Premier MMA Championship amateur Featherweight champion David Rankin will be making his professional debut as he is scheduled to face off with Cleveland Ohio’s Tobiaus Taylor on Saturday August 11th at Premier MMA Championship 9 at the Hits Sports & Entertainment Complex in Covington Kentucky.
David Rankin has enjoyed an enormous amount of success as an amateur fighter compiling a perfect 10-0 record since making his MMA debut back in 2013 and in February of 2018 became the first ever Premier MMA Championship amateur featherweight champion. The 25year-old fighter has been a dominant force throughout his amateur career winning the AAMMA title in 2015 and is currently the #1 ranked amateur featherweight in Kentucky according to tapology.
Tobiaus Taylor, a Professional fighter out of Cleveland Ohio will be making his first trip to the state of Kentucky to compete and is looking forward to welcoming Rankin to the professional ranks. Taylor, who had also dominated as an amateur fighter highlighted by winning the NAAFS title in 2014 has been fighting as a professional since 2015 and is coming off a very impressive victory in his most recent fight. While Taylor will enter this fight being the more experienced fighter in fighting professional level fights he feels Rankin’s past opponents were unable to overcome the height difference Rankin usually presents as a featherweight fighter of which Taylor said:
“Height doesn’t matter, they all fall like Domino’s”
Both Tobiaus Taylor and David Rankin will be entering the Premier MMA Championship cage on August 11th with only one goal in mind, to be the fighter who has his hand raised, Will David Rankin continue his undefeated streak by winning his first professional fight or will Tobiaus Taylor welcome him to the professional ranks by sending him home suffering his first defeat?
