Rampage Jackson, Shannon Briggs Triad Combat Captains
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Shannon Briggs will be captains for the upcoming Triad Combat event this Saturday.
Former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and boxing champion Shannon Briggs will head Triad Combat.
The two were named captains for the upcoming event. The card takes place Saturday live on pay-per-view from Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
Jackson will be the captain for Team MMA with Briggs, a two-time boxing heavyweight champion, leads the boxing team.
Jackson had an illustrious career with the UFC, defeating Chuck Liddell, Wanderlei Silva and Dan Henderson among many others while becoming one of their most popular superstars.
He also won the Bellator Season 10 Light Heavyweight Tournament cementing his legend as one of the most exciting fighters in MMA history.
Among Briggs’ outstanding victories throughout the course of his career was his world championship defeat of Siarhei Liakhovich in the 2006 ‘Fight of the Year’ and his win over Boxing Legend and Hall of Famer George Foreman in 1997.
His legacy as one of the division’s hardest punchers was continuously showcased as he was celebrated internationally for his 53 show-stopping knockouts amongst his 60 career victories.
Triad Combat is a revolutionary, new combat team sport which incorporates boxing and MMA rules in an aggressive, fast-paced manner with the fighters competing in a specially designed triangular ring over two-minute rounds featuring professional boxers competing against professional mixed martial arts fighters.
The specific motto of leveling the playing field between the two sports utilizing crossover gloves and with holding allowed is meant to offer boxing and MMA fighters an even battleground where neither opponent has a greater advantage.
