Countdown to Iron Tiger 79
Iron Tiger 79 – Dec. 15
The Leader In Ohio MMA
IT Fight Series founder Scott Sheeley is a martial arts pioneer that has managed to make an impression on the sport of MMA long after his days of competing. A laid-back Midwestern man born and raised in Ohio, Sheeley has been training martial arts since the age of 19. He holds a 6th degree black belt in Shaolin Kung-Fu a blue belt in Shuai Chiao, and a blue belt in Brazilian jujitsu. Sheeley is a former pro kickboxer with a record of 39-10 and an actor with extensive roles in martial arts movies such as “Blizhniy Boy” and “Knockout.”
As a promotor, Sheeley has managed over 70 events in the Midwest region, and currently operates as the general manager of the Ohio-based promotion Iron Tiger Fight Series. He has provided a platform to fighters in his home region for several years, and has sent fighters like Matt “The Immortal” Brown and Dan “Dragon” Spohn to the highest level of competition in MMA following impressive outings in Scott Sheeley-run promotions.
Iron Tiger Fight Series Matchmaker Nichole Castillo is an integral part of the promotion, and the driving forced behind the great fight cards that Iron Tiger puts on for its fans. Working with MMA promotions in Ohio since 2005, Castillo was thrown into the fire of matchmaking very early on and has flourished ever since.
Nichole has worked for premier promotions like Bellator MMA and over 7 other organizations throughout the Midwest. She was the first matchmaker to put together a fully sanctioned WMMA-only fight card in the state of Ohio, and just the second to achieve the feat nationwide. Beginning with Iron Tiger in May of 2015, Castillo has brought with her a myriad of experience and connections making her a true asset for the promotion.
