Combate Global picks, live stream, how to watch, fight card: Martinez vs. Vergara prediction, TV channel, time
Combate World bantamweight champion David Martinez was supposed to face No. 1 contender Frans Mlambo for the title this weekend, but an injury to Mlambo forced a change in the main event. It will now be Arturo Vergara who takes on Martinez to headline a five-fight card scheduled for Sunday, May 29. Martinez is 6-1 in his career, while Vergara is 2-0. You can stream the action live on Paramount+.
Sunday’s televised portion of the card will also feature a featherweight battle between Chris Boasso (3-2) and Tino Gilaranz (4-2) and a 110-pound featherweight bout between Marina Sanchez (0-0) and Jade Jorand ( 0-2). It should be another intense night of action at La Jaula. The Combate Global fight card begins at 11 p.m. ET, and you can catch all the action live on Paramount+.

Combate Global’s top picks for the May 29 fight card
Before you tune in to Sunday’s Combate Global fight card, you need to see the picks from SportsLine MMA insider Andrew Gombas. With over 1,400 caps tracked by third-party monitoring service Bet MMA, it has shown a 6% return on investment for its subscribers. Over the past two years, his followers have made a profit of over $10,000.
For Sunday’s Combate Global fight card, Gombas picks Martinez to win the main event against Vergara. While Mlambo suffered his injury late in the training process, Vergara stepped in at the last minute and didn’t have much time to prepare for the best that Combate Global has to offer in the bantamweight division.
“David Martinez is 6-1 in his MMA career. His only loss was a split decision in the Combat cage. Arturo Vergara is only 2-0 in MMA, but he has experience in kickboxing. Vergara should have the edge on the feet,” Gombas told SportsLine. “It would be beneficial for Martinez to dabble in grappling and really make it an MMA fight, rather than a kickboxing match. If he does that, I think he wins.”
