TGS Quick and Dirty Breakdown: Fabian Saldivar vs Eduardo Bustillos

In two days, “The Pride of Santa Rosa” will be defending his featherweight title for the first time against undefeated Eduardo Bustillos from Satillo, Mexico. Saldivar’s title defense will serve as the main event of STFC 33: Domination at the Mcallen Convention Center. Both fighters are coming into the fight riding win streaks and are both facing new challenges. For the challenger, Bustillos, is not only going after his first pro title put is also in the main event for the first time in his career. This uncharted territory for the fighter with Clay Guida like hair could put some added pressure on the young contender as he enters his biggest fight to date. As for Fabian Saldivar, this will be his first title defense since capturing the belt from Javier Obregon last September and sometimes keeping the title is harder than actually winning it. Saldivar faced some great competition on his road to the title but Bustillos might be Saldivar’s toughest challenge yet.
