Welterweight title fight headlines Gladiator Challenge: 'Reality Check' on Oct. 24

Apple Valley, Calif. -- Gladiator Challenge (GC), one of the top MMA promotions in California, is proud to present a world title match at this weekend’s "Reality Check," live from the Wendover Nugget Hotel & Casino in Wendover, NV. The card takes place live this Saturday, October 24th.

10 action-packed bouts are scheduled, including a Gladiator Challenge Welterweight title fight between the man who holds the belt, Jake "The Snake" Paul, and hungry challenger Brad "Dirty Pop" Johnson.

Also featured will be a heavyweight battle between Cobey Freeman and Lupe Lara, as well as great young fighters Willis Ferguson and the Espittia brothers. Gates open at 5:00 p.m., with fights beginning at 7:00 p.m. Fans can purchase tickets for "Reality Check" at, or call (888) 826-8858.

Jake "The Snake" Paul (14-13) has tangled with well-known veterans of the fight game with UFC, WEC, EliteXC experience, including Mike Dolce, Mike Pierce, Rick Story, Jaime Jara, Floyd Sword, and Blas Avena. Nothing Brad Johnson throws at him is going to faze the grizzled Paul, and he will be looking to finish his less experienced counterpart.

Brad "Dirty Pop" Johnson (10-5) is a great wrestler who utilizes his ground skills in order to submit his opponents. On the rise in MMA, he is looking to use the GC Welterweight belt as a springboard to bigger things in the sport. Either way, this fight has the potential to be an absolute barn-burner.

With all the exciting bouts scheduled for this card, Wendover fight fans will be in for a huge treat. "We are very glad to be back at the Nugget," exclaimed GC Owner/Promoter Tedd Williams. "The fans there are great, and we’re excited to bring the Gladiator Challenge brand of fights back to them!"
