STB 22 Buenos Aires: Jose Barrios Vargas vs. Gustavo Rodriguez

Simply the Best Buenos Aires

STB 22 Buenos Aires is a mixed fight-bill held at Club GEI on September 22 (Sept. 23 AWST). The event is headlined by a pair of WKN International title bouts, featuring super light heavyweight Christian Bosch up against Andres Dussan, and middleweight Martin Velasco face off Eduardo Vergara. The rest of the card includes kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA contests.

The third MMA bout presented on the card has been announced on Thursday (via Instagram). The contest features welterweight Jose Barrios (7-0) who battles out against his Argentine-fellow Gustavo “Chino” Rodriguez (4-3).

Jose Barrios is coming off a decision win scored against Marcio Flores at Bosth Tour 11 in June. A year earlier he stopped Martin Torres in the first-round, as well as knocked out Nicolas Ruiperez in July 2016.

Gustavo Rodriguez is riding a stretched two-fight win streak. In his most recent outing in June he scored the first-round KO win against Jonathan Torres. In November 2016 he submitted Lautaro Jesus Ayala in the first round.

The Barrios vs. Rodriguez bout was initially targeted for STB 15 Moreno produced last October, but was rescheduled for this event.

In addition, the second women’s contest has been added to STB 22 fight card. The matchup is an all-Argentine kickboxing battle between Mariana Clausi and Johana Orue. The bout is scheduled for three rounds at flyweight.

Simply the Best 22 Buenos Aires is featured on the Estrellas de Acero programme (Steel Stars) on FOX Sports, CN23 and B1B. President of World Kickboxing Network Stephane Cabrera attends the event as a special guest. The current line up can be found below.
