Anderson (1-0-0) makes his second professional appearance and first at a Idaho Central Arena event following his debut win in November against Ashequllah Mohammadi by punches during the opening round. The 5-foot-9 fighter out of Oregon went 1-1-0 during his amateur career before turning pro and is the second representative announced on the card out of American Top Team Portland, a gym led by former UFC fighter Fabiano Scherner. The American Top Team brand has produced multiple UFC fighters across the country like Junior dos Santos, Jorge Masvidal, Amanda Nunes, and Dustin Poirier.
Peel (0-0-0) makes his professional debut at his second Front Street Fights event following a 4-2-0 amateur record. The 5-foot-7 fighter out of Idaho made his amateur debut at Front Street Fights 9, taking down Paul Crawford by triangle choke en route to three-straight wins at the outset of his MMA career. Peel was raised locally but moved to train with former MMA fighter and Olympic wrestler Dan Henderson, returning to Boise to make his pro debut.
The fight leads up to the Main Event where Andrew “Hurricane” Cruz looks to defend the Featherweight Title against Terrance “T.Wrecks” McKinney.
