Strike Off FC debuted on GFL.TV from NOVA College in Annandale, Virginia with “Strike Off 4.” The action packed card raised the bar on the regional MMA and had multiple title bouts that anchored a mega card featuring tons of fighters from the Mid-Atlantic area as Strike Off FC presented another top tier, world class card.
In the main event, for the Strike Off Featherweight Title, Billy Quarantillo (6-1) defeated Khama Worthy (7-3) via KO in the second round. This was a fast paced fight from start to finish as both fighters pushed the pace. In the first, it was mostly standup for the first two minutes as Quarantillo and Worthy traded punches and kicks with Worthy getting the better of the exchanges. Quarantillo got the fight to the ground with a nice takedown as Worthy worked from a butterfly guard while Quarantillo tried to pass to side control. Quarantillo got the back of Worthy and locked on a body triangle and tried to maneuver in a rear naked choke. But Worthy stayed composed and fought off the advances of Quarantillo. Worthy put Quarantillo on his back and unloaded with several punches as Quarantillo responded with a rolling kneebar attempt and then went for another leg lock, this time a heel hook, as the bell sounded ending the round. In the second round, they picked right back up and started trading punches with Quarantillo connecting with a huge overhand right that caught Worthy flush on the jaw and knocked him out. It was over just like that.
In the co-main event, for the Strike Off Welterweight Championship, Bellator vet Derrick Kennington (8-6) defeated Elder Ramos (8-7) via armbar in the first round. Ramos landed a glancing overhand right hand that caught the top of the head of Kennington. Ramos went for an inside leg kick that Kennington used to his advantage as he scored a takedown off the kick. On the ground, Kennington worked for position and from the bottom, first locked on a triangle choke, then transitioned to an armbar and got the tapout from the gritty Ramos.
The promotion’s third inaugural belt was also on the line in the Flyweight division, as Varon Webb (6-2) defeated Samir Farid (4-1) via unanimous decision. After a quick feeling out process, Webb was able to score a takedown as Farid worked from the bottom from his guard. After a quick transition and scramble, Webb locked on a bulldog choke, but Farid worked his way back to his feet and scored a takedown of his own. Farid then got the back of Webb and tried to apply a rear naked choke as Webb got to his feet, holding the weight of Farid on his back. Webb went for a front spike on the ground to shake Farid off of his back, but Farid held onto the choke on the mat and continued to squeeze. Webb fought out of the submission and turned the tables by getting Farid on his back where Webb scored with punches as the first round ended. Over the next two rounds, Webb found his rhythm as he stayed out of the submission attempts of Farid and worked Farid over in the striking game. Farid showed off a great standup game too, but Webb landed the harder blows in the exchanges and continued to push the pace, even as the fight got into the final round.
