Anthony Ferguson defeats Yves Edwards by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
This was a great back and forth stand-up battle. Ferguson got the better of the opening stanza, having Edwards rocked in the second half and covering up, though he couldn’t find the killer blow to put his rubber-legged opponent out. Edwards fired back strongly in the second though and was finding a home for his kicks, with even some landing to the head, and also had Ferguson’s nose bloodied. Despite that Ferguson was still pressing forward and landing shots of his own making it a close round. In the final five minutes the pace slowed a little, but both fighters were still game and throwing plenty of leather, with neither gaining a definitive edge. In the end the judges appeared to lean heavily towards Ferguson but it was a closer fight than that, and a very entertaining one.
Johnny Bedford defeats Louis Gaudinot by TKO at 1.58mins of Rd3
One way traffic from start to finish here from Bedford. He dominated on the ground for the first two rounds, wearing down his helpless and much smaller opponent with ground and pound. In the third he landed some vicious body shots and then dropped Gaudinot with a knee. More punishment was enroute on the floor as Bedford unleashed with vicious kicks and knees to the body and left the referee with no choice but to leap in to save the turtled up Gaudinot from further punishment. Impressive display from Bedford.
Marcus Brimage defeats Stephen Bass by decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
For two rounds of this contest it was all Brimage as he pressed forward aggressively with powerful punches to the body and head backed up with repeated inside leg kicks. Bass somehow drew up the energy to come out hard in the third round though and despite looking tired he put everything he had left into his punches as he looked for the finish. In the final seconds he was almost rewarded as the two traded blows and he landed clean, causing Brimage to loose his footing and fall to the mat, but the bell sounded before he had a chance to fully capitalize and Brimage would go on to get the decision victory.
John Albert defeats Dustin Pague by TKO at 1.09mins of Rd1
Quick win for Albert here. Both men came out swinging straight away and in a toe-to-toe exchange Albert landed a left hook followed by a straight right directly to Pague’s chin which floored him. Albert followed him and cleverly managed to grab Pague’s left arm and pin it against his own neck almost as if in a choke, preventing him from being able to defend the barrage of blows that followed, forcing a TKO stoppage with just 69 seconds on the clock.
Roland Delorme defeats Josh Ferguson by submission (rear-naked choke) at 0.22mins of Rd3
This was a good, competitive fight. Round one was a technical battle on the ground with Delorme getting the better of it with multiple submission attempts. Round two was largely fought on the feet and it was closely contested with Ferguson appearing to get the edge, wielding the heavier blows and seeming more at home in the stand-up battle. He looked tired going into the last round though and Delorme capitalized early, dropping him with a left hand and then pouncing, taking his back and locking in the fight-ending choke.
Steven Siler defeats Josh Clopton by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
Siler put on a muay thai clinch clinic in the opening two rounds, repeatedly getting ahold of Clopton and firing off constant knees that left his opponent bleeding heavily from his nose. Clopton just didn’t seem to know how to get out of it, but to his credit he took a whole lot of punishment and managed to rally to take the third round by taking the fight to the ground on several occasions. He wasn’t able to find a finish though and so Siler picked up the decision.
Bryan Caraway defeats Dustin Neace by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3.38mins of Rd2
Caraway got the better of Neace in both rounds. His striking wasn’t the most technical at times, preferring to load up with single shots, but he was landing with more frequency than Neace and had him briefly wobbled with a clipping left hook in the first. The real key though was his wrestling, executing smooth takedowns at the mid-way point of each round. In the first he took Neace’s back but couldn’t find a finish, but he did likewise in the second and seized on the rear-naked choke opportunity to force the tap.
