Hot off of the news that former two-time GLORY Featherweight Champion Gabriel Varga has signed with Bellator Kickboxing, the promotion has confirmed that his first fight will be happening in short order at Bellator Kickboxing 6. Bellator Kickboxing 6, set for Friday, April 14th in Budapest, Hungary, already features a Welterweight World Championship bout between champion Zoltan Laszak and former champion Karim Ghajji, but now Gabriel Varga will be making his Bellator debut on the card in a featherweight bout against Gabor Gorbics.
Gabor Gorbics is a Hungarian native who has an extensive combat sports history, including an impressive 23-5 record in professional boxing, four professional MMA fights (1-3) and a kickboxing record of 30-10 with 18 KOs. He also has an extensive amateur record across boxing and kickboxing to boot, making him a solid veteran and one of Hungary's better known names internationally. It will be an interesting challenge for the well-rounded and technical-minded Gabriel Varga who took some big shots from heavy-puncher Robin van Roosmalen. Chances are he won't be looking to repeat that any time soon and will be looking to keep Gabor at bay with his kicks and speed.
Of course, the fight that fans want to see is Gabriel Varga vs. Kevin Ross and chances are that we'll see that. Kevin's coach, Kieran, Tweeted us over the weekend that we'd see that fight happen.
@LiverKickdotcom as Kevin's coach... I'm telling you absolutely you will see Kevin vs Varga— CombatSportsAcademy (@CSAgym) March 5, 2017
