Premier FC 7 Breakdown: Ryan Quinn vs. Ricardo Funch (NortheastMMA)

Ryan Quinn vs.  Matt Lee

The Main Event quality fight that has the attention of gym rats and MMA junkies is the Ryan Quinn v Ricardo Funch Welterweight match. This is the classic ground fighter v striker. Each fighter’s strength is the other’s weakness.

Ricardo Funch (7-2) has fought in the UFC and his only two losses are in the UFC. He is a homegrown talent in Western Mass and was a top regionally ranked Welterweight before being called up to the big show. He has, however, been generally inactive on the MMA scene over the past year and a half. “Ricardo’s kick boxing is second to none,” said Jason Franklin. He will have his hands full when he returns to the New England scene this Saturday. “The Winner of this fight will be the one who imposes his will,” said Jason. Yeah, you always want to play in your own sandbox…

Looking to keep the fight in his own sandbox will be Ryan Quinn. Quinn (7-2-1) is a product of American Top Team, splitting his time between ATT Connecticut and ATT Florida. He rose to the top of the MMA Welterweight pile by defeating then # 1 ranked Brett Oteri via submission back in august. Much like several of his Welterweight buddies here in the NorthEast, Ryan is one critical win away from a trip to the big show.
