One of the Gulf Coast’s premier cage fighting organizations made its debut on GFL.TV as Island Fights presented “Island Fights 31” from the Hadji Shriner Temple in Pensacola, Florida. Island Fights always puts on jumbo cards and this event was no different.
In the main event, Dillon Cleckler (8-0) defeated Richard White (16-17) via TKO in the second round in a heavyweight bout. In the beginning, both fighters were throwing punches with bad intentions from the very beginning and Cleckler was also scoring on the ground as he got a takedown and put White against the ropes where Cleckler scored with some solid ground and pound. White retaliated with scoring some punches on the ground in his own right as both fighters were very even at this point. After White got back to his feet he and Cleckler continued throwing heavy hands and doing damage to one another. In the end, cardio played a huge part as both men were exhausted and winged punches from all angles looking for that one haymaker that would finish the fight. In the second, Cleckler landed a huge right hand and White dove in for an ankle pick that Cleckler stuffed. Cleckler followed White down to the mat and finished the fight on the ground with some impressive ground and pound. White remained on the ground for some time, but got to his feet to the applause of the crowd.
In the co-main event, for the Island Fights Lightweight Title, Socrates Sok Pierre (5-2) defeated Brok Weaver (5-1) via submission in the first round and avenged a loss from earlier in the year. Both fighters traded strikes in the beginning with Pierre scoring with knees and kicks while Weaver landed with right hands. Pierre got a takedown and ended up in side control where he scored with solid punches from the top as Weaver looked for a kneebar from the bottom. Pierre went for a guillotine and Weaver got back to his guard. In another scramble, Pierre locked on a D’arce choke in the corner and it was tight, forcing Weaver to tapout. It was a solid win for Pierre who sits atop the lightweight division.
