We’ve seen it time and again; when styles clash at PREMIER, it makes for amazing matches. So what will happen when a grappling technician faces off against a high-octane wild card? We’ll find out on Sunday, March 6th in Gilroy, CA as “Ace” Buddy Royal (2-4) battles “Flying Lion” Marcus Lewis (5-4)!
“Ace” Buddy Royal returns to PREMIER XII with his classic style of wrestling. His “no thrills” style respects substance over flash in an effort to inflict the most pain with minimal effort. Both of his impressive wins have come as a result of the world famous Figure Four leg lock and his reversals can come as an unwelcome surprise to unsuspecting opponents. However, in Royal’s latest match, he was overpowered by newcomer Vito Rea (1-0). The brutal Italian trapped Buddy in an unique variation of a knee lock, forcing his debut opponent to tap out. Now the “Ace” returns with hopes of climbing up a spot on the PREMIER Top 10 List but he’ll have to tame a wild foe in order to achieve that goal.
A perennial fan favorite at PREMIER, “Flying Lion” Marcus Lewis always entertains with his high-speed offense. Hitting his ever-popular 450 Splash most recently on “El Pistolero” Julio Pedroza (3-4), Lewis’ last victory was just as intense as any other he’s claimed. Much to his dismay, he was unable to participate at PREMIER XI where he had earned a title shot against “The God of War” JR Kratos (9-2-1). As the Number One Contender’s title was awarded to “The Soul Fighter” Joe Graves (4-1-1) as a result of winning the Embrace the Grind Challenge, Marcus must now work his way back up the PREMIER rankings in hopes of gaining a future title shot. If he’s going to get back to the top, the “Flying Lion” will have to go through an opponent looking to tame the young Lewis.
