USFFC returned to GFL.tv with “US Freedom Fighter Championship 17″. USFFC has made a mark for itself in the Southeast and “USFFC 17″ tore down the house once again. The 7-bout card featured a former UFC fighter and had 4 stoppages as everyone that entered the cage was looking to annihilate their competition.

In the main event, Eric Calderon (3-1) defeated UFC veteran Corey “The Real Deal” Hill (6-7) via split decision in a lightweight scrap.  This bout turned into a grappling match as both Hill and Calderon went for submission after submission throughout the fight.  Hill came close to a choke in the first round and controlled Calderon on the ground for the majority of the round.  In the second, Calderon went for a heel hook and ankle lock on the mat, but it was defended by Hill.  In the final round, Hill got a body lock takedown and the two continued to grapple on the mat as both fighters were still very active on the mat, looking to improve their position and finish the fight.   Hill had mount at one point, Calderon countered with an armbar attempt and it was constant action just like the previous two rounds.  In the end, it was a razor close decision and either fighter could have won.  What probably swung the fight in Calderon’s favor was near the end of the fight, Calderon scored with some nice ground and pound as Hill tried to counter with a triangle from the bottom in a great main event.

In the co-main event, Nathan Callahan (3-1) defeated Brian Telinda (2-3) via guillotine choke in the first round.  Telinda scored a nice takedown seconds into the fight, but Callahan popped back up immediately.  Telinda again shot in for a takedown and left his neck exposed.  Callahan wrapped Telinda up in a standing arm triangle guillotine and sunk the choke in deep forcing Telinda to tapout almost immediately.

In other action Brandon Barrett (4-0) defeated Jeff Roberts (3-8) via unanimous decision.  Barrett used a strong wrestling game to keep Roberts on his back for the majority of the fight.  Barrett worked inside the guard of Roberts as he scored with punches while also working in the mount at times.  Barrett also looked to improve his position and work for a submissions as he was going for broke the entire fight and set a pace that Roberts couldn’t catch up to.  Roberts fought back throughout the fight, he just couldn’t mount a sizeable offense because of the control that Barrett had with his wrestling.

In other action, Dillon Robertson and Bryan Fields both picked up submission wins while Jundi Gomez won via TKO and Maurice Lamb picked up the W after a decision.

Get ready for some All-American beat downs as “USFFC 17″ destroys all the other competition. Watch exclusively on GFL.tv on VOD and own it for life.

Arizona’s rising MMA promotion returned to GFL.tv as Crank It Up Promotions presented “Duel for Domination 7″ from the Arizona Event Center in Mesa, Arizona. MMA fans, this stacked card featured the top up and coming prospects inside the Grand Canyon State and around the Southwest.  “Duel for Domination 7″ delivered an action packed night of fights as the 15-bout card featured 10 stoppages as all of these warriors made a name for themselves not only in their home territory but to a worldwide audience on GFL.

In the main event, in the light heavyweight division, Jordan Johnson (1-0) of the MMA LAB defeated Fernando Smith (0-2) of Blackhouse MMA via TKO in the first round.  Johnson is a 2X All American wrestler from Iowa and Smith has a solid game plan as he traded shots with Johnson and made it a boxing match in the early going.  Smith scored with a nice hook that wobbled Johnson and stuffed a takedown attempt from Johnson.  Johnson responded with several uppercuts and a knee to the body that hurt Smith.  Johnson added more uppercuts and a knee to the head and Smith fell to the mat where Johnson pounced on him and threw more punches as Smith tried to cover up but offered no resistance and the ref finally called a halt to the fight.

In the lightweight division, Drakkar Klose (1-0) defeated Norman McLaughlin (1-2) via TKO in the first round.  Klose came out with a fast pace and started winging punches as McLaughlin responded with strikes of his own.  Klose connected and sent McLaughlin down on his back where Klose moved from side control to McLaughlin’s back.  Klose had the hooks in deep and punched McLaughlin from this position.  The gritty McLaughlin was able to fight off the attacks and get back to his feet where they squared off once again.  McLaughlin landed some nice kicks, especially a kick to the body, but Klose responded with vicious knees up against the cage and teed off with elbows to the head of McLaughlin.  Klose continued to connect with knees from the clinch and the ref stepped in to stop the fight.  Klose showed off a well-rounded game and trains out of the world-famous LAB so he will only get better as he progresses in the sport.

In other action, Augusto “Tanquinho” Mendes defeated Xavi Ramirez by submission in the first round, David Contreras defeated Ronee Dizon by split decision to win the D4D flyweight title in a fight that saw both men reach down to the depths of their soul and give the fans one of the best fights of any promotion in 2014, Barb Cellular submitted Nicole Upshaw in the second while Humberto Duarte defeated Arturo Guzman by TKO in the first and Adel Kyokushin defeated Benny Arambula by TKO in the first.

Legend III Review

CLICK HERE TO ORDER – http://www.gfl.tv/Events/Fight/KickBoxing/Legend_Fighting_Show_III/2369

GFL brings you the most stacked kickboxing tournament of 2014 so far as “Legend III” makes its highly anticipated debut on the #1 combat sports streaming network on April 5 from Milan, Italy. The tournament will get together the best kickboxers from around the world in the weight class under 71 kg.

In the main event, Murthel Groenhart defeated Dzhabar Askerov via KO in the first round.  Groenhart and Askerov traded leg kicks in the early going as Askerov didn’t have a problem with the height advantage of Groenhart.  Both men blistered the strikes into each other’s thighs but neither man backed up.  Groenhart began to open up throwing high kicks, push kicks and knees as he seemed to find his rhythm quickly.  Groenhart connected with a flying knee and short right hook that dropped Askerov.  Askerov beat the count but when the two resumed the fight, Groenhart scored with a right hand-left hook combo that put Askerov down again, ending the fight in dramatic fashion for Groenhart who was a late replacement in the tournament but took center stage after defeating Askerov who many people believed would win the tournament.  Now all eyes shift to Groenhart who put the rest of the athletes on notice that he was the man to beat.

Pavel Zhuravlev defeated Michal Turynski via majority decision as both men slugged it out for three rounds with nonstop action.  Zhuravlev continued to come forward and press the action while throwing bombs along the way.  It was a close fight and either man could have been KO’d as they were both throwing punches with bad intentions.

Speaking of KOs, Paul Daley reminded the world that his left hook is as good a punch as any in the world as Daley KO’d Alexander Surjko in the third round.  For MMA fans, this is nothing new as Daley has done this exact same thing to numerous opponents, but seeing him drop a high-level kickboxer with one shot puts that punch in a class of its own.  Daley overcame a bloody nose after taking a knee to the face early in the fight to finish Surjko off with a highlight reel KO.  Daley put Surjko down with a left hook but Surjko rose to his feet and the two exchanged punches again, until seconds later Daley connected with another left hook that sent Surjko down again as the ref stopped the fight.  Daley has a fighting style that presents matchup problems for almost everyone and he showed on this night that he is always just one punch away from ending any fight.

Andy Souwer picked up a solid win over Yuri Bessmertny via unanimous decision.  It was vintage Souwer who dominated the exchanges and racked up points over each round with his workmanlike performance.  Souwer seemed to get stronger and more active as the fight wore on as he landed a higher volume of combos in the final round and put Bessmertny on the defensive almost from the get-go.  Souwer is another fighter who has to be considered a favorite in some circles to win the whole tourney.

Don’t miss this world-renowned event. If you love kickboxing, you won’t find a better show this year. Order now and watch these gladiators throw down in one of the most grueling combat sports around. Order “Legends III” and own it for life on GFL.tv!

American Predator Fighting Championship returned on GFL.tv from the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, Illinois with “APFC 16″. The top professional and amateur MMA fighters from around the Midwest competed on this stacked 13 bout card, as APFC put on another stellar show headlined by a former UFC #1 Contender.

In the main event, former #1 UFC Contender and decorated fighter, Jeremy Horn (90-21-5) defeated Dan McGlasson (10-14) in the first round via rear naked choke.  After a quick feeling out process, Horn scored with a takedown then moved to side control.  Horn tried to isolate an arm but then took the back of McGlasson.  McGlasson reversed the position and put Horn on his back, until Horn countered and put McGlasson’s shoulders on the canvas in a nice bit of grappling by both men.  Horn once again got the back of McGlasson who tried to turtle up and stay tight with his defense.  Horn scored with a punch or two, then worked his arm underneath the throat of McGlasson and got the submission.

In the co-main event, Louis Taylor (10-3) defeated Robert Gotreau (7-2) via guillotine choke in the first round after a wild middleweight fight.  The stocky Gotreau took a kick but shot in and scored a takedown in the opening seconds.  The bigger Taylor fought out of the position and got back to his feet where he and Gotreau exchanged punches.  Gotreau got in deep again with a takedown, this time a double leg, as Taylor found himself on his back again.  Taylor rose to his feet again and peppered the jab at Gotreau before scoring a nice lat drop of his own.  In the scramble, Taylor found the neck of Gotreau and sunk in the guillotine for the quick tapout in an action packed fight.

In other action, Carson Beebe defeated DeAndrew Jones via TKO in the second round, while Melvin Blummer defeated Dennis Dombrow via KO in the second round as well.  Also, kYousef Al-Ghoul TKO’d Jonathon Thomson in the first with a nice combo.

Canada’s longest running MMA show returned to GFL.tv as Rumble in the Cage presented “RITC 49″ at the South Pavillion, Exhibition Park in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada with a stacked 13-bout pro/am card full of exciting bouts, including a title fight. Rumble in the Cage is a breeding ground for international talent and “RITC 49″ was another home run for the Canadian organization.

In the main event, in a pro lightweight battle, Derek Boyle (12-6) defeated Jose Rodriguez (7-3) via split decision.  Both Boyle and Rodriguez gave the fans a hell of a fight as neither one backed down an inch and where content to duke it out rivaling any fight this year.  Both fighters were cut up by the end as blood poured from these two gladiators.  It was a great striking battle where Boyle used his range at times scoring with punches from the outside but also added knees and kicks into the mix.  Rodriguez did a nice job of counter punching but Boyle also used his wrestling to get takedowns, improve position and try and work submission attempts that added more points in his corner when all was said and done.  A very entertaining fight from these two warriors.

In a kickboxing match, Matt Krayco defeated Peter Neufeld by split decision.  The fists were flying early as these two strikers went toe to toe for 3 rounds.  Krayco walked Neufeld down and continued to come forward initiating contact, but both fighters scored with nice combos in a nice addition to an otherwise all MMA card.

In other pro action, Devon Neis (4-3) defeated Shawn Pauliuk (0-6) in the first round via TKO in a rematch fight.  This was the wildest fight of the night as Pauliuk came out like a bat out of hell and hit Neis with several punches that split Neis open.  Pauliuk grabbed a guillotine takedown and tried to finish the fight on the mat, but Neis reversed the position to side control in his favor.  They both rose to their feet where Pauliuk continued to tee off on the face of Neis who somehow remained on his feet and throwing punches.  Pauliuk started to punch himself out and Neis responded with solid overhand lefts.  Neis added a hard knee to the face and then one to the body that bent Pauliuk over.  Neis continued to throw punches as Pauliuk stopped fighting back and the ref stepped in as Neis came from behind to win a fantastic fight.

Trenton Rowell (1-3) submitted Adam Kaupp (0-3) in the first round after a freak injury in which Kaupp hurt his foot/ankle.  Kaupp scored with a takedown seconds into the fight.  Rowell reversed the position and during the ensuing roll, Kaupp got his foot caught in an awkward spot where he suffered the injury.  Kaupp didn’t tap immediately instead trying to fight back, but as Rowell grabbed a head lock and scored with punches, Kaupp had to tapout because of the foot injury.

Triple A MMA V returned to GFL with “Redemption at the Rock” emanating from the Camel Rock Casino in Sante Fe, New Mexico. The 9-bout card featured 5 stoppages as some of the finest fighters in the Land of Enchantment squared off against one another.

In the main event, Gabriel “Moggly” Benitez (16-4) defeated Angelo “San I Warrior” Sanchez (11-6) via unanimous decision in a welterweight battle after both men engaged in an all-out war where they both threw down for three rounds.  The southpaw Benitez scored with solid straight lefts throughout the fight that found their mark and did damage to Sanchez.  Benitez was the more polished boxer as his combos scored more often than not.  Sanchez was the stronger wrestler as he got several takedowns in the fight that nullified the striking of Benitez for a time, but Benitez found a way to get back to his feet and continue to let his hands go.  On this night, both Benitez and Sanchez won over the crowd with their heart and ferocity inside the cage as they both absorbed tons of punishment and kept dishing it out too.

In the co-main event, featherweight Andres “The Bullet” Quintana (5-1) defeated Derek Perez (4-3) via TKO in the first round.   Quintana was quick to shake off any ring rust as he and Perez started trading strikes right from the onset.  Perez looked to close the distance and went for body lock takedowns on several occasions but Quintana held his ground and defended well.  Later, Perez went for another takedown and was stuffed as both fighters went to the mat.  Quintana scored with elbows to the side of Perez’s head as Perez covered up.  Quintana added a solid knee to the body, but Perez moved position and attempted to lock on a heel hook.  Quintana stood back up and when he returned to the ground he connected with strong ground and pound that finally was able to stop the gritty Perez in a wild fight.

In other action, in a No Gi Super fight, Quinn Mulhern (Gracie Barra-NM) defeated Josh Lanier (Hybrid Jiu-Jitsu) via north-south choke in a very technical grappling match.  For Mulhern, who recently retired from MMA, this was a great win and kept his competitive spirit alive.  Mulhern was able to pass Lanier’s guard and stay strong in top position and finally maneuvered over to Lanier’s neck where he sunk in the match ending submission.

In the 105 lb division, Natalie Roy (1-0) defeated Nikki Lowe (2-4) via TKO in the first round.  It was a great showing by Roy in her pro debut.  Roy and Lowe exchanged punches early in the center of the ring, then Roy managed to land multiple knees to the midsection of Lowe from the clinch.  Roy opened up even more from this position as she connected with a perfect right hand to Lowe’s jaw that dropped Lowe.  Roy followed up on the mat with a couple more strikes until the ref stopped the bout.

Unified MMA debuted on GFL with “Unified MMA 18″ from the Mirage Banquet Hall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  The 8-bout card had plenty of fireworks as 6 bouts ended in stoppage.  Unified MMA put on an action packed event and presented their show to a worldwide audience for the first time by broadcasting on GFL.tv.  Expect many more top notch shows from this growing organization.

In the main event, Tanner Boser (5-0) submitted Nick Campbell (5-5) by rear naked choke in the second round of a light heavyweight bout to remain undefeated.  The first round saw these two battling for positional dominance in the clinch like two strong oxen with no real advantage for either man.  In the second, Boser and Campbell went right back into the clinch and looked for an advantage.  After a break from the ref, both fighters started throwing leather until Boser got in deep with a body lock and was able to wrestle Campbell to the mat.  Boser scored with a few punches then quickly took the back of Campbell.  After defending well from this position, Campbell finally succumbed to the rear naked choke of Boser with less than 10 seconds left in the round.

Chris Ade (10-16) defeated Neil Doty (4-4) via TKO in the first round.  Ade got the fight to the mat with a punch and ankle pick takedown.  Once on the ground, Doty rained down punches until the ref stopped the fight in a bout that lasted less than two minutes.

In another lightweight contest, Matthew Spisak (6-5) defeated Lee Gaudet (2-3) via unanimous decision.  In the fight of the night, these two gladiators never stopped trying to end each other’s night.  Spisak used his strong wrestling to control where the action went and fight his fight.  On the ground, Spisak’s control allowed him to score with punches while on the feet both Spisak and Gaudet threw bombs at each other.  It was a solid win for Spisak who gave up a size advantage in the fight but didn’t let that deter him from victory.

In a lightweight scrap, Mike Scarcello (4-3-1) defeated Yannick Pare (2-2) via unanimous decision.  Both fighters showed signs of greatness but Scarcello landed the harder strikes and was able to dictate the pace of the fight with his wrestling and grappling.  Both fighters gave it their all, but in the end, Scarcello was too strong and took the decision.

BAMMA USA – Badbeat 12 Review

Courtesy of Jonathan King The Clinch Report

Bamma USA is known for putting on some of the best Mixed Martial Arts fights in California. Last night reinforced that recognition with some well balanced match-ups, and fighters who left all of their efforts in the cage.

Early on in the event, The Commerce Casino was rocked with a earthquake that registered 5.1 on the Richter scale. The after shocks, were hardly noticed as the crowd spent most of the night on their feet cheering loudly.

With the ground vibrating, the night was highlighted with spectacular efforts from a few fighters, one of which was former TUF contestant Chris Beal; who looked extremely comfortable as he dispatched a very game Keith Carson. Beal utilized his superior striking skills to take out the jittery Carson, who never seemed to get comfortable.

Beal utilized his superior counter striking and kept Carson guessing and flailing with random strikes that never seemed to threaten Beal. Beal maintained his composure, and showed excellent growth as he patiently waited for the opening instead of forcing the finish.

Comebacks are always entertaining, and Kevin Bostick’s comeback KO had the Casino shaking again. Bostick was able to absorb a vicious head kick from Chris Pena late in the first round. Moments later he countered a knee attempt with a huge uppercut that connected with Pena’s chin, immediately turning off the lights. Pena fell supine as the arena erupted with excitement.

The ladies also made a huge impression as Melanie Lacroix and Brooksie Baynard put on a back and forth battle that left both fighters battered. Baynard pressed the action the entire fight, utilizing her brute strength to her advantage, tossing Lacroix at first. However, Lacroix quickly changed her game plan, and was able to land countless knees in the clinch to Baynard’s face. Lacroix cruised to a close unanimous decision win. The fight was clearly a fan favorite, as the crowd stood for the entire second and third rounds.

Terrion Ware is quickly becoming the name you want to know, before everyone else in the world of MMA does. Last night, he proved why he should be the next guy on the UFC’s radar. Ware outlasted Eric Winston in a very tough 5 round war that netted ‘The Flash’ his first Bamma USA Title at 135 lbs. Winston proved to be a very tough opponent as advertised, and he was able to take down Ware on multiple occasions. However, outside of a near choke in the first round, he was never able to mount much offense with his dominant position. Ware was able to get out of that situation and never seemed in trouble on the mat after that round.

The fight came down to Ware’s superior counter punching. On multiple occasions he changed levels and countered with body shots and finished upstairs with the hook. Winston’s chin held up, and he was even able to clip Ware late in the fourth round. However, Ware came out for the start of the fifth with renewed vigor. Although, Winston was able to score another take down, Ware was able to get up after Referee Mike Beltran stood the fighters up, due too lack of action. Once standing Ware lit Winston up with body shots, and even attempted a few flying knees late that missed their mark.

Terrion Ware dedicated the win, and the title to the memory of his grandmother who passed away earlier in the week.

Once again the promoter Brett Roberts and his team created an atmosphere where the fighters decide the success of the event, and once again the fighters delivered. Bamma USA offers some of the most competitive fights available, and for the die hard fan, the pay per availability should be “must watch TV”. The fighters are hungry, aggressive, and the match-ups break the mold of the one sided regional promotions.

Notes: Also winning were Lateef Williams who dispatched Paul Karsky quickly with a slam and following choke; Kyra Batara impressively beat Misha Nassiri via Armbar; Benji Gomez outlasted David Duran, Christian Aguilera defeated Kory Kelly; Greg Parker defeated Paul Song; Justin Jones submitted Paul Gemmati; and Steve Kozola TKO’d Tommy Gavin.

Hard hitting MMA action returned as Dead Serious Fighting Championship presented “Dead Serious X” from the Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey only on the GFL Combat Sports Network. The stacked card featured multiple title fights that turned into barnburners from the opening bell.

In the main event, for the Dead Serious Featherweight Title, Champion Sergio DeBari (5-0-1) and Aldo Oranvil (3-1-1) fought to a majority draw.  DeBari retains the title and would have won the fight outright had he not had a point deducted in the second round for an illegal strike after one of DeBari’s body punches was deemed low.  It was a judgment call by the ref and it turned out to be the difference in the fight.  Both fighters fought a great fight.  There were tremendous scrambles that changed the momentum back and forth which each gaining an advantage at the drop of a hat.  Oranvil had his best round in the third after DeBari had gotten the better of the exchanges and grappling in the first and second.  It was a fast paced fight with a lot of top notch grappling with both fighters exerting their positional dominance at times.  DeBari gave a great speech after the fight and when he was heckled by some fans in the crowd he challenged them to come in the ring to put their money where their mouth was.  Of course the fans declined.

In the co-main event for the Dead Serious Featherweight Title, Brandon Urquijo (4-0) defeated Anthony Genovese (4-1) via unanimous decision.  This fight was another back and forth fight as Urquijo and Genovese exchanged in the center of the ring over and over again. These two went to battle in the striking department but Urquijo pulled out the decision partly with his head movement and feints that let him be first to the punch more often than not.  The southpaw Genovese landed with several overhand lefts but Urquijo darted in and out and was not going to be hit with a combo.  It was a close fight and stylistically hard to judge, as both men came out to bang.

Ron Templeton (3-1) defeated Juan Galarza (4-1) via unanimous decision to win the Dead Serious Lightweight Championship.  Templeton won the title with an awesome wrestling game where he was able to score multiple takedowns on Galarza and once on the ground, utilize a nice ground and pound game where he scored with punches inside of Galarza’s guard.  Templeton is going to be tough to beat at 155 lb.
