CFFC 10 - Black Eye

 

Click here to watch this event on GoFightLive!

Cage Fury Fighting Championships returned to Atlantic City, New Jersey as it presented CFFC 10 - Black

Eye to a packed house at the Resorts Hotel and Casino. The card was highlighted by a title switch and

included 7 of 9 bouts ending in either KO or submission. CFFC gave the fans another solid show to and

added to its ever-increasing momentum as the dominant MMA organization in the Tri-State area.

 

In the main event, Massachusetts fighter Chip "The Surgeon" Pollard (5-2) defeated the formerly unbeaten

Joey "Boom Boom" Rivera (5-1) by TKO by doctor stoppage due to cuts after Round 3. Pollard was

surgical in his standup landing punch after punch to Rivera's face causing a cut under his right eye. Rivera

looked sluggish from the get go, which might have been due to fighting 3 times in 8 weeks. Whatever it was,

Pollard took advantage of the situation and beat Rivera to the punch at almost every instance. In the third

round Rivera found some success as he landed a takedown and then worked for a choke. Pollard was able

to escape the hold and get back to his feet where the two men continued to battle on their feet with Pollard

continuing to get the better of the exchanges, even though Rivera stayed in the pocked and was throwing

just as many strikes. After a second successful takedown by Rivera it looked like the tide might be turning

in the fight, but after a referee standup due to lack of action, Rivera's eye had suddenly swollen up. The third

round came to an end seconds later and the doctor stopped the fight, making Pollard the new CFFC

Welterweight Champion in a great main event.

 

In the co-main event, Mike Medrano (9-8) defeated Al Buck (5-10) by arm triangle submission in Round 1.

The fight was intense from the opening bell as the crowd shouted and cheered for their guy. After some

initial standup, Medrano landed a takedown and immediately moved to half guard and then full guard landing

punches throughout the rest of round one. In round two it was more of the same as Medrano got another

takedown only this time when he moved to the mount he secured an arm triangle submission for the tapout

victory. It was an impressive victory for Medrano who controlled the whole fight and made it a grappling

match which is his forte.

 

Be sure to catch all of the fireworks on this stacked card and watch some of the top fighters in the country

do what they do best and battle in the cage as GFL.tv presents CFFC 10 - Black Eye exclusively through

the GFL Combat Sports Network.

The Warriors Cup XII

 

Click here to watch this event on GoFightLive!

 

The Warriors Cup XII delivered a great night of standup combat proving that Muay Thai is very alive and

thriving in the United States. The 15-bout had a mixture of both professional and amateur fights and gave the

fans action every second of every fight. It was also a historical night as it was the debut of professional full

rules (including elbows) Muay Thai in New Jersey. The fighters did not disappoint.

 

In the main event, Liam "The Hitman" Harrison defeated Justin Greskiewicz by TKO in Round 2 to win the

147 lb WBC International Muay Thai Title. Harrison lived up to his moniker as "The Hitman" delivering

punishment throughout the bout including powerful leg kicks that were easily picked up on the house

microphones and heavy-fisted punches. Greskiewicz was a game opponent, but could not take any more

punishment as the referee called a halt to the fight after Harrison delivered a short left hook that dropped

Greskiewicz at the end of round two. Greskiewicz was still dazed and not fully recovered going into the

rest period and the referee stopped the fight. With the victory, the Englishman Harrison wins the vacant

championship and if this fight is any indication, he will hold on to the title for a long time.

 

In the co-main event, Rami Ibrahim defeated Mark DeLuca in a WBC Lightweight Elimination bout after a

unanimous decision after five great rounds. Both Ibrahim and DeLuca showed why they were in a #1

Contender's Match as they both dug into each other with vicious strikes that would have stopped lesser

fighters. But it was Ibrahim who landed the cleaner shots during the fight and winning every round on two

judges' scorecards that proved to be the difference.

 

In another great bout Brett Hlavacek, fighting out of New York City, defeated Marcus Fisher of Pittsburgh,

PA by majority decision after five rounds in a super middleweight (165 lb) bout. Hlavacek being the semi-

local had the crowd with him for every punch and kick he landed and gave the Tri-state area fans something

to be proud of.

 

If you love action-packed striking, The Warriors Cup XII is your type of event. Watch all of the punches,

kicks, knees and elbows as these warriors mix it up with one another and leave everything in the ring. Order

this event exclusively at GFL.tv.

Bully's Fight Night II

 

Click here to watch this event on GoFightLive!

 

Too Tuff Promotions presented BULLY'S FIGHT NIGHT II on Friday, July 22, 2011, at the Lethbridge

Exhibition Grand Stands in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. The event featured 3 fights for vacant titles.

 

In the all-Canadian main event, Nick Penner improved his record to 10-1 with a TKO win over John Ganshorn

in the fourth round of their BFN Heavyweight Championship tilt. After winning the first 3 rounds, Penner

scrambled to mount in the fourth round after Ganshorn recklessly gave up position going for a leglock

attempt. Penner commenced to rain down punches until the referee peeled him off of Ganshorn.

 

In the co-main event, a match-up of heavyweights with less than stellar records, The Ultimate Fighter 10

alum James "The Hammer" McSweeney took out Lee "Gladiator" Mein in the first round. Mein is a top

trainer in Canada and the father of the recently-signed Strikeforce fighter Jordan Mein. With this victory, his

first since being released from the UFC, the Brit McSweeney broke a 4-fight losing streak.

 

Jacen Flynn won the vacant BFN Light Heavyweight Championship with a 44-second rear-naked choke

submission victory over fellow American and former UFC fighter Edwin "Babyface" Dewees. Flynn started

his MMA career in 1999, and in just his second pro fight submitted Denis Kang. Flynn would remain

undefeated through his first 5 fights, including a split decision win over Dean Lister. Flynn lost for the first

time in 2002 in a rematch with Lister. Following a submission loss to current UFC fighter Ed Herman in

2004, Flynn did not fight again for 3 years. Flynn returned in 2007 to twice submit Hank "The Vice" Weiss,

but then didn't fight again until this fight over 4 years later. Not a bad comeback at all, though, beating a

fighter the caliber of the veteran Dewees. In the first of the 3 title fights, Winnipeg Academy of MMA's Alex

Popov submitted journeyman Talon Hofman in the first round. Hofman was a questionable choice for this

title opportunity in the first place, considering he was coming off back-to-back losses. Hofman has now lost

6 out of his last 7 fights.

Ultimate Reno Combat 26 - Relentless

 

Click here to watch this event on GoFightLive!

 

Northern Nevada's premier cage fighting event, Ultimate Reno Combat, returned to packed arena at the

Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada as the organization presented Relentless to a rabid group of MMA

fans. The 10-fight attraction gave the fans 9 stoppages. The main event and co-main event had more action

in them than other events have for their whole card. If you like knockouts and submissions than order this

card through the GFL Combat Sports Network at GFL.tv.

 

In the main event, Kathryn Davis (3-1-1) of Reno defeated Maria "The Real Deal" Andaverde (4-3) of

Redding, California via TKO doctor stoppage in Round 3. The fight was a back and forth battle with both

women gaining the upper hand at times. Davis went for an armbar in Round 1 and was the more active

fighter in a round that was mostly fought on the mat. Round 2 gave the fans a standup fight with Davis and

Andaverde exchanging punches to a roaring crowd. Finally in Round 3, Davis kept a grueling pace from the

beginning of the bell and started to get the better of the standup opening a cut at Andaverde's hairline. Blood

immediately started to pour and the doctor had seen enough and called a halt to the bout giving the fight to

Davis as the hometown crowd cheered with appreciation.

 

In the co-main event, Joe Rizk (7-1) defeated Roy Benitez (4-3) via TKO by head kick in 3 seconds.

Definitely a highlight reel for Rizk, the fight was over before the announcer took his seat. The fighters came

right at each other and Rizk threw a kick while Benitez tried to touch gloves. The kick sailed right over

Benitez' outstretched hand and landed flush on his head sending him to the mat. The kick was not a flash

knockout, more like a flash knockdown, as Benitez got back to his feet quickly but the referee had already

called a halt to the fight. To his credit, Rizk was ready to fight and launched the leg kick on his long frame

before it was clear Benitez was holding his hand up to touch gloves. It was a clean kick and probably a

record for fastest finish as the actual time was 2.2 seconds but the timekeeper rounded it up to 3 seconds

for the official stats.
