PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Feb. 8, 2011) – Mike “The Beast” Campbell typically lets his fighting do the talking, but he couldn’t help himself Tuesday after hearing what his opponent, Mike Medrano, had to say regarding their highly-anticipated rematch Friday, Feb. 25, 2011, at the Twin River Event Center.

“I heard he has a chip on his shoulder,” said Campbell, who knocked out Medrano in September of 2009. “He’s going to have chips in his teeth after this fight.”

Campbell’s bold prediction has set the stage for “Rhode Rage,” the first event of the year for Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports’ Mixed Martial Arts division. The Coventry, R.I., lightweight, who now fights out of Providence, will put his 8-3 record on the line against Medrano (8-7, 2 KOs), a native of Toms River, N.J., who has lost his last two fights following a three-fight win streak.

“I usually don’t talk much before a fight,” Campbell said, “but I heard him running his mouth on a radio station in California. I don’t like him. He’s not a good guy.”

The two fought on a World Championship Fighting (WCF) show in Wilmington, Mass., on Sept. 26, 2009, inside a traditional, four-sided ring with four ropes on each side. Medrano scored two takedowns in the opening round, but Campbell (Team Sityodtong) broke free from both and eventually won the fight at the 3:21 mark when he sent Medrano to the canvas with a flying knee to the face and pummeled his fallen opponent with a series of punches until the referee stopped the fight. Feb. 25 will be their first fight inside the cage.

“The last time we fought, he couldn’t even make weight. I had to fight at 170 (pounds),” Campbell said. “Now he’s fighting at 155. He’s coming into my world now, and the results are going to be the same. I’ve been working hard. I wanted to fight in December (on CES’ “Snow Brawl” card at Twin River), but I unfortunately suffered an injury that set me back. I’m ready to go now.”

“Rhode Rage” will also feature an exciting, interstate showdown between Nashua, N.H./Team Weatherby middleweight Woody “The Dynasty” Weatherby (8-4, 2 KOs) and Todd “The Hulk” Chattelle (6-6, 6 KOs) of Pawtucket, R.I./Team United in what figures to be the toughest fight of Chattelle’s career. Weatherby’s resume includes a knockout win over UFC veteran John “Doomsday” Howard in 2008.

“I know this will be a tough fight, but I’m ready,” Chattelle said. “I’ve been training two to three times a day – whatever it takes. This is a big fight for me. I’m not worried about what the records say. He’ll have to be ready to face me.”

Also on the undercard on Feb. 25 are Pawtucket, R.I./TriForce MMA welterweight Keith Jeffrey (5-2-1) battling Tom Moreau (6-2, 2 KOs) of Derry, N.H./Team Valor; Jimmy Davidson (1-0) of Sandwich, Mass./Team Sityodtong facing Woonsocket, R.I./B+F Boxing lightweightJustin Switzer (0-1), who lost his professional debut to rising prospect Tyson Chartier at “Snow Brawl” in December; Rigo Dominicci (6-10, 1 KO) of Pawtucket, R.I./Triforce MMA facing Kevin Horowitz (2-2) of Queens, N.Y., in a welterweight bout; and middleweight Eric Cusson(1-0) of Franklin, Mass./Hybrid Fighting Arts facing winless Hector Sanchez (0-1) of Woonsocket, R.I./Elite MMA. Framingham, Mass./Team Bolanes middleweight Doug Bolanes (1-0, 1 KO), Boston/Team Sityodtong lightweight Andres Jeudi and Chartier (1-0) will also fight in separate three-round bouts.

“Rhode Rage” will be CES MMA’s fourth show since its inception in September of 2010. The newly-launched division has already grabbed major headlines in its brief existence; Johnston, R.I., native Pete Jeffery’s win over previously-unbeaten Saul Almeida on Sept. 17 was named the Herald’s Biggest Upset of 2010 while “Snow Brawl” earned Best Local Card honors.

Tickets for “Rhode Rage” are $30.00, $50.00 and $100.00 and can be purchased by calling CES at 401.724.2253/2254, online atwww.cesboxing.com or www.twinriver.com, at the Players Club booth at Twin River, or through any TicketMaster location. Doors open 6 p.m. with the first bout scheduled for 7.
