Peter Queally (8-2) will embark on a mission to face Giorgio Pietrini (5-3) on the massive Venator FC 3 card this weekend.
The SBG fighter has won his past three fights and will be looking to extend that winning streak to four for the first time in his pro career.
His opponent is a bit of an unknown quantity. Pietrini seems like a well rounded fighter having won fights via TKO, submission and decision. Two of his three loses have come against the same guy - Marvin Vetorri (9-2) - and the other was against the highly rated Christophe van Dijck (7-2). So he has really only been beaten by good opposition.
The big thing here for Queally is 1) get the win and 2) get a finish. In ten professional fights he has went the distance ten times. That means he has clocked up an incredible 150 minutes of cage time during his career so far.
No doubt he is knocking on the door of the UFC but he really needs a finish to give himself an extra boost to get in.
Venator FC 3 is headlined by Rousimar Palhares (18-6) vs. Emil Weber Meek (7-2-1,1 NC) and will also feature Luke Barnatt(10-3) vs. Jason Mayhem Miller (23-9, 1 NC) and a clash in veterans with Sokoudjou (16-14) vs Matt Hamill (11-6).
