The co-main event of Friday’s Shamrock FC 290 will be a bantamweight bout as Erion Zekthi will look to bounce back from his first professional defeat when he meets Scott Ettling on the fight card coming from the River City Casino in St. Louis, Missouri.

Zekthi (1-1) made his professional debut last year at Shamrock FC 275 and scored a submission victory over Trevor Ward. He returned to the Shamrock FC cage three months later at Shamrock FC 279 against Demetrius Wilson and he was defeated by split decision.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Zekthi was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight on Friday night against Ettling in the co-main event of the fight card.
