No Limits CEO George Rose admits Paul Gallen is still teasing out the details of how his epic fight night with Justin Hodges and Ben Hannant will play out, but floated the idea of a tag team feud at a heated press conference.
Gallen will battle the Queensland Stars at the Nissan Arena in Brisbane on September 15, while Aussie star Harry Garside takes on Miles Zalewski in the co-main event.

A self-proclaimed WWE fan, Rose enjoyed various matches in professional wrestling and even floated a concept to the ring that left floating gal Gobsma behind.
“We’re working out what the process will be for the fight,” Rose said.
“I’ve watched a lot of WWE over the years, I love tag teams, I love the Royal Rumble.
“I like the idea that if Gal stops the first guy, the music will play and the next guy will come running.
“If we can have a tag team option happen in the corner, one person will feel some heat and tag the other person.”
Gal was stunned.
“Oh, come on,” said Galen.
“Really? Did I get an opinion on this?”

There was also much speculation that he would be the first to take over from Hodges or Hannant Gallen.
When the host, Lt. Dan Hennessy, announced that he would be Hannant first, Rose was quick to pour cold water on anything real.
“We really haven’t decided that yet,” Rose said.
“We are still in the process. We will decide in the final week. We want it to be a fun night.
However, Hodges was eager to take part in the first fight because it was the fight he wanted.
“Well, this is the fight I want, so I’m going to go first,” Hodges said.
“Gal and I can go first and then Benny might be training for nothing because I’m going to stop him.”
Galen shares a similar view with Hodges, even going so far as to say that going second is “a bit of a cop out.”
“I agree with you Hodgo, I think you should go first,” Galen said.
“You’re the one who was adamant about calling me, so I have no doubt that you should go first.
“If you don’t go first, I think it’s a bit of a cop-out on your behalf, to be honest.
“I think you should ask her to go first.
