Northern Nevada’s #1 cage fighting event returned to GFL as “Ultimate Reno Combat 49” was another blockbuster, showcasing the top regional stars of Nevada, California and beyond from the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada. Voted the #1 Amateur MMA Event in the Nation, URC continued that legacy with another strong event that featured 10 fights and 9 finishes.
In the main event, for the URC Lightweight Championship, Danny Ramirez (8-1) defeated Delorean “D-Lo” Heaivilin (8-1) via TKO in the first round. Heaivilin and Ramirez quickly closed the distance and began trading shots. Heaivilin grabbed a nice clinch and scored with knees. Ramirez got a takedown as Heaivilin tried for a submission from the bottom. Ramirez was strong on top and scored with some strong ground and pound as he unloaded with some strong right hands getting the TKO stoppage in the first. Ramirez now holds the URC Lightweight and Welterweight belts.
In the co-main event, Aarason Perry (5-2) defeated Andrew Lipp via unanimous decision after a grueling battle from both men. This was the only fight on the card that did not end in a stoppage as both Perry and Lipp were battle tested and would not be finished. Perry was a bit more active in the standup and on the ground, he was dominant as he spent most of the time on the ground on top of Lipp. In the first, Perry tried to sneak in a modified guillotine as Lipp bull rushed him, but Lipp took the fight to the mat where he broke free. Perry went for an anaconda choke in the second, but Lipp defended and hit a switch and got a takedown of his own. In the third, Perry tried for a standing kimura but Lipp defended again and they went back to fighting in the clinch with Perry scoring with knees. It was a tough fight for both men who showed true grit.
In other action, Ray Radtke (3-1) defeated Anthony Lopez via rear naked choke in the second round. Radtke got a nice takedown and tried to create distance in the closed guard of Lopez. Radtke stayed heavy on Lopez and scored with some short shots, as Lopez tried to catch an armbar and triangle choke. Lopez was close, but Radtke pressed forward as the bell ended. In round two, Radtke got another takedown and moved from a guillotine attempt to the back of Lopez. Once there, Radtke wasted no time in sinking in the fight ending RNC.
Jamario Mulder, Kurt Walsh, and Dillon Moore all won their fights via submission, while Nick Gifford won via TKO.
