June 12, 2011

Soboba Casino

San Jacinto, California



UFC veteran Gabe Ruediger has a simple approach to fighting:


“I like to finish fights, whether by strikes or submission. I don’t expect to go to a decision.”


This approach has helped form Ruediger into an exciting 155-pounder who knows how to bring the pain to

his opponents, and the excitement to the local crowd. And at “Full Force” this Sunday, June 12th, the

Gladiator Challenge faithful will get to experience Ruediger’s skills once again. In the main event of the

night, he will tangle with Aaron Neveu for the GC Lightweight Championship.


“Regardless of who I’m fighting, they are going to come with the intention of beating me,” said Ruediger.

“But I’m coming to finish the fight, regardless of who it is.”


Ruediger has had to face many obstacles in his career, including being dropped from the UFC twice. But

he is still confident in his character. “My will to persevere is my biggest strength.”


The co-ma in event of the night will showcase a GC Featherweight Championship tilt between Greg Guzman

and Paul Webb. In addition, returning GC favorites Keith "KO Kid" Berry, Deutsch Pu'u, and Robbie Peralta

will put their skills on display once again. Gates for "Full Force" will open at 4:30 PM, with the first fight

hitting at 6 PM. Tickets for this exciting event are available through the Virtual Box Office at


To the GC fans, Ruediger had this to say: “Prepare for excitement. I’ve never had a boring fight. I try to finish

from beginning to end. Don’t blink.”
