Parker and Pratcher battle for redemption at Fight For It VIII

Nothing makes for a great MMA fight quite like two experienced pros, both looking to bounce back from a loss. This is especially true when Roger Pratcher and Ryan Parker set to be the men in the cage.

Pratcher is itching to get back to his winning ways, and this weekend at Fight For It VIII, he’ll have the opportunity. The long-time sparring partner of Fight For It fan favorite Bryan Battle and fellow member of the highly touted Hayastan MMA team (which also includes Fight For It VIII competitor Shameek Harvey), Pratcher enters the cage on a two fight skid, hoping to benefit from his team’s recent momentum and get his pro career back on track with a big win.

But his opponent is looking to redeem a recent loss as well. Ryan Parker came up short last May, against the blue chip MMA prospect Andre Petroski. Since then, the Xcombat fighter has been looking to prove himself again as a legitimate middleweight threat on the East Coast rankings.

Both guys are making their promotional debut with us this weekend, and we’re excited to see what happens when these two combustible elements combine in the center of the cage, this Saturday at Fight For It VIII.
