Although ROP 22 is still in its earliest stages of development with no finalized matches thus far, Trench Warz President Cuki Alvarez says that he has big plans in store for the event.

Should all go as planned, there is a good possibility that fans could see TW flyweight champion Jordan “The Machine” Mangloña, TW featherweight champion Roman “Sonic Boom” Alvarez and former champion Shane “Pikaboo” Alvarez appearing on the fight card.

Alvarez has already begun initiating the process of accepting fight applicants.

Fighters looking to secure a spot on the tentative ROP 22 card are being asked to submit their name, age, team affiliation and weight class to Alvarez via his social media at or by phone at (670)783-4MMA.

Stay tuned for further details on ROP 22 and more in the coming weeks as they develop.
