Joseph Benavidez defeats Tim Elliott by submission (guillotine choke) at 4.08mins of Rd1
It may have lasted less than a round, but this was a great, action-packed fight. Elliott really brought the fight to Benavidez early and scored a number of solid takedowns and even had him trapped in a crucifix at one point. We’re not used to seeing Benavidez being manhandled like this, but he kept his composure and when Elliott went in for another takedown he managed to scramble on top. He was working hard to get to full mount and almost had it a couple of times, before finally getting it, up high with his legs constricting Elliott’s arms while he applied a deep guillotine choke. It was in tight and with Elliott unable to move his arms enough to tap, he ended up having to frantically tap with his feet on the mat instead to end the fight!
Takanori Gomi defeats Isaac Vallie-Flagg by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
This one proved to be a hard-hitting slug-fest. Despite Gomi’s renowned punching power Vallie-Flagg was happy to stand and trade heavy leather, throwing everything behind his punches as he started the fight the brighter of the two men. Gomi took a while to get going, but started to connect with meaningful blows towards the end of the first round, and then mid-way through the second he was starting to really make his mark, quite literally as Vallie-Flag began to sport significant damage beneath his right eye. It was essentially swollen shut by the start of the third, but Vallie-Flagg continued to trade all the same, but the bigger shots were coming from Gomi and left his face streaked with blood by the end of the fight.
Bethe Correia defeats Jessamyn Duke by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
Competitive fight here, but generally Correia was the busier, more aggressive fighter. Despite being at a size and reach disadvantage she was able to consistently land a lot of leg kicks and a fair amount of punches too, while also producing takedowns. Duke tried to use her reach to keep her at bay, but didn’t have the volume of strikes she needed, while the impact of a few good throws to get her opponent to the mat were reduced by her inability to keep Correia down.
Danny Castillo defeats Charlie Brenneman by KO at 0.21mins of Rd2
The first round in this fight was all about the battle for wrestling dominance, with Brenneman appearing to have the edge with takedowns, though Castillo was doing well in the scrambles. Things changed in a hurry in the second round when Castillo unleashed a right hand from hell that connected violently to Brenneman’s jaw and toppled him like a tree to the canvas for the spectacular clean KO finish!
Chris Beal defeats Patrick Williams by KO at 1.51mins of Rd2
The evening gets off to a good start with an entertaining scrap that culminated with a flying knee KO finish for Beal mid-way through the second round.
