Jake Matthews defeats Akbarh Arreola by TKO (doctor stoppage) at 5.00mins of Rd2
Matthews had to dig deep in this fight after being badly hurt in the opening round. Arreola had him in trouble early by first taking his legs out from under him with a kick, then clocking him with a hook as he got back upright. Things were about to get a whole lot worse for him though as Arreola landed a clean head kick followed up by hard punches that sent him to the canvas. Despite clearly being rocked Matthews somehow had enough presence of mind to defend himself on the mat as Arreola took his back and threatened to sink in a rear-naked choke. In the closing stages of the round Matthews was able to shunt his opponent off his back and get on top, and to his credit he immediately got to work with some hard ground and pound elbows to prove he was still very much in the fight. Then in the second round Matthews was able to quickly get Arreola down again and went right back to work with impressive ground and pound from inside the guard. Elbows thudded down repeatedly, bringing cuts and swelling to Arreola’s face. He continued in the same fashion for the remainder of the round, landing some big hooks too near the end. Arreola was left with major swelling to his right eye and after taking a look at it the cage-side doctor declared that he was unfit to continue to the final round, so Matthews gets the TKO win.
Kyle Noke defeats Peter Sobotta by TKO at 2.01mins of Rd1
Noke made short work of Sobotta here, landing a well placed front kick to the body that sent his opponent crumpling to the mat in obvious pain. Noke showed no mercy and moved in to finish with ground and pound.
Gian Villante defeats Anthony Perosh by KO at 2.56mins of Rd1
It was one-way traffic in this fight as Villante picked Perosh off with solid punches that were clearly taking a toll before finally sending him face first to the mat with a piston like straight right to the jaw.
Danny Martinez defeats Richie Vaculik by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
while Martinez was the more aggressive fighter on the feet in this fight, albeit with less than technical striking, it was really his wrestling that was the big difference here as he repeatedly took Vaculik down in each round. He seemed happy just to control the action though and it never looked likely that he would find a finish on the mat.
Daniel Kelly defeats Steve Montgomery by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
Kelly won the first round as he repeatedly threw Montgomery to the mat, but in the second Montgomery was mostly able to keep it standing and landed some solid offensive strikes to make the fight competitive heading into the final five minutes. The two men traded evenly on the feet for a good part of the third, but Kelly then took control after getting Montgomery to the mat and threatening with submissions which helped secure the decision win in his favor.
Richard Walsh defeats Steven Kennedy by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
Walsh wins the first decision of the evening unanimously with his superior striking being the big difference between the two. He had his opponent in trouble after an aggressive start to the opening round, but Kennedy rallied in the second half of that spell with a takedown leading to submission attempts. Kennedy repeatedly looked to take the fight to the mat in the second, but Walsh was now stuffing his attempts and was bringing the bout back upright each time. Eventually Kennedy did put him on his back, but Walsh remained aggressive and got the better of the action despite the disadvantageous position. In the third Kennedy was running of steam while Walsh kept up the pressure to ensure the win on the scorecards.
James Moontasri defeats Anton Zafir by TKO at 4.36mins of Rd1
The first couple of prelims have got off to a flying start! This time it’s Moontasri who bags a first round victory after getting upright following an early takedown from Zafir. The early grappling seemed to drain Zafir and Moontasri made him pay in the closing stages of the round with an eye-catching combo, landing a spinning kick to the body followed by a spinning backfist that dropped his opponent, then sealed the deal with ground and pound for the finish.
Ben Nguyen defeats Ryan Benoit by Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 2.35mins of R1
Nguyen hurt Benoit early on the feet with a left hand, then got him to the mat and took his back, eventually sinking in the fight-ending choke mid-way through the round.
