero tribe showing up in full force. Wheeler is a native of the Mescalero tribe out of southern New Mexico. His entrance to the cage is filled with native dances and costumes. It is one of the more exciting entrances in all of sports.
Wheeler’s opponent, Ray Robinson, is an experienced fighter with 14 fights and six submission victories. He trains out of Gracie Arizona, a very prominent Jiu-Jitsu school with talented fighters. Robinson is no slouch and should be a tough test for Wheeler in his 1st fight since January on the popular WEC show. We should look for a fast paced battle that could end at any time with a spectacular submission or on the feet.
