Former Oklahoma State amateur wrestling standouts and current Team Takedown members Johny Hendricks and Shane Roller are scheduled to make their MMA debuts on Sept. 28 at the Bricktown Event Center in Oklahoma City.
Roller, who trains out of Guy Mezger’s Lions Den affiliate in Dallas, is scheduled to face Jake Pruitt in a 155 lbs. bout.
Meanwhile, Hendricks, who trains with Team Takedown teammates Jake Rosholt and Eric Bradley in Las Vegas at Xtreme Couture, will be fighting Victor Ratcliff in a match scheduled for 170 lbs.
In addition to the pro debuts of Roller and Hendricks, the 11-fight Masters of the Cage XVI card is also expected to feature Bradley and Rosholt along with several other former amateur wrestling standouts.
Bradley and Rosholt made their debuts last month on a Masters of the Cage Card with Bradley defeating Troy Allison in the first round and Rosholt winning the MOTC light heavyweight title with a first round defeat of Dusty “Dream Killer” Miller.
