Spotlight Fight:  Pearl Gonzalez (5-1) vs. Katie Casimir (2-3) – Pearl won by Submission at the 4:20 mark of Round 2.

Gonzalez debuted in 2012 under the Ring of Combat banner, where she suffered a majority decision loss to Munah Holland. She moved to the XFC, where she scored a first-round submission win in her promotional debut and then captured the vacant XFC women’s flyweight crown with a third-round submission finish of current UFC fighter Cortney Casey. The fall of the American wing of the XFC led to a quiet 2014 for Gonzalez, who never was afforded the chance to defend her crown. Instead, she moved on to the XFO and picked up a decision win over Tyrea Nicole Duncan. After a submission win in the Xplode MMA cage, Gonzalez returned to the XFO and added her first TKO victory when she stopped strawweight prospect Valeria Mejia. The 29-year-old has been training in martial arts for much of her life and was already part of a pankration team by the age of 12. She has trained at Combat-Do and with the San Diego Combat Academy.

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 2.31.15 PMMain Event: James Terry vs. Buddy Wallace

According to MMA Mania, the main event at CFC 2 was touted as one of the top-five fights toScreen Shot 2016-05-02 at 2.30.01 PM tune-in to on GFL over the weekend, nor did they disappoint. The fighters were both hard nosed welterweight gladiators.  In the end, Terry tallied a tad more offense and control, hence earning the unanimous decision victory.

James Terry def. Buddy Wallace by way of unanimous decision.

Roy Boughton def. CJ Leveque in round 1 (:41) by way of arm lock.

Over a quarter-ton of body mass collided when Roy Boughton faced CJ Leveque in the super heavyweight division. Leveque outweighed Boughton by forty pounds, but that didn’t freeze Boughton from launching his attack without hesitation. Moments after the referee’s orders to begin round one, Boughton, with the finesse of an atomweight, dragged Leveque to the canvas, laced one of Leveque’s arms in his legs, and manipulated the joints to hyperextend, forcing Leveque to tapout.

Myron Smith def. Amir Lacy by way of split decision.

lacy and smith fotnWhen Myron Smith stood across from Amir Lacy, it looked like a fire hydrant and a hose were going to sync up in the middle of the apron. Smith, a pro since 2013 with a snarl hardened long before, attempted to close the space and pressure Lacy, but Lacy, the youngster with scar-free skin in his professional debut, maintained the demeanor of a veteran while keeping Smith at the end of his punches and kicks. If the fight went to the ground, the grappling of Smith and Lacy nullified any attempts to contort the other into a pretzel. After fifteen minutes of tit-for-tat trade-offs, the judges rendered a split decision in favor of Smith.

Dwight Grant def. Jordan Williams in round 1 (2:47) by way of KO.

Dwight Grant collected two bonuses with half a round’s worth of work after defeating Jordandwight grant Williams. Packing dynamite in his hands, Grant opened the first round with a left hook that pulled the rug out from Williams’ feet. Williams grew from the ground like a seedling, though, still dazed, he quickly became target practice. One more flush punch from Grant, and Williams checked out

James Terry vs. Buddy Wallace – Conquer Fighting Championships 2

In what should be a scintillating main event at Conquer Fighting Championships, James Terry and Buddy Wallace will go toe-to-toe in a battle of attrition.

After a quick submission loss by the hands of Nick Barnes at Bellator 147, Terry looks to redeem himself after his lack luster performance. The Welterweight contender is looking to punish Wallace in ways that may not be deemed appropriate to discuss here.

Of course, Wallace will be no easy task to walk over, as he will walk into the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA sporting an impressive 11-5 record.

Although Wallace is coming off a loss in his last bout in WCFC against Max Griffin — who’s a gifted fighter in his own right — Wallace is on a road to redemption.

Both fighters are starving for a win. Who’s going to come out on top?

Rebecca “The Hurricane” Baldwin v Kathyrn Bassignana could be the fight of the night at Ascendancy Fighting Championship 9. Both fighters are coming off finishes in their last fights – Bassignana by choke and Baldwin by KO in the 1st 30 seconds of the 1st round.  Though we only have a small sampling, Baldwin has the look of a warrior.

Baldwin said that in preparing I mentally I think of my opponent as my worst enemy. This is not worrying Bassignana, she plans to use her experience in the cage to offset Baldwin’s rage.

The AFC Professional Flyweight Title is on the line as Nate Williams is set to do battle with Tony Crowder.

It’s been over 5 years in the making and now IT’S TIME for these two warriors to square off!

Both fighters have been competing in MMA for about 10 years now and have almost 100 bouts combined. They fought in 2011 and Williams finished Crowder in the 2nd by submission/Armlock.  Neither fighter is the same today as they were 5 years ago.  Both have evolved a lot since their first meeting in the cage. I think this is a fight that has the old school original Des Moines MMA fans very excited! This fight has a lot of hype behind it.
