por Community Manager • 2022. May 26

Karate Combat: Season 4: Atamov vs. Levine will be LIVE at Universal Studios, Florida on Saturday, June 25th.

Two-world title fights will headline the stacked card being assembled for this landmark event, which will also host the Karate Combat debut of former Bellator and GLORY Kickboxing champion Gabriel Varga.

Rhode Island’s Ross ‘Turbo’ Levine will challenge reigning middleweight champion Shahin Atamov for the Karate Combat World Middleweight Championship in the headline slot, having earned his shot with a stunning spin-kick TKO victory over Igor de Castaneda earlier this month.

Ireland’s Eoghan Chelmiah, the Karate Combat World Bantamweight Champion, will rematch bitter rival Illies ‘The Madman’ Mardhi in the chief support slot, the two picking up where they left off after their Season 3 bout was cut short due to Mardhi breaking his right hand during the course of a four-round war.

With one Bellator Kickboxing world championship and two GLORY Kickboxing world titles to his credit, Canada’s Gabriel Varga is one of the world’s most decorated professional karatekas. He will debut on this card in a lightweight bout, with an opponent to be announced.

Also confirmed for the card is the deadly Omaira ‘La Guerrera’ Molina. The Venezuelan’s victories in Season 3 included a jaw-dropping knockout and two awards (Best Female Fighter; KO Punch of the Season) in the fan-voted official End-of-Season awards. Now 3-0 in Karate Combat, she faces Brazilian battler Ana Ferreira Da Silva and will be calling for a world title shot if she wins.

“This is a huge event for Karate Combat. The card is absolutely stacked and the headline bouts are two of the biggest fights you’ll see this year anywhere in combat sports. And we’ll be at one of Florida’s most iconic locations, Universal Studios in Orlando. I can’t wait for June 25th,

said Karate Combat President Adam Kovacs.
