Premier Fighting Championship debuted on GFL.tv from The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts, with another hard-hitting event as “Premier Fighting Championship 17″ lived up to all of the hype and then some. PFC is the #1 MMA organization in Massachusetts featuring the rising stars and blue chip prospects from the region. 14 bouts took place pitting some of the Northeast’s finest against one another in front of a highly charged crowd.

In the main event, Dirlei Broenstrup (10-3) defeated Shedrick Goodridge (6-8) via unanimous decision. The first round was fairly even as both men worked from the clinch and tried to outmuscle one another. Goodridge seemed like he wanted distance to strike but Broenstrup was intent on closing the distance. At the end of the round, Broenstrup got a takedown and even got the back of Goodridge going for a choke. The second round was more of the same as Broenstrup spent a lot of time in top control on the ground and got the back of Goodridge as the round ended. In the final round, Broenstrup did more of the same as he smothered Goodridge on the ground and landed some shots while on the back of Goodridge. Broenstrup beat a tough veteran in Goodridge and looks to continue to climb the ladder in PFC.

In the co-main event, Jessica Miele defeated Cassie Crisano via armbar in the second round. The first round was mostly fought in the clinch with each fighter looking to take the other one down. Miele showed off a solid wrestling and ground game the whole fight as she negated the shots of Crisano for the most part. Miele was strong in the clinch as she landed knees against the cage. Crisano got a takedown midway through the second round and scored with some ground and pound from the top, but Miele remained calm on the bottom and worked her guard so that she snatched an arm when Crisano went to throw a punch. Miele secured the armbar and rolled to her belly where she hyperextend the arm of Crisano and forced the tapout a second before the round ended.

TJ Sumler (5-4) won a decision over Ralph Johnson (8-13). Sumler controlled the fight with his takedowns, wrestling and control on the mat. Johnson wanted to strike but Sumler forced Johnson to fight on the ground with solid takedowns. Once Sumler got a takedown, that’s where the fight stayed for the whole round as Johnson was stuck on the bottom.

DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley, still in incredible shape at age 40, scored a one-sided unanimous decision over Daniel Attah on Saturday evening. Corley weighed in at an unbelievable 133 pounds, after spending close to 20 years fighting world class opposition at 140.

Corley dropped Attah five times, once round 4 and twice each in rounds 5 and 8. Attah was game enough to last until the final bell, however, to scores of 100-86, 99-86, and 100-85. With the win, Chop moves to 42-22-1 (25 KOs). Attah drops to 28-19-1 (11 KOs). The FightJournal.com exclusive video interview with Corley will follow this week.

In a special Washington, DC grudge match, Alexander “The Great” Johnson took on Henry “Sugar Poo” Buchanan. In what was billed as an even matchup, it didn’t take long for the winner to be decided.

About a minute into the opening stanza, the southpaw Johnson caught Buchanan with a straight left near the ropes and it was lights out. Buchanan tried unsuccessfully a few times to get up but couldn’t recover. Once he got to his feet, he was in no shape to continue. The referee waved the fight off at 2:10 of round one. Johnson improves to 16-2, (7 KOs), while Buchanan falls to 21-4 (14 KOs).

In the opener, Demond “D’BestAtIt” Nicholson stopped Dennis “The Shark” Sharpe in the fourth round of a scheduled six round bout. I’m used to seeing guys drop as soon as Nicholson hits them. However, the game New Jersey native Sharpe fought as if he came for more than a paycheck on Saturday night.

Nicholson brought out the big left hooks to go along with the huge right hand that fans are used to seeing. The accumulation of punches paid off as Nicholson was able to end Sharpe’s night early. Nicholson improves to 10-0 (10 KOs). Sharpe falls to 17-13-4 (4 KOs).

Bouts with Hector Camacho, Jr and Jeff Lacy were both cancelled. Camacho, Jr was scratched due to injury. Former IBF champion Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy was scheduled to face Rayco Saunders, but the bout was cancelled.

Asylum Fight League is back with its latest installment “Asylum Fight League 46″ from the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 13-bout amateur card featured 12 stoppages and 2 title fights, showcasing some of the top prospects on the East Coast!

In the main event, for the vacant Asylum Super Heavyweight Championship, Matthew Hill (4-0) defeated Patrick Egbert (3-1) via unanimous decision. These two men battled back and forth, but the control by Hill, both in the standup and on the ground is what made the judges give him the nod. Hill showed off a strong wrestling game getting multiple takedowns as well as working from side control to score with punches on the mat. Hill was also able to put together some nice combos throughout the fight. Egbert showed off his all-around game as he too put Hill in a few difficult spots. Egbert never gave up and up to this fight he was an undefeated fighter. Both prospects made a good showing in the fight and continue to grow. One thing that both men showed was decent cardio. The future is very bright for Hill and Egbert if they continue to get better and better in each fight.

In the co-main event, for the Asylum Heavyweight Title, Champion Trevor McGovern (7-1) defeated Matthew Spellen via rear naked choke in round two to retain his title. McGovern was just too strong on the mat as he moved from mount to side control to the back of Spellen through the whole fight. In the first, McGovern looked like he was setting up a twister before going for a RNC. McGovern ended the round with strikes from the mount. Spellen had a good sprawl as he defended the takedown attempts early and often, but once the fight went to the mat it was one-sided with Spellen just defending. In round two, McGovern got another quick takedown against the cage, and got the back of Spellen. McGovern flattened Spellen out on the mat and then took his back once again and got the RNC. All 7 of McGovern’s wins have comes via RNC. McGovern might want to consider turning pro at this point.

In a 147 lb bout, Robert Wallin (4-2) defeated Joseph Valentino (1-2) via triangle choke in the third round. Wallin showed off a strong grappling game as he was able to score multiple takedowns off of shots and also changing levels against the cage and finishing with a takedown. Once on the mat, Wallin went for a farside kimura but Valentino defended well. Wallin regrouped and attacked the back of Valentino looking for a RNC but it too was defended. Wallin got a kimura lock just as the bell ended the second round. In the third and final round, Wallin got another immediate takedown and ended up on top.

Ring of Combat returned to GFL with “ROC 49″. This event was another stellar card, something Ring of Combat has become synonymous with, as 3 titles were on the line! The event took place at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey and was filled to capacity. ROC continues to be the linchpin of East Coast MMA and this 13-bout card reiterates its dominance as the top dog in the Tri-State area.

In the main event, with the ROC Featherweight Title at stake, undefeated Champion Andre Harrison (7-0) defeated Jeff Lentz (9-5-1) via split decision. In the beginning, after a clinch, Harrison would muscle Lentz down to the mat. Lentz was strong on the ground and very technical and would find a way to his feet to get the fight back to striking where both men scored with some solid punches and kicks. Later in the fight, Lentz was able to defend from the clinch position better as he scored with knees from the position before succumbing to another takedown by Harrison who went to work from side control. The middle of the fight was more striking, but Harrison did manage to get a takedown or two off of the scramble and Lentz being out of position. A cut opened above Lentz’s eye during one of the exchanges as it was unclear if it came from a punch or a clash of heads. In the final round, both fighters gave everything they had, with Harrison having his most dominant round as he was able to put Lentz on the mat and keep him on the ground for the majority of the round. Even after a takedown by Lentz, Harrison was able to reverse the position and get to side control. Lentz was game until the end, even going for a kneebar late in the round. As the final bell came both men were throwing punches against the cage in a wild fight.

In the co-main event, for the ROC Bantamweight Championship, Champion Julio Arce (6-0) defeated Jake Grigson (5-4) via rear naked choke of the first round to retain his title and stay perfect as a pro. Arce got a double leg takedown against the cage and worked for a guillotine before letting it go and punching Grigson from on top. Arce got the back of Grigson and landed a series of punches before he was able to sink in the fight ending choke and getting the tapout. It was a dominant win for Arce who proves to be a hot commodity in the Northeast in the 135 lb division.

In the third title fight of the night, for the ROC Flyweight Title, Matthew Rizzo (7-2) captured the title from former Champion Jimmy Grant (5-2) when Rizzo sunk in a rear naked choke in the first round. The compact Grant wrestled in Ohio but it was Rizzo who was able to get the takedowns in the fight and get the back of Grant in the early going. Grant rose to his feet with Rizzo still on his back. Rizzo locked on a body triangle and would not give it up as he pummeled Grant with punches from the position. Rizzo locked on the rear naked choke as the fighters fell to the mat and actually choked Grant out as Rizzo became the new champion after defeating a tough, gritty fighter in Grant in impressive fashion.

Pat Defranco (4-3-1) and Mervin Rodriguez (5-8-1) fought to a split draw after 3 tough rounds. Most observers had the fight for Defranco who landed the harder and cleaner shots and was the aggressor for most of the fight. Rodriguez was able to bust up Defranco’s face a bit with his punches and Rodriguez looked no worse for wear after the fight. However the judges scored it, the fight was fight of the night as both men showed solid cardio, great heart and top notch skill inside the cage as there was action from bell to bell.

You won’t find a more thrilling card then this one. Be sure to catch all of the action as Ring of Combat presents “ROC 49″ exclusively on pay-per-view VOD at GFL.tv.

Weapons 9 Promotions is back and delivered another dose of full contact pro/am Muay Thai to the Tri-State area with “Warriors Cup XXI” worldwide on GFL.tv. Warriors Cup events have quickly carved out a popular niche for themselves on the Eastern seaboard as the place to see great standup fighting. The 12-bout “Warriors Cup XXI” event built on its momentum with a stacked card and delivered another great night of punches, kicks, knees and elbows!

In the main event, with the WBC International Challenge Championship on the line, Deividas Danyla defeated Rami Ibrahim via TKO in the second round. Danyla used his speed advantage in the early going as he was able to bounce on his toes and score with combos while Ibrahim missed with his counters. Danyla connected with low kicks, jabs, hooks and straights as Ibrahim continued to come forward but couldn’t quite catch Danyla with anything of substance. In the second round, Danyla began to open up his striking and connected with a spinning back elbow that caught Ibrahim flush and dropped him to the canvas. The strike came out of nowhere and caught Ibrahim off guard as it connected right on the jaw. Ibrahim tried to get back to his feet but he was wobbled and the ref called off the fight. It was a strong showing by Danyla who proved to be a force in the division with a decisive win against a gritty opponent.

In the fight of the night, John Nofer defeated Amine Ballafrikh via TKO in the fourth round. Ballafrikh found his rhythm early as he scored with leg kicks, and combos up top, but Nofer continued to battle back and started to hurt Ballafrikh in the third round with low kicks and then overhand lefts that shook Ballafrikh near the end of the round. Ballafrikh was now backing up and Nofer was dictating the fight. In the fourth round, Nofer connected with a high kick that dropped Ballafrikh. Once action was resumed Nofer continued to throw bombs and Ballafrikh was done. It was a great fight as both displayed nonstop action from the opening bell to the final bell.

For the 180 lb Warriors Cup Title, Ariel Abreu defeated Sean Woodham via KO in the first round. The taller Woodham used push kicks to keep Abreu away as he walked Abreu down. Abreu used some solid footwork to get off the ropes and connected with a right hand and left hand that sent Woodham back a few steps. Abreu had found his distance and on the next meaningful exchange he threw a left uppercut followed by an overhand right that connected flush and knocked Woodham out cold. Woodham fell face first to the mat. It was several minutes for Woodham to sit up but he did to the applause of the crowd and Abreu. It was a testament to the punching power of Abreu as he stopped a very tough fighter in Woodham with once punch.

Mississippi’s #1 MMA promotion returned on GFL as AFC presented “Atlas Fighting Championship 4″ emanating from the Golden Nugget Casino & Hotel in Biloxi, Mississippi. MMA fans, this event featured 8 finishes out of 11 fights showcasing the top up and combing prospects from the Gulf Coast. AFC is the premier MMA organization in the Magnolia State and proved why once again with this hard-hitting event.

In the main event, John “Doo Doo” Brown (10-4) defeated Alonzo Roane (3-5) via TKO in the first round of their heavyweight scrap. Brown connected with a one-punch KO as he dropped the southpaw Roane with an overhand right that connected squarely on the jaw of Roane. Brown followed up with punches on the ground, before the ref could stop the fight. Brown showed off some great punching power in the fight which lasted less than 30 seconds.

In the co-main event, Jason Knight (9-1) defeated Gilbert Burgos (6-4) via submission in the first round of a featherweight barnburner. Knight scored with a short right hand that staggered Burgos momentarily. Burgos regained his balance and clinched up with Knight as they tussled for position. Burgos got a takedown but ended up in the guard of Knight who employed a very active rubber guard looking to isolate one of Burgos’ shoulders. Knight was bleeding from the bridge of the nose, but that didn’t stop him from locking in a modified guillotine with his shin that was pushing against the throat of Burgos.

Rance Jones (4-1) defeated Dion Rizzuto via KO in the first round of their welterweight showdown. Jones connected with a hook that dropped Rizzuto in the opening exchange. Jones added more punches from the ground and Rizzuto covered up looking to regain his composure. Jones never let that happen as he continued to throw punches until the ref stopped the fight.

Chris Myers defeated Christian Reed via TKO in the second round while Monica Medina defeated Vanessa Marie-Grimes via KO in the first round. Tyler Stodghill defeated Josh Crumpton via triangle choke in the first round, while Isaiah Williams also picked up a submission win getting Dale Fulkerson to tapout to a guillotine choke in the first round of their bout.

You won’t find more BANG for your buck so order this thrilling event. Be sure to catch all of the action anytime on VOD as AFC presents “Atlas Fighting Championship 4″ on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv.
