ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Arizona cagefighter Ray Robinson’s nickname is not “Sugar,” which doesn’t mean an upset of New Mexico’s Coty “Ox” Wheeler on Sept. 4 wouldn’t be sweet.
Wheeler, though, has his own motivation: the thrill of another victory in front of his many Albuquerque fans, and the lure of a new contract with World Extreme Cagefighting.
The Wheeler-Robinson match was formally announced Tuesday as the main event of Jackson’s MMA Series II, scheduled for next month at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Albuquerque.
On the undercard, Jackson-Winkeljohn fighter Henry Martinez of Santa Fe is matched against Matt Madrid of Silver City. Jackson fighters Matt Leyva and Julie Kedzie also are on the card.
