How did these two get here?
Jeff "Hellbound" Hougland is a well-rounded fighter with a brown belt in BJJ and plenty of Muay Thai experience who is on an eight-fight winning streak. He is a former Rumble on the Ridge featherweight champion, and actually fought Gilbert Melendez on a WEC card way back in 2003. And his nickname is cool.
Donny "Eagle Eye" Walker is the reigning NAAFS featherweight champion, and has competed against the likes of Cub Swanson, Jeff Curran, and Kenny Foster. He is currently on a seven-fight winning streak, and is a blue belt under Relson Gracie. He's also a police officer.
